Rob Appell

August 7 - 11, 2024

Hi, my name is Rob Appell. I’m a California native, and it shows—surfing, hiking, and playing the guitar are at the top of my list, when I’m not behind a sewing machine. I have an awesome, supportive family. My wife and two kids are the center of my world. I love teaching people to sew and I’m jazzed to share my passion with you! If you’re wondering how I got started quilting, it all began when I was working in my mother’s quilt shop. I caught the quilt pox and there was no cure! I taught myself to quilt and my personal style emerged. Quilted seascapes became my trademark. After a few years, I started designing fabric for Free Spirit. Not much later, I was designing quilts for Michael Miller’s new fabric releases too. After that I spent four years as the host of Missouri Star’s Man Sewing channel. Now I’m on to new adventures with Stitchin’ Heaven in Quitman, TX. I have a new Youtube Channel - Sew Well with Rob Appell. It’s been amazing to reach out to all of you and share my love of sewing and quilting. Thank you for being a part of this wild, creative journey!

Here's what our customers are saying about our Trips, Retreats, and More...

"Please don't hesitate you will have new friends from across the country for a life time. It is fun and regardless if you are an older beginner or an advance quilter you will learn and pass your experience on to others. You will not be disappointed. PS I am a shy person and relaxed and had a great time."

-Land Ahoy Orlando Traveler

"This is the first trip of this kind that I have taken and am already saving to take another! Our "bus moms" Sandra and Nancy were beyond great! The value of the experience, tours, acoomodations, etc. were well worth the price of the trip!."

-Linda A.

"For transitioning from cruising to land for a quilt retreat, Stitchin Heaven did an amazing job. There were lots of little gifts and surprises along the way. Chocolate was handed out when called for. The excursion to the fabric shop was lovely and the lunch they provided top notch. The trip to the Titanic Museum was one that I will not forget for a very long time."
