“I get so relaxed I don't know what the date is and I don't even care. I love the Nun's room and the showers are great. It was good to come "home" and see both of you."

Guest Comments

I am Patsy and I have been sewing since the age of 9 years old, thanks to 4-H and my Mom. In 1981 I took my first quilting class and have been hooked ever since. The second quilt I made was even selected as an entry into the State Historical Society's quilt show. In 1997 I realized I couldn't possibly had quilt all the quilt tops I wanted to make, so I bought a big quilting machine made by A-1 Quilting in Springfield, MO.

Though I no longer quilt for others, I have turned my passion into pampering guests who come to the retreat for relaxation and creativity.

“Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful place for us to gather. The fellowship is as important as the sewing!"
