Two-Day Quilting Retreat

We offer two-day quilting retreat packages for out-of-town quilters who want to get away for awhile and quilt!
Quilting retreats are by appointment and can be scheduled for two consecutive days either during the week or over the weekend.

How it works:
Quilting retreats are designed for two friends who want to spend time together using our long-arm quilting machines. We offer hands-on help and training when you want it, plus independence to work at your own pace, too.

The package cost is $375 (total is $405 with NYS sales tax) and includes 15 hours of studio time divided over two days however you'd like AND a hotel room for two at the nearby Microtel (breakfast is included.)

What's included:
Quilting retreat packages include the use of our Innova quilting machines, cutting table, books, videos, rulers and pantograph designs. You can also use our sewing/piecing classroom when not in use by other students.

You supply your own practice fabric and/or finished quilt tops and backing. (You may purchase practice fabric from us, if you prefer.)

You may bring your own batting or you may purchase Quilters Dream batting from us. You can successfully quilt with a variety of battings – including Warm and Natural, Hobbs and Quilters Dream – but please don't bring "scratchy" polyester battings as they can be difficult to use.

We provide thread for your use in the At-Home Quilting Studio. We stock a wide range of colors, (including variegated), weights and brands of long-arm quilting threads that we also sell at a discount. If you need a color or kind that we don't have in stock, we can special order it.

Keep in mind:

Our frames can accommodate quilt widths up to 108 inches

Quilt tops should be pressed, squared and trimmed of loose threads before
   loading on the frame

Batting & backing should be at least 4 inches wider and 8 inches longer than
   the quilt top
