KT & Friends II - Hamilton, MO

KT & Friends Retreat II

Have you heard? I'm throwing a party with two of my favorite designer friends - actually three - Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co, and Barb & Mary of Me & My Sister Designs. They're three of the most innovative and energetic ladies I know. And you're invited!

The first ever KT & Friends Retreat is June 19-22, 2019, at the home of Kansas Troubles Quilters in Bennington, Kansas. We're sold out for June 2019, but contact our Retreat Coordinator below to be on our email list for info on future events.

While at Fall Market in Houston last October, I shared the good news about the June retreat selling out in a matter of weeks with my three designer friends, and they unanimously said, "Let's do another one!" In brainstorming ideas for venues, Jenny suggested coming to her hometown of Hamilton, Missouri where all the magic of Missouri Star Quilt Company happens. After coordinating our calendars (which was something of a miracle), we settled on October 2-5, 2019 for a second retreat this year.

Our 3-day retreat will be held at the new Hamilton Inn and Retreat Center. You'll enjoy a new state-of-the-art quilting space with individual sewing tables, irons & cutting mats for every 8 quilters, and great lighting. In addition, each designer will teach a lap quilt and a small project, plus share their quilts and stories in a trunk show. All fabric, thread and patterns for workshops are provided, plus lots of goodies. Continental breakfast & evening meals are included; lunch on your own. Retreat cost is $695 per quilter. Lodging is available in Hamilton at an additional cost. See our registration form HERE.

For more information, contact Kathy Limpic, Retreat Coordinator at or call 816-377-9699.
