November 9-11, 2018

Laurel Wilbur and Madonna Terlizzi started quilting retreats at Purity Spring Resort 14 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 third unique sewing weekend.

Our Sewing Sampler Weekend 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 and 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 2018 Project: 

Madonna will be conducting various demonstrations.

1. String Quilting: What the technique is and how to do it. A project will be offered that can be made with the pieces.

2. Demo using a chenille cutter: What the cutter does and how to use it to make a pot holder or hot pad with 10” squares.

3. Demo using cookie cutters as quilt stencils: Demonstration making the mug rug and how to get the stencil on there. Madonna will be bringing kits to sell, as usual. 

Quilters are encouraged to bring any supplies that they have purchased over the years that they are interested in learning how to use. You can reach Madonna at

Laurel Wilbur will be teaching us how to  make a Scrap Quilt using 60 degree ruler. Additional details will be mailed to everyone who is signed up for this weekend. You can reach Laurel at 508-248-0600 with any questions.
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.
