Quilting At Thunder Bay Resort

Check in at noon on Thursday and be greeted by the warm and friendly staff at Thunder Bay Resort.  Set your sewing station up, introduce yourself to fellow retreaters, check out the onsite vendors and get your sewing machine revved up!  In the evening, a delicious buffet dinner will be served followed by a lively show-and-tell to break the ice and set the pace for the retreat.

Friday morning, start your day off with a hearty breakfast and get geared up for a full day of sewing.  It is time to dig out some of those projects you brought along to finish or maybe even start something new.  There will be demonstrations and project ideas.  In the late afternoon, sip some locally made wine and visit with your new quilting friends.

After another fabulously hearty breakfast on Saturday morning, it's back to the Pine Cone Quarters ("Quilt Barn") for more quilting excitement!  Fire up your sewing machine and get busy completing some of those UFO's that have been taking up space in your mind and sewing studio.  You can also visit with the onsite vendors, share ideas with fellow retreaters or just soak up all of the energy and inspiration in the Quilt Barn.  As an added feature, you may choose to end your day with the resort's famed Elk Viewing, Carriage Ride, Gourmet Dinner and Wine Tasting Event!  For those not attending the event, dinner is available for purchase in the Clubhouse Grill.

On Sunday, join your fellow quilters for a final, homemade breakfast followed by a trunk show and sharing of the projects you completed during the retreat.  Dedicated quilters are welcome back at Pine Cone Quarters for more quilting while those with long drives can leave at their convenience.

Prize drawings and surprises will be offered throughout the retreat.

If you haven't been to a retreat, this is the place to go!  If you have been to a retreat and have been disappointed, then you've been to the wrong retreat and this is also the place to go! -Mark Lipinski, The Bad Boy of Quilting

The facilities and the meals were wonderful!  This was my first retreat and I think other retreats will have a very difficult time - if not impossible - time meeting this standard!  I will definitely be back for another retreat at Thunder Bay Resort!  -Teri S., Huber Heights, Ohio

I am STILL reliving the fun we had with Amy Davidson!  Your trunk show was awesome and inspiring motivating me to touch fabric everyday!  -Barbara S., Howell, MI

This really is the perfect quilter's retreat!  Everything convenient and handy to quilt, knowledgeable teachers, comfortable, clean lodging and friendly staff.  I'll be back! -Susan H., Traverse City, MI

Warm hospitality, delicious food, a beautiful setting and the opportunity to make new friends.  We sincerely loved every moment of our time here and look forward for our next retreat!  -Brian S., Lafayette, IN
