Mobility needs? There are eight main floor rooms, which are held aside for guests with mobility needs. Guests may be asked to share a room.
Food allergies? Help us help you by indicating food allergies when you register. Our food service manager will send you a menu two weeks before the retreat, which includes the alternatives we make available. Feel free to give Kari a call before you arrive, as she is happy to answer your questions. 320-732-3218 ext. 1010

NEW! One-Stop Shop Hop
You are in for a sweet treat at the Old Creamery Quilt Shop in Randall, MN. Instead of a vendor coming to us this fall, we are headed to Randall (just 30 min away) on Saturday morning. The One-Stop Shop Hop is a creative alternative to an onsite vendor due to staffing issues at various area quilt shops.
Linda at the Old Creamery has planned fun demos, what's new, and ways in which to expand your skills.
Time to explore samples and check out the beautiful displays.
Find something you just can't live without, and use your coupon!
We will carpool to Randall when the shop opens at 10 am on Saturday morning.
Lunch will be ready when we return.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
When can I arrive? We will be ready to welcome you beginning at 10:00 AM. Lunch is served at 12:30 PM.
Do I have to leave? Guests must be out of lodging by 12:00 PM on the last day and are welcome to sew until 4:00 PM.
FREE classes for retreat guests!
WISH I'D KNOWN CLASSES are offered each session for our guests who are interested in reviewing the basics and learning tips and tricks regarding fabrics, needles and threads, accurate measuring and cutting, perfect quarter inch, piecing and pressing, borders, binding, machine quilting or preparing your quilt top for the long-armer. Attend all, or pick and choose. No pre-registration. The schedule will be posted at the retreat.
FREE! Start to Finish Class! Pass down the tradition of quilting to your friends and family without having to teach them yourself during the retreat. Our experienced, in-house instructors will guide participants through accurate measuring and cutting, piecing, and adding borders. Lots of one on one instruction! Students will leave with a completed table runner - quilted and bound! Beginners should register for class when registering for their quilt session. Seasoned quilters are welcome to make the runner as well!
