With Oak Haven arriving in September, Robert's trying to make space in the storage room for dozens of bolts of new fabric and precuts. Oak Haven will blend beautifully with Sunflower Song, so it's a great time to add to your autumn stash.

KT Retreats

It's been a while since I shared much about our KT Retreats. The ladies that stayed with us last weekend asked for more information to be posted on my blog and website. Here's what you need to know about KT Retreats:

We provide continental breakfast, coffee, tea. Your group is welcome to bring food to prepare meals or visit the local eateries for deli sandwiches, farmer style dinners or ice cream parlor treats.

Our harvest table seats 18.

Kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook for your quilting friends.
Fun decor throughout makes our retreat space your home away from home.

Our gathering space offers comfy seating for hand stitching or TV watching.
The sewing area offers a 6-ft table, adjustable computer chairs and lighting for each quilter, plus cutting mats on raised tables and 3 irons/ironing boards for your convenience. 

Downstairs, the KT Quilt Shop is open Tues-Saturday for your shopping enjoyment. If I'm in town and available, I'll stop in for a tour of the shop and presentation of my layered patchwork technique. Robert and Jamie can help with any of your KT questions.

We still have a limited number of openings for 2017. Our 2018 schedule will open later this year. Grab a few friends and make plans to visit us soon!

  6. OMG, I have been wanting to schedule a retreat at your lovely place. Where is your calendar? Do I need to call? Happy Happy dance!

  7. A KTQ retreat sound like heaven. Been a year of care giving: November a replaced knee, and May the same leg got broken so sewing/quilting has given way to the real world. Our Motto: Do Not Break a Leg, and Do Not ever say Maybe Now our Life can get back to Normal!
    Thank you for all you do.

  8. Do you have open retreats for parties of less than 8 where groups of less than 8 could make up a group? For example if I have 4 people and another group has 4 we could come together and make new friends? Just wondering because I would love to come but I don't think I can come up with 7 other people to join me.

  9. Lynne,
    It was a pleasure to meet you tonight in San Diego at the Jenny Doan trunk show. I LOVE all your KT fabric!
