Proper Bostonian Quilters head northwest to Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire for their annual June quilt getaway. In the shadow of Mt. Monadnock and atop the hill overlooking the shores of Pearly Pond, Franklin Pierce (approximately 60 miles northwest of Boston) is the perfect setting. Quilters set up in the Lakeside Conference Center located adjacent to Pearly Pond. Quilters have individual work stations and share design boards, layout/cutting tables and ironing stations. For four days, participants concentrate on creating new or completing unfinished quilts while enjoying various campus attractions away from the quilting center. They can swim, sail, kayak and fish or just take a walk around the campus. The campus athletic center is a short hike up the hill to the main campus. Double-room accommodations are just across the street in Lakeview townhouses that overlook Pearly Pond. Two quilters per room share a private bath. Meals include dinner on Thursday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday and brunch and box lunches on Sunday.
