2021 Ashland Oregon August 22 - 26

Ashland's beauty will first capture you with its unique geographic setting being nestled at the base of the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain ranges but that is just the beginning. You will also discover all the fabulous offerings Ashland has in store for you. Home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Oregon Cabaret Theater and many outstanding wineries, these are only a few of the spectacular attractions you will have the option of attending. You may want to extend your trip for a day in Crater Lake National Park, only 90 minutes away.

In addition to classroom instruction, there are outings to the historic town of Jacksonville and of course a visit to the local outstanding quilt shop. Downtown Ashland is charming with lovely shops, galleries and Lithia Park, a jewel in the heart of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival plaza. You will have time to play, quilt, meet new friends and enjoy some well deserved time away while you make friendships and memories that last a lifetime.

Our Ashland retreat is an incredible value at $899 for the 5 day 4 night stay. The fee includes lodging in a Trip Advisor 4.5 star facility with double occupancy. Single occupancy is available for a higher fee. The facility includes a swimming pool, hot tub, fitness center, tennis court and bikes for touring.

Sign up early as our retreats fill quickly. To make it easy to budget, we offer an installment plan, at no extra charge, that begins January 2021 and ends in June 2021. The cost is $899 and includes meals, hiking trails, outings to local quilt shops, professional quilting instructions, games, and of course the class.

A few weeks before your retreat, we will have a planning meeting with all lucky participating quilters to talk about travel plans and all the details.
