You asked and we listened!

Stitchin' Heaven is a quilt shop for quilters by quilters. We know and understand how important it is that we listen to our customers. You asked for a beautiful space to come and enjoy your quilting friends, learn new quilting techniques, and enjoy the quiet life in the country. We listened, and we have provided The Retreat Center and The Cottages, just for YOU!

We are now accepting reservations at this beautiful facility. Coming with a group of up to 24 friends? Book The Retreat Center. Need a place for a small group? Consider one of The Cottages. Either way, let us accommodate you!

We also offer retreats designed by Stitchin' Heaven that feature some of the top personalities in the quilting industry. Browse through our selection and see if there is one that interests you and plan to join us!

You will have full access to our quilt shop during your stay - walk across the parking lot! We hope we have thought of everything you need to have an incredible experience at Stitchin' Heaven.
