Devorah Quilting Kallah

March 21-25, 2018

OSRUI has pieced together this fabulous adult program for all levels of quilters. At Devorah we will explore ways to stitch together our creativity, spirituality, Jewish identity, and personal life stories into quilts that wrap us with warmth both physically and emotionally.

Quilt2Professional quilting instructor Flo London will serve as our guide. OSRUI's beautiful Daniel M. Soref Education and Alumni Center, with a large, airy rotunda will be used as a studio and programming space. During our time together we will celebrate Shabbat with song and prayer. And there will be plenty of opportunity to take quiet walks along the beach, explore quaint Oconomowoc, and just relax by the fireplace (not to mention that there are several fabulous quilt shops nearby).

Quilters may arrive starting at 4 pm on Wednesday, and clean up and pack up after breakfast on Sunday.
