Denman Quilters at Capernwray

          A quilting retreat at Capernwray is my idea of heaven. The meals are gourmet and the location is truly serene and awe inspiriing. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The only thing better than one retreat each year is two or three. I go home feeling rejuvenated each time. - Eileen Wright

         Love the well lit, bright, roomy "sewing studio". The grounds are a delight and obviously lovingly cared for. I really appreciate Andy's cooking from scratch approach, the food is nicely done. Many thanks.



         What a pleasant surprise! The view of the facilities from the ferry was very impressive. The buildings and the grounds looked so clean and well kept.
Having meals with some of your students/workers made for some interesting conversations and a feeling of welcome.
The room for our quilting retreat was well set up and with great light. Thank you for having us.



         To the Staff -
What a wonderful, wonderful facility for a quilt retreat. The food is divine!! The young people are exemplary - our nation is in good hands for the future for sure.
The only suggestion I would make is to have a chair in the shower rooms so you can dress your feet easily when getting dressed. Keep up the good work. Choice blessing to you all. - Lois Robertson



         Capernwray -
A delightful place to holiday - friendly staff, great food, beautiful surroundings. A great feeling of peace and contentment is created here. Highly recommended. - Turid Olafson, Quilter, Denman Island, BC



         I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Capernwray . The setting is beautiful, the food decadent, and the sleeping accommodations comfortable. I have taken advantage of your beautifully maintained trails and absorbed the wonderful ocean view. - Rollande?, Denman Island

         What a wonderful place. So calm and peaceful. Excellent food and such a pleasure to be seated family style and being able to meet new people. - Lynn Grieder, Denman Island Quilters



         I come to quilt and go home with a quilt and every time I look at my quilt, I think of the great fellowship with the staff and wonderful time and great food I shared with everyone.


         The food has always been delicious and even more so because I don't have to cook it. Accommodation is good and the scenery and staff "out of this world". We have always had a wonderful time when we come. We also actually do get some quilting done. - Buelah Freisen, Quilter


         As the Irish song states, "A little bit of heaven fall from out the sky one day" I cannot describe Capernwray any better. The breathtaking beauty of the area and the fellowship of other quilters, the staff and other guests send us home from our retreat elated.



         This is the third year that I have come to a quilting retreat at Capernwray. I look forward to this wonderful experience. The staff are so pleasant and cheerful. I really enjoy the young students. The food is delicious and the grounds are so beautiful. Thank you!
