Winter Quiltfest
 

Below you will find an outline schedule of our annual Winter Quiltfest retreat. 

Plan to have a great time!

Many women look forward to Winter Quiltfest all year because they know it's a fun and relaxing time to do what they love. We think you'll enjoy getting away from day to day life for time to catch up with your friends and relatives while you work on some fabulous projects!  

 
 

Day 1

Check-in

Let the fun begin! You're welcome to come anytime, but a formal check-in time will be provided. The location of the event is Riverwoods Conference Center (and Spring Hills Suites) in beautiful Cache Valley (Logan, Utah). Don't worry, parking is free and there will be carts available to help with the loads. 

You made it! Now let your cares melt away and have a great time.

Each day we have a variety of classes. You'll need to register to attend a class. The class entrance fee is included in any of our package deals. All our teachers are experienced and so friendly! You will love learning from them and making new friends. Most of our teachers are locals from Utah.  

Morning Class (9:30 AM - 12:30 PM)

Start off your retreat with one of these fun projects! Click on a class for more information.

Lunch (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM)

We believe a good quilter runs on good fuel! The food is divine! Take a break between classes and enjoy a savory, catered meal. Take a look at some of our past culinary pleasures in our gallery from 2014

Afternoon Class (2:30 PM - 5:30 PM)

After lunch, it's back to what we love. As you can see, some classes are two parts. Click for more information.

Dinner (6:00 PM - 7:30 PM)

We don't just eat amazing food at dinner. We supplement it with great gifts too! Expect some creative and cute table favors as well as door prizes. After dessert, let's enjoy the evening starting with a "Make and Take" by My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe. Then the time is yours. Take a moment to view all the challenge quilts made by Quiltfest participants and cast your vote.

Tired from a long day of travel and quilting? Take a soothing dip in the hot tub before snuggling up in your cozy queen or king size bed. If you'd prefer, you are welcome to open sewing until midnight.

 

 

Thursday January 29, 2015

Get up whenever you want! Sleep in a bit so you'll be refreshed or get up early and head to the gym and pool for a nice pick-me-up. 

Morning Class (9:30 AM - 12:30 PM)

From the hotel, you can take the connected hallway over to the conference center. You won't even have to step out into the cold before you set up and get ready for some great instruction. Check out your class choices for Thursday morning below.

Lunch (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM)

You wont go hungry. In fact, you might feel like all you do is quilt and eat. We'll have a variety of foods throughout the retreat. Each meal, we'll have two main dish options for you to pick your favorite.

Afternoon Class (2:30 PM - 5:30 PM)

Every class is so worth the time and effort. Remember, you're not required to take a class during any of the slots, but you may regret it.

Dinner (6:00 PM - 7:30 PM)

Seriously, you will love the food choices. And don't worry, if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions, we accommodate. There is something delicious for everyone. 

During dinner we will enjoy a Trunk Show. 

Take the rest of the night to work on any projects during open sewing until midnight. Or maybe you'd like to get out and explore some of historic Logan city before hitting the sac.

 

 

Friday January 30, 2015

We always look forward to the last day of Quiltfest. Not only is there always something fun going on, but we also give out our best prizes.

These projects will be offered Friday morning.

Dinner and Goodbye (6:00 PM - 8:00 PM)

This will be a happening meal! Enjoy one last scrumptious meal; but before you go, let us fill your bags with wonderful gifts and prizes too.

During this final meal and goodbye party, we have a raffle for the "Candy Quilt" created by your Quiltfest hosts. The winner of the 2015 Challenge Quilt will be announced, and we'll also be pleased to give away the grand prize to those who show and share previous Quiltfest projects and enter the raffle. The grand prize will be a gift from the national teacher (to be announced!) of Winter Quiltfest 2016!

Our hope is that by the end you'll be exhausted from all the fun, yet ready to head back to your life with a joyful spirit and a few new spectacular quilts in your bags.
