Everything Taken Care Of

The Creative Retreat is a dedicated space where all the details, including delicious meals, are all taken care of. Designed by a hands-on creative, there’s nothing for you to do other than relax and make – you can make from morning to midnight, if you choose.

For the current series of retreats, quilting is our focus. We hand-select tutors who have the unique ability to gently guide and inspire you to develop and execute your very own quilt design.

The Retreats

The retreats are in inspiring locations and allow you to completely escape your everyday life. Immerse yourself completely in the creative process in the company of like-minded creatives.

Classes run from 10-4 each day but the space is available for you to continue sewing long after class concludes, without a care in the world, just focusing on your craft.

Don't miss a thing!

The Tutors

Cheryl April 2014 Headshot smallOur very first at The Creative Retreat was the super inspiring Cheryl Arkison followed by Carolyn Friedlander.

Participants at both retreats enjoyed a truly intimate and inspiring sewing experience and completed some incredible designs throughout the retreats – from novice beginners right through to the most accomplished quilters, everyone walked away with a new quilting achievement.

New retreat and tutor announcements will be made soon.
