Welcome to our All-Inclusive Getaways

Looking for a little break from the grind? Join us for ALL-INCLUSIVE weekend quilting getaway at Lake Gaston. Cabin Quilters hosts a 3-night quilting retreat at the beautiful Retreat at Lake Gaston center in Bracey, VA.  This retreat center is fully equipped for quilters.  Just bring your sewing machine and your latest project and we will provide the rest.  Accommodations based on double occupancy. All rooms have a sunset view of Lake Gaston. Price includes room, all meals and snacks, wine and cheese mixer on check in day, project kit and plenty of goodies. Our goal is that you don’t have to lift a finger to do anything but sew while you are here.

The retreat is all about you.  We want to pamper you while you are here so there is no need to concern yourself with making meals.  Bring your UFOs and work on your own project or work on our project kit while you are here. Need a break from quilting? No worries… there is plenty of quiet deck space to enjoy a great book or stroll down the path to the take in the sunset from the boathouse upper deck.  Catch site of some otters, osprey or heron while you sew one of your oldest UFOs.  Catch up with friends or make some new ones.  

A mini pop up quilt shop is provided by Cary Quilting and Cabin in the Woods Quilters, or you can opt for a trip to Sherry’s Sew What, our local quilt shop in Henrico NC. CabinQuilters can also provide a full quilt kit for you to work on while attending. Reach out directly for details. A group project, kit and instruction are included. It is your choice to participate.
