Our 22nd Year!


For Twenty two years, we have been providing a luxurious and relaxing retreat full of comraderie, quilting, inspiring natural scenery and the services of a spa to quilters of all ages.


Our classes are diverse, and all levels of experience are welcome! Our retreat is scheduled with plenty of time to work on your project as well as to enjoy the numerous amenities offered at Deer Creek State Park, which is 20 miles outside of Columbus, Ohio.


We will soon be taking registrations for the 2014 Escape! Mark your calendar, call your friends, and get your fabric stash ready-- because we sold out in record time in 2013.


Since over half the attendance arrived on Thursday we have added a Meet and Greet “Fiesta Dinner Party” followed by additional Thursday classes to stretch your creativity!


Please note that the weekend classes are starting at 2:30p.m on Friday this year! Plan to come a night early so you can wake up and sew, or if arriving on Friday make plans to get there by 1:00p.m.!

We are going to focus on Pink fabrics with accent colors of black and gray so you can use any combination of pink, gray and black fabrics that best represent the theme for you.
