“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."

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.  

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 artists of types and welcome you to experience the creative atmosphere found at the Homestead Retreat.
