Upcoming Retreats

Northumberland Retreat with Brigitte Giblin
SOLD OUT - waitlist accepted
An incredible quilting adventure! 
August 31 - September 7, 2019  

Join our exciting and inaugural luxury retreat adventure in the English Countryside near the breathtaking Northumberland Coast.  We will spend 7 days at the beautiful Doxford Hall Hotel and Spa, a 200 year old country mansion which has been lovingly restored to retain the grand sense of residence for which it was built.

In addition to the workshop offered by Brigitte, Christopher and Deb have planned exciting tours and visits in the area which will help you learn about and appreciate the quilt history here.

Sitges Retreat with Gillian Travis
1 space remains
Quilting and pampering in the most beautiful part of Spain
March 10 - 18, 2020

Sitges is a charming historical old town on the Mediterranean Coast, located in the province of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain.  The town enjoys four kilometres of beach along a delightful sea-front promenade featuring turn of the 20th century colonial "Indiano" mansions on one side and the sea on the other, making it wonderfully inspirational for our retreat adventures here.  

Our guests will stay in the deluxe Casa Felix, a restored 11th century country house just in the hills above Sitges at the village of Olivella. Here, we've planned amazing workshops  and activities to make your trip to Spain one you will never forget.
