November 9-11, 2018

Laurel Wilbur & Madonna Terlizzi started quilting retreats at Purity Spring Resort over 12 years ago with a small group of ladies. These gatherings have grown to full week retreats and new weekends. Since our fall Mystery Quilt weekend and Quilt Workshop weekend have been in high demand, we have decided to introduce a 3rd unique sewing weekend.

Our new weekend is aptly called the Sewing Sampler Weekend and will include a variety of workshops. The workshops will be a mix of quick projects and opportunities to learn new skills. We always recommend that you bring your unfinished projects from home. You will be amazed at all you will learn & accomplish. The sky is the limit for what projects you decide to work on. Bring a variety of projects and get a head start on those Christmas gifts. 

Fall 2016 Project Details:

Madonna will be conducting various demonstrations. Quilters are encouraged to bring any supplies that they have purchased over the years that they are interested in learning how to use. She will be working with fabric paints, stamping, on fabric, oil sticks, permanent inks, beading, hand embroidery stitches and use of various fibers to enhance your projects. You can reach Madonna at
Laurel Wilbur will be teaching us how to make an attic window quilt using a panel. She will also be showing us how to make rope bowls. You can reach Laurel at 508-248-0600 with any questions. Please contact  Laurie Campbell at if you have not received information on these projects and the mystery quilt fabric requirements through the USPS mail.
Madonna & Laurel will also have smaller projects available and details on those projects will be sent out soon.
We are participating in the Million Pillowcase Challenge and making pillowcases for CHaD (Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth) AND patriotic pillowcases to accompany Quilts of Valor.

This crafty weekend is limited to 30 participants, so that each person has plenty of work space at their very own 4x6ft wooden table. Laurel & Madonna do not look very old and between the 2 of them, have over 100 years of sewing experience!
