Annual Quilting Retreat 

Every year, we host a quilting retreat on the second weekend of March at the Hyannis Conference Resort and Hotel in Hyannis, Massachusetts.  March 2020 will be our 13th year, and many of participants have been coming for years.  This is a 4-day retreat for quilters who truly want to get away from everything and enjoy a full weekend of pampering and sewing. 
 

The price for a double is $559, and a single is $659, for 3 nights and 4 days, Saturday, March 14, until Tuesday, March 172, 2018. The retreat will start at noon on Saturday and finish at 4 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.  This price includes all meals, starting with Saturday dinner and ending with Tuesday morning breakfast, as well as a class workshop, a mystery quilt, and other gifts and activities. 

If you are interested in attending, we require a $75 deposit to reserve your spot.  Please note that any deposits cancelled after November 1, 2018, will be forfeited.  The balance will be due no later than February 10, 2020.  We also have a lay-away option that many people take advantage of to help you budget your payments over the course of the year.  Registration for all new participants opens on June 1.  We encourage you to call us at  508-520-0234 on this date to reserve your spot as this is a very popular event and we do sell out.  

Testimonials from past attendees


"What a wonderful weekend. I've attended other retreats and decided Emma's is the best. I like the variety of classes and activities. The people are great. I've made lasting friendships and see my fellow retreaters at the store and outside. If you had to pick only one retreat a year, Emma's is the one to choose."  Cheryl M., 10-year attendee

"The quilt retreat is a "bargain!"  You not only get a long weekend away doing your favorite thing, you spend time with friends, meet new friends, get an opportunity to quilt with the experts, get great tips, and also have the ability to take classes.  I don't have to make a bed, do laundry, wash a dish, or cook!  It's all done for me.  What a treat!  The BEST 4 days of the year."  Joanne K., 6-time attendee

"I look forward to the quilting retreat to be able to sew uninterrupted...I enjoy the company of good friends who share the same interest...I like to see the projects people bring to work on and am amazed at how much they get accomplished on the weekend...the sewing room is awesome, the accommodations are excellent, the food is delicious, and the company is great fun! Time goes by much too quickly!  I look forward to it every year."   Cathy B., 12-year attendee.
