Quilt Retreats

IQI offers two fabulous weekend retreats for members and guests: a Fall Retreat and our Quilt-In Retreat in late January. We look forward to getting together!
If you’ve never attended, consider:
  • Having your own table and time dedicated for your favorite textile projects
  • Setting up once in a secure building and work the hours you want, even all night
  • The opportunity to learn a new technique or two
  • Being among interested, encouraging and helpful fabric aficionados
  • No cooking, because meals are included
  • Plus, snacks and beverages from your room or for purchase (oh, so many snacks!)
  • Your choice of a single or two-person hotel bedroom (register with your roommate, or we’ll match you with someone nice)
  • Load in and out easily from the sewing room
  • Quilt Crawl, a time of sharing of quilts and their stories
  • Saturday workshops
  • Free parking
  • Non-members pay the same rate this year
  • Don’t register with the hotel, we will take care of it all!
Sound inviting? Check our newsletter, The Oakleaf for specifics and sign up early, as space is limited to 30 folks! Please contact any of us with your questions or suggestions at:
