We can accommodate 16 people. You will find all the comforts of home in the retreat. It is beautifully decorated and each bed is dressed with an antique quilt.
The kitchen is fully functional with pots, pans, dishes and silverware, everything you need to prepare and serve a meal. The bathrooms are complete with soap, shampoo, hairdryer and other toiletries.
The large sewing room is complete with sewing tables, cutting table, irons and ironing boards. It also has great natural light. Mary's Quilt shop is located in the same building and is complete with all your sewing needs.
The retreat is located in charming downtown Bedford. There are many great restaurants and shops for your enjoyment. Bring your family and friends for a pleasant getaway of sewing, eating and enjoying historic Bedford. We can design a class for you or come and sew on your own.

Thank You to all of our loyal retreaters!

Ryan's Case for Smiles is dedicated to helping children with life-changing illnesses feel better to heal better.
We are a charitable organization that makes pillowcases for children with life threating illnesses.
Your participation in this outreach is encouraged. We have local groups that gather and sew. If you don't sew we need cutters and other helpers. You can also make the pillow cases on your own and drop them off at the shop.
Please contact Doris Caldwell for more information.
1,500,000 (and counting!)
are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can't be worn for weeks after surgery.
Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and
feel of a real breast.
Our special volunteer knitters provide these free to those requesting them.
Join in to help connect volunteer knitters with breast cancer survivors to offer free Knitted Knockers to any woman who wants them.
There is a huge demand for Knitted Knockers that can't be met by any one group but together we can do it! If someone in each area will set a goal of meeting the need in just their county it can happen!
