Only 1 1/2 weeks to go! I am getting SO Sew excited! Lots of goodies await all retreaters.


Best of all, we will have lots of fun with fellow quilting enthusiasts. Some may be beginners and some experts – doesn’t matter! We all learn from and enjoy each other.

2018 Openings and registrations will be posted when they become available. Leave a comment with your contact info, or email at: heartscreations@outlook.com.

2018 Retreats

Fall I and Fall II 2017 are now full. You may be added to the wait list.

I – November 5 thru 8      II – November 8 thru 11




Great way to treat yourself to hours of uninterrupted sewing, finish UFO’s, bond with other quilters/sewers, swap tips and tricks, and have fun!  Lots of prizes to win!

Blowing Rock is beautiful.  Nestled in the North Carolina mountains, it offers crisp, clean air, beautiful scenery, great shops and restaurants.  The Meadowbrook Inn is on Main Street – everything is in walking distance.  Just down  the road is Boone where you may take a fun trip to two great quilt shops (offering us a discount). There is now a quilt shop in Blowing Rock that offers the retreat a discount and also a yarn shop in downtown Blowing Rock and yes – a discount there too! The Inn has lovely remodeled guest rooms.

Join me for days of fun doing what we all SEW enjoy doing!

Great Christmas or Birthday Gift!

Rooms at Meadowbrook Inn include hot breakfast. Participants responsible for making their own room reservations. 800-456-5456

A GREAT big thank you to our sponsors.

Lots of excitement, lots of prizes!!

  1. I can’t wait for April! I had a blast last year. This is now my annual birthday gift from my daughter and I love it! Please save my spot. 🙂

  2. Hi, This sounds like a lot of fun! Do you have an itinerary from a past retreat to look at so I have an idea of what to expect. I’m interested in the activites we would be doing. Will it be all quilting or a little bit of everything. Also, we there be projects for us to do or do we bring everything we want to do?

    Thank you!

      It is fun! It is a very simple itinerary. We begin with brief introductions and play a few games throughout the weekend for some awesome prizes. Weather permitting, a welcome reception on the terrace Thursday evening. There is a charity block you may choose to work on (fabric and pattern supplied), put your name into a drawing for a prize. Optional dinner out on Friday night at a local restaurant, Dutch treat. Optional Friday trip to Boone to 2 quilt shops offering discounts or you may go a time of your choosing. Saturday night show and tell – either what you have been working on that weekend or something from home that you really want to share. Everyone brings their own projects to work on. I do send out a suggested supply and tool list to all have registered. Would love for you to join the fun!

  3. Never been on a quilting retreat but would love to go to this one!! Do people come by themselves or is it mostly people that already know each other?? And of course the cost?

  4. Can I attend without needing a room. We have a cabin in the area that I can stay in.

    Is there a waiting list available in case any spots come open. Just found this site and I’m looking for a quilt retreats for this year.

    • heartsdesireretreats

      Yes, I am keeping a waiting list. You never know if closer to the retreat there is a cancellation. I wish I could squeeze a few more in, but just not possible. I will add you. If no luck this year, be sure to check for next year’s retreat announcement, or become a follower and see as soon as it is posted. Thank you for your inquiry!

  6. Oh no! Is it really full? I thought there would plenty of time. 😦 Please put me on the waiting list. I have some friends wanting to come too. I’ll have them get on the waiting list too.

  7. Thank you!

  8. Martie H Weatherman
