Quilted Adventure Retreat is a Celebration of Fabric techniques for enthusiasts at all skill levels - beginner and beyond.

On the surface? It’s about learning new techniques and projects to spice up your sewing skills.

But really? It’s about connection, community, and honoring the creativity in all of us.

It’s designed for people who love to create and meet kindred spirits, and want to immerse themselves in learning  without breaking the bank or leaving family and work obligations behind.

By the end of the year long adventure in exploring media, techniques, and projects, you will…

  • learn to surrender any fears you have about investing time and money in yourself because your creativity matters!
  • connect with like-minded kindred spirits all over the world and make new friends
  • create unique keepsakes you will treasure forever as mementos of your remarkable artistic journey
  • meet and learn from some of the finest experienced teachers all in one place
  • grow and fine-tune your skills and knowledge and learn what tools and supplies you can use to create your own style

And best of all, you’ll have the experience of a lifetime!

Let this be the year you finally invest in You!

Grab your clay, tools, and computer, and get ready to celebrate!


We want to live in a world where inspiration is unlimited and where we share with others in an effort to increase everyone's knowledge, fun, and skill.

We are so tired of obstacles getting in the way of our creative explorations...

  • Fears and scarcity related to time and money...
  • Forgetting what you learn after leaving a classroom...
  • Access to teachers to ask questions as you are experimenting and learning...
  • Leaving your kids, pets, and significant others at home and out of the experience...
  • That the cost of travel has become so prohibitive, never mind the cost to hire someone to care for those left-behind kids, pets and houses...

We want you to have the Retreat Experience you always dreamed of!

A new innovative way for everyone, everywhere in the world to experience the fun!

We're so thrilled that we gathered up 12 delightful and passionate teachers who are  gifted and experienced. We picked Vanessa as our Retreat Host because she is awesome - and your two Community Hosts Ilysa and Kira will always be available. They have hosted this type of event before and have been podcasting and videocasting for over 8 years. Kira has a degree in Art Education, and Ilysa has traveled the country selling her art and winning contests. You are in good hands.

We've made sure that the lessons they are preparing are varied, informative and that you will learn something different and unique from each and every teacher.

It's about honoring you- because Your Creativity Matters. Learning new things is exciting and fun- and doing it in an enjoyable way is important. Also, there's going to be loads of online antics, probably with cookies and possibly wine, and in our pj's.

Right now, we want you to claim a seat in this Virtual Quilting Retreat. We're unlocking access to a worldwide collection of teachers, bridging the gaps between distance and locations, and bringing us all together for one amazing knock-your-socks off affordable experience.



With all our Love and Kind Regards...See you on the incredible Journey!
