Our 24th Year!


For Twenty four 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 this year's Escape! Mark your calendar, call your friends, and get your fabric stash ready-- because we sold out in record time last year.


We hope you will join us for some fun and games at the "Thursday Throwback" dinner party. Tickets may be purchased at time of registration. For more details about the dinner, see our events page.


Please note that the weekend classes are starting at 2:30p.m on Friday and the classrooms will be open all day on Friday to set up your equipment and work on your projects until class starts. 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.!
