WHAT ARE ACCOMMODATIONS LIKE?

We provide dormitory style housing with rooms that accommodate 2-7 guests, more if upper bunks are used.  The bathrooms are just down the hall. 

  • Mobility needs?  There are eight main floor rooms, which are held aside for guests with mobility needs.  Occasionally, guests needing main floor accommodations 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 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

  • Roommate requests?  When you register, list the first and last names of everyone you’d like housed in your room. 

  • Bedding? No linens will be provided this year.  Please bring your pillow, all bedding for a twin bed, bath sets and toiletries. (Note, there is one full-size bed in each Edlund room).

​​
Can I sew next to my friends?   When you register, list the first and last names of everyone in your quilting group. We will do our best to accommodate your table assignments.

Can I bring a side table or machine table? It is not recommended this year due to the new configuration of individual tables. If side tables block passage between tables or aisles, they will need to be removed. Please plan to bring a pressing mat for your personal 8’ sewing table.

What quilt shops will be here?
If there are projects offered by our guest vendors that require materials or a cost, or you need to register for the class, the details will be posted on our website and sent via email. For class and demo descriptions from Quilt Haven on Main, click HERE

When can I sign up for massages?  Offered on Saturdays and Wednesday.  Choose a 30 minute or an hour long session.  Sign up when you arrive at camp.
