Have you been dabbling with the idea of hosting your own quilting retreat?
They can be such a fun way to make new quilty friends and try something new, but how do you plan a quilt retreat?
We will discuss this topic in FULL in the post and go over all the nitty gritty details so you can feel confident when you go to host your first or next quilting retreat with ease.
What Is a Quilt Retreat?
Before we jump into any details, let’s go over the basics. A quilt retreat is a gathering of quilters to sew, learn, and fellowship together. The quilters can have varying skill levels, or you can specify a specific skill level for your attendees.
Also, you can choose a specific quilt pattern that everyone sews, or you can have everyone pick their pattern. Often, the importance isn’t the actual quilt pattern or project that everyone is working on, but the friendships and connections created when quilters get together and share their love for the craft.
A quilt retreat can be a few hours or several days. That will heavily depend on your attendees’ schedules and what you would like to commit to. We’ll discuss this more later in this post.
