Friends Gather Together with a Private Booking

Did you know that we book private retreats here at The Quilter’s Lodge? Friends gather together and share their love of quilting, crafting and simply each other. Need a space big enough to host you and your friends? Maybe a central location between homes? Need to finish some long neglected projects? Or simply want to get away from your kids for a few days? Booking a private weekend with us is the solution.

This is a fun group of ladies recently visited us and enjoyed a few days of fun quilting the night away and shopping at Thimbles and Threads for needed supplies during the day!!

Check out the fun projects these ladies quilted over the weekend.  Debbie – Scarlet Stars Pattern

Mary – Pocket Change Pattern
Lindsey –  Thimble Blossoms House pattern using Dwell Fabrics by Kim Diehl Fabric.@reader_37

My First Experience Staying at The Quilter’s Lodge

I wanted to let you all know how great I thought your Lodging Facilities were last week during my stay for the Laura Heine Collage Workshop.  First of all the staff for the Lodge was awesome, I was not left wanting a single thing.  To me your facility was more like a Bed and Breakfast than any Retreat Center I have ever been to.  I could have easily brought along my husband and he would have also been very comfortable.  It was great having extra time at the end of class to continue working on my projects and not feel like I had to get back home right away.  Even some of the local ladies decided to stay the night at the last minute!  The Lodge is located in a quiet area yet within 5 minutes to any other kind of shopping I may have wanted to do.  I will definitely be back and hopefully next time with friends or family!

Fiberworks Retreat – Customer Testimonial

We had such a great time at The Quilter’s Lodge. What a beautiful place.
Jonell & Instructor, Laura Heine
My husband, Tim, and I arrived late in the evening to find quilters busily working on their projects in the large classroom.  Introductions were quickly made and not to impede progress, we settled into our room while the ladies continued to work into the night. It is such an advantage to be able to work after the designated classroom time.
The classroom adjoins the quilt shop which displays full lines of fabric collections and all the notions you could possibly need. So perfect for a retreat or workshop to have everything in one facility, especially if you are traveling.
Sherie, you and Mindy were so accommodating. Your willingness to setup additional work areas following the workshop was very much appreciated.
Tim was provided several areas to relax and work on his projects and appreciated all the effort to make his stay so comfortable.  The Quilter’s Lodge is designed to feel like a “home away from home”.
Thank you for a wonderful experience,
JoNell and Tim from Colorado

Education Trunk Show with Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts

We know you all love a good trunk show, but we wanted to tell you why the upcoming Joannna Figueroa’s Trunk Show is different. This isn’t the typical trunk show where you look at quilts and eat cookies….

Joanna will take us for a ride down designer’s lane as she teaches COLOR The Fig Free Way through her Educational Trunk Show. Using her lovely quilts, Joanna, will teach a different perspective of the color wheel and color schemes. After this evening you will know if any color can be warm or cold!

Trunk Show is part of the Quilt & Woolies retreat. However, if you’re not able to attend the treat
but want to meet Joanna Figueroa you can attend the Trunk Show ONLY on March 23rd at 7:00pm for $25.00.

Fiberworks Workshop: Floral & Painterly 2-Day Workshop & Lunch

Floral collage is a technique where fused, cut motifs are arranged on a foundation within a silhouette to create a one-of-a-kind quilt.  Color and value and the use of large, medium and small scale motifs will be achieved in this class.  “Painterly” collage focuses on the use of strips and palette of solid appearing fabrics to create a collage.  Combining the two techniques creates an interesting combination for any collage.
