Dorian P. from Palatine, IL

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

My name is Shelly and I am so excited to continue the Retreat that Patsy established.

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.

I look forward to meeting returning quilters and welcome you to experience the creative atmosphere found at 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."

Dawn S. from Cary, IL

“What a wonderful gift this weekend has been, not only the quilting but the fellowship and peace of this place. I will be back again!"
