Quilt Retreats

AlbertaBritish ColumbiaOntario

Canada is a wonderful place for Canadian quilt retreats no matter which province or territory you choose. Every part of the country is breathtaking and the locals are always friendly. See what each province has to offer and decide which will suit you and your friends best for your quilting retreat!

Some places may be located near your home; however, if you want to travel further afield and/or take quilt classes from teachers not normally available in your area, you may find a place of interest on this website.

If you want to take your significant other along on your quilting vacation, consider retreat areas where there are additional activities for your partner, such as fishing, hiking, sightseeing or shopping.

Most Canadian quilt retreats do not include travel expenses. You will need to arrange this on your own. Always ask whether you need to bring your sewing machine or whether there are machines available at the facility. In addition, ask for supply lists ahead of time just in case stores and resources aren’t close at hand for vacation shopping. Remember to find out if food and beverages are included and whether or not you need to bring bedding and towels. Some camps and retreats can be rustic, but most will have all the little details taken care of.

Also listed are Canadian quilt retreats that can be custom-designed for your special group of friends. Make a plan with your favourite quilters, choose a location and start counting down the sleeps until you escape!

Make sure the Canadian quilt retreats you escape to meet your needs! Do you want to spend the entire time quilting… or do you want to do some sight-seeing or walking as well? Do you want to work on an individual project or are you interested in a collaborated one? Do you want to learn new skills, or improve on the ones you already love? There will be a retreat or camp to suit you exactly, just make sure you pick the one that most interests you!
