About Us

We've EXPANDED Our Salem Quilt Retreats & Workshops!

Our three day Quilt Retreats in historic settings are designed to pamper and give you time to sew your projects. A Quilt Shop partner is present with demos, fun and a store for items you need & those enticing goodies you just want to have.

A few times a year, we have a guest teacher visiting for a retreat and offer a workshop open to all quilters before the retreat begins.

See Event Calendar for details!

We now host events in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; South Boston, Virginia and Blowing Rock, North Carolina!

Retreat Products chosen with YOU in mind!

We are often asked where we found a favorite tool or goodie. Now, you can purchase selected items in advance and we will have it ready and waiting at your table when you arrive. We LOVE our "Brick & Mortar" Quilt Shop partners and want them to survive the retail scene... 10% of your purchase goes directly to the Quilt Shop at your retreat.  We strive to complement, not compete. Buy your retreat supplies today and have them waiting for you at the retreat! Gypsy Sit upon and Swan Amity Quilting Gloves and a few other items  are available now. More to come.

Quilt! Carolina

We also coordinate the premier Shop Hop in North Carolina. The only shop hop with a full color Book with complete patterns and templates!

Plan to join us October 1-10, 2020. Information is available on the event website
