Homestead  Retreat

(formerly Homestead  Cabin Retreat)

Gift Certificates

My name is Shelly and I am so excited to continue the Retreat that Patsy established.   I will post a picture of myself as soon as I get one uploaded.  Patsy and I have been working on this transition for most of the summer and finally completed it in October.  

I am new to quilting and look forward to being initiated into the "Sisterhood of Quilters".  My artistic outlet has been mostly in clay, but I have always drawn, painted or crafted my way through life.  Art, in all it's mediums, has been an outlet for me and a place of peace.

Please bear with me while I gain my footing.  I am not making any changes at this time so continue to plan your weekend as you have in the past. ​

I look forward to meeting returning quilters and welcome everyone new to the Homestead Retreat.

“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."

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