Hello from rural Wisconsin...

Homestead Retreat is a Quilter and Artists Getaway in the rolling hills of Sauk County, Wisconsin.  Join us for a relaxing weekend of fun and sharing in a spacious retreat center and rustic log cabin in the woods.  Start a new project or complete old ones.  Relax on the large deck, enjoying nature and inspiration.  Homestead Retreat can accommodate large groups up to 17 or multiple small groups.  Bring your friends or come alone and make some more.  Share your experience and love of fabric art.  Artists of all kinds enjoy a large workspace with natural lighting surrounded by the beauty and peace of the woods.  


On a personal note, 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.


I look forward to meeting returning quilters and artists of types and welcome you to experience the creative atmosphere found at the Homestead Retreat.

Update:  As a continuing response to the pandemic, please note that the practice of not "cross booking" smaller groups will be followed in 2022. In the booking calendar "Booked" means that only your group will be coming.  Even though there is space, the decision to not "cross book" smaller groups to a weekend is in response to the continuing Covid pandemic and is a temporary practice.  If you have any questions about who will be at the Retreat on the weekend, please feel free to call or email me to clarify your weekend.  

Effective Jan 1, 2022: Minimum group size to book a new weekend is five (5). 

​Effective Jan 1, 2023: All weekends will be opened up to multiple small group reservations with a suggested limit of 12 guests total from multiple groups or individuals.  Single groups of 12 or more guests will not have additional groups or individuals added.
