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 2016 will be our ninth 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 $499, and a single is $599, for 3 nights and 4 days, Friday, March 10, until Monday, March 13, 2017. The retreat will start at noon on Friday and finish at 4 p.m. on Monday afternoon. This price includes all meals, starting with Friday lunch and ending with Monday 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. The balance will be due no later than February 1, 2017. We also have a lay-away option that many people take advantage of to help you budget your payments. We limit the number of attendees to 40 maximum, and seats sell out fast. We encourage you to call us at 508-520-0234 today to reserve your spot.
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., 5-time 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., 5-time attendee
