Are you a Quilt Pro looking for some quality sewing time with a splash of business thrown in?

Quilt Pro Retreat


September 29-October 1, 2023 - Friday to Sunday

Registration is closed...all filled up! 2024 dates will be announced in January 2024

This retreat is open to anyone who works in the quilting industry...pattern designers, quilt shop owners, long armers, quilting notion designers...

When was the last time you sewed for fun? Are you looking for some stretches of time to crank out some samples? There will be plenty of time for both! We'll also have round table discussions about things to help you create a better business - managing social media, affiliate programs, time management, accountability partners - or whatever the group decides they want to discuss and learn about.

No one understands our industry better than our peers. We can all learn from and support each other!

No thanks to Covid, we have not offered this retreat since 2018. It's so nice to have it back on the schedule!

Cancellation Policy

Purple Moose Designs reserves the right to cancel three weeks prior if there are not a minimum of 15 quilters registered. Full refunds would be issued. There will be no refunds if R&R is canceled due to circumstances beyond our control such as the weather or the moon crashing into the earth...stuff like that. If you should need to cancel your spot for any reason after the last deadline, your deposit will be forfeited unless your spot can be filled.

Have more questions?

For many of our instructors, we have to secure them 2-3 years in advance. Once we have an instructor we start taking names for the pre-registration list. It costs nothing to be on that list, just add your name and email. Once prices and class info are determined then that list gets the first crack at securing a spot in the class. If there are spaces left then it goes to our newsletter folks. Finally, it is offered to the general public.

Once you have been registered you will be invited to join our private online chat group. This makes it really easy for me to update you quickly and give you any needed information such as supply list, games, block swaps, etc. You can also get to know some of your other classmates.

If you would like to have a roomie but don't have a friend that can join you, we will do our best to hook you up with someone else in the same situation.

If you are flying in and would prefer to not bring your machine (or you're driving and just want to try a new one!) no worries. Machines are available for rent from Bittersweet Fabric Shop for a nominal fee. We make the arrangements for you.

We do have a guest teacher but the class is only one day. The rest of the time is free-sew to work on whatever you want. If you prefer to not do the class, that's just fine. More teacher time for the rest of us!

Well...I say don't choose, attend them all! If you attend any two or more of our retreats in any calendar year then you get $50 off each one. Is that cool or what?

Great to have space to spread out, lots of irons & cutting surfaces, ice water, snacks/candy/chocolate and super lighting.
