Frequently Asked Questions

How does registration work?

Beginning soon priority registration is opened. During this time anyone can register with a package. (Lucky you, packages are the best value anyway.) In early September or October, a la carte registration opens so anyone can build their own retreat, or come for just part. 

What's the easiest and fastest way to register?

Signing up for a package is the easiest way to come to Winter Quiltfest. Simply click on "Register Now" at the top right of the website and follow the instructions. 

Why is registration beginning in Summer?

Because we love you! Priority registration ensures you have a reserved spot at Winter Quiltfest and also first priority on class selection. Because class sizes are limited, we fill them on a first come, first serve basis. Priority registration is really the way to go. It's a great value for a great retreat!

What if I can't make it to the whole retreat?

That's okay; we have an a la carte option as well. This is available each year in September or October. We always announce the date on our Facebook page and to our email list. Click on "Register Now" in the top right or go to the "Quilt Store" to begin your retreat creation.

I really want to attend The Evening trunk shows. How do I get in?

If you registered for any of our full-service retreats, you're in! Access to evening dinners and trunk shows are included in the package deals. Otherwise, you'll need to go to our Quilt Store and click on "Dinner/Evening Activity" option. The trunk shows are included in the dinner's price. They come bundled together. Each meal also includes a table favor from one of our sponsors, and an opportunity to win other fabulous prizes. 

I'm coming from pretty far out of town. Can I come Early or Stay longer with friends?

You sure can! We would be delighted to take care of your hotel reservations and ensure that you will be in the same hotel room throughout. Simply click here to add extra nights.

Can I bring a friend or relative who isn't a quilter?

We'd love to have them! When you register, sign up for a package with a private room, which covers the full cost of the hotel room. You may also want to include your quilt companion at meal time. To do this, head to our a la carte and select the desired meals. 

What is Winter Quiltfest?

Glad you asked. Winter Quiltfest is an annual winter quilting retreat enjoyed in peaceful Cache Valley, Utah. Quilters adore this weekend escape in comfort and style while they do exactly what they love—quilting. Our guests are kind and hospitable, quick learners, and fun to be around. They report a 92 percent level of satisfaction with the classes, hotel, and food. As a result, the vast majority of our guests continue to return year after year. We take pride in our retreat, and we especially love when others enjoy it too.

Why should I look at classes before going to Registration?

Update coming in 2016.

Note: class information is unavailable during priority registration. I guess you'll just have to trust us to select wonderful classes!

The class I wanted is full. What do I do?

Unfortunately, some fun classes will fill up quickly. We encourage you to contact us to be placed on that class's waiting list. We cannot guarantee you will be admitted to the class, but each year, we do receive a few cancellations, freeing up space. If a class is really popular it is possible it will be repeated, and you will be notified. Otherwise, you may enjoy another class during that time. Remember to register during priority registration next year to receive first choice of classes.

Two of the classes I really want to take are during the same time slot. Can I take both of them?

Unfortunately, no. Each time slot has between three and four classes happening at the same time. You will only be able to take one during each time. If you accidentally signed up for more than one class during a single time slot, let us know here and we'll refund you.

How much does it cost?

Packages offer everything at a reduced price. They range from the low $400s to the low $700s, depending on your hotel needs. If you prefer to build your own retreat, you can choose from the a la carte options, which offer convenience and personalization at a slightly higher cost per item.

Can I make Changes to my Class choices after registration?

You sure can! Simply send us an email ( with your changes.
