2024 Hood Canal July 15-19

You will travel to a beautiful place in western Washington that will leave a lasting impression on your heart. We spend our week in a large log lodge with cozy fireplaces, breathtaking views, great food and plenty of sewing space. There’s even an outside fireplace where we’ll toast marshmallows. Fun and yum!
Our first retreat center 25+ years ago and one of our all-time favorite locations, this special place is inspiring and breathtakingly beautiful. When you are not quilting, you can sit on the deck overlooking Hood Canal and get lost in time. We cannot say enough good things about what you will experience, and the quilters that have gone with us before would agree.

We suggest you 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 2024. The cost is $989 and includes lodging, farm-to-table locally sourced meals, local outings to nearby Alderbrook Lodge, local shops for Olympic Mountain Ice Cream, professional quilting instructions, quilt shopping, games, and of course the class. A $75 non-refundable deposit will hold your reservation and will be applied to your account balance.

We welcome all levels of quilting ability and promise to develop and challenge your skills.

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

For more information, feel free to email or talk with Geri at 503-866-4515.
