 Check out the Quality Inn and Ballroom facility:

  • the ballroom; very clean and spacious.  We will have two quilters per table, PLENTY of room and many of OUR VERY POPULAR raised, shared cutting and pressing stations.
  •   
  • the attached Quality Inn. The Quality Inn is approximately 10 years old and has been recently remodeled.  To see more check out their website at http://www.qualityinnmineralpoint.com/
Other information regarding the retreat:
  • You are always welcome to work on a project of your own instead or in addition to the group projects.  We encourage you to bring other projects from home that you would like help on to complete. 
  • We participate in a "quilt that gives back."  We work, as a group on a quilt and it is completed and machine quilted by Quilts by Barb.  This has always been a part of our retreats and our 2012 quilt will be donated to a special someone who is nominated by a participant at the retreat.
     
     "Orphan Blocks for Marissa"
    Everyone has orphan blocks.  Our 2011 participants donated their blocks, Diane Lapacek constructed the quilt, Marcia donated the fabric for the backing and binding, 3M donated the batting, Barb P did the hand binding on the quilt and Barb R machine quilted it.  This is what I call a group effort!
    The quilt was delivered to Marissa and I am sure she is getting great comfort from it during her recovery and in years to come.
  • The "yard that keeps on going........."  You have to attend a retreat to learn more about it! 
  • Show and Tell by our participants.  This is a favorite of all quilters.  We show quilts completed from past retreats as well as other quilts and quilt items. 
  • Our goal is to offer you an educational and relaxing weekend with the best; other quilters!
  • Do you live within driving distance of the retreat?  You are not required to stay at the hotel to participate.  We would love to have you!
