Salem Quilt Retreats

Prepare to be pampered...

 Retreats & Workshops with a HISTORIC FLAIR! 

356 Quilt Shop

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!


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.

Retreats with a Historic Flair

The Historic Brookstown Inn

The Historic Brookstown Inn in The Old Salem Historic District near downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina. A short stroll to Old Salem Museums & Gardens and MESDA, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts.  The Inn started its life as Salem Manufacturing Company and was one of the first mills in the south to utilize electric lighting. The newly renovated seventy guest room inn  includes a large courtyard and a grand ballroom accommodating our quilters! The Cotton Mill Lounge hosts wine and cheese each night and is a great place to visit with friends.
