Registration NOW OPEN for our Open Craft Retreat!! + Packing Tips from 2 artists!

We are so excited to announce that registration is open for our Open Craft Retreat!

Sign up for this retreat and enjoy a 4 day/3 night getaway at our beautiful 1880s southern estate and craft with us. Make new friends, relax, and finish those projects!

Who this retreat is for: If you are crafty or creative, you belong here! You will be surrounded by an awesome group of women, varying in age & crafting style. You'll meet quilters, painters, writers, weavers, and more. We would love for you to join us!

What is an "Open" craft retreat? An Open Craft Retreat is a getaway with a creative setting. There are no set classes or techniques, no agenda. Just bring your projects & your supplies, we have plenty of room, and enjoy what you love to do. Enjoy the process. You can craft in our retreat room for as long or as little as you like each day. You are welcome to enjoy the amenities of our small town as well. Shop, eat, walk along the lake, enjoy the historic homes & buildings, or even drive to the beach.

We have private rooms, shared rooms, and day passes available. Payment plans available too! SIGN UP HERE:

Katie's Tips as an Art Journaler:

  • Bring the basics & stick to what you use the most! If you're an art journaler, that might be your sketchbook, watercolors, markers, pens & pencils.

  • Pack 1-3 extras for fun supplies. This could be something new you haven't opened, or a blank journal/canvas, or that fabric you bought but can't bring yourself to cut yet.


Tabatha's Tips as a Quilter:

  • Look on Pinterest for packing lists! There are easy to find lists for every type of crafting, so don't reinvent the wheel. Find a packing list that works for you!

  • Pack extras of key supplies: extra needles, rotary cutter blades, etc. You can't keep quilting if you bend a needle and it's the only one you have!

  • Bring your favorite snacks!
