Registration for the October Retreat is now open.
October Quilting Retreat, Oct. 16-20, 2019, in Millersburg deep in the heart of Ohio Amish Country.
Established in 1865, Millersburg is a perfect place to slow down, visit with new and old friends, discover Ohio Amish country, and submerge yourself in your fabric art.
Join us this Fall of 2019, for a relaxing get-a-way beyond compare. Enjoy five days/four nights relaxing, getting to know new friends, eating delicious meals that you don’t have to clean up after, sewing and eating some more! Settle in with the Mystery Quilt from MLR Designs created specifically for this retreat or bring your own projects to work on. Or do both!
Your retreat fee of $525 includes lodging (multiple occupancy), your very own 5 ft crafting table, class instruction on your choice of "Road to Amish Country" - beginner quilt or Sew by Row by Lori Holt - intermediate quilt, goodie bags and delicious full breakfast all within the hotel premise. Lunch and most dinners are on your own. You can decide between cashing in your 10% discount for dinners at the Tavern, enjoy a short walk to several local restaurants, or drive over to one of the local Amish establishments (we all know that Amish country is all about the food right!?) One night we will be eating with an Amish Family, this too is included in your retreat fee.
The historic tin and brick walls of the sewing rooms will inspire your imagination no matter what time of day you care to wake up and start sewing! Cutting tables, ironing stations and plenty of plugs are provided. Fresh coffee, tea, water and sodas are located most hours of the day, just a few steps away. If the weather is right, the room can be opened to enjoy the fresh Fall air. The retreat rooms are handicapped accessible.
When you just can’t keep your eyes focused any longer, escape up the elevator to your room, turn down the covers, and slip into a luxurious bed and dream of scraps all night. The beautifully designed rooms sleep 1-3 guests. Let us know who you wish to room with, otherwise rooms with be assigned lottery style. Next morning, you’ll be fortified with a full breakfast in the Hotel Millersburg restaurant.
In the afternoon, feel free to drive through the rolling hills of Ohio to view the turning leaves, discover any of the 35 quilt/craft stores within easy driving distance, taste local vintages found at three vineyards close by, explore antiques stores next door or simply stay in the retreat rooms and sew the day and night away with your new quilting friends. This is YOUR vacation; do as you like.
The retreat opens at Noon on Wednesday and continues until Noon on Sunday (check out is NLT 3pm). Spend Wednesday sewing on your own project or cutting fabric for your class quilt. Retreat quilt instruction begins Thursday morning at 10am.
