If you are interested in joining us for a relaxing week of quilting but do not wish to register for one of our workshops, you may opt to attend as an independent study. We have set aside one of the suites at the Inn for a limited number of attendees to gather together and work on their own projects. The rate is $1149.00 per person and includes single accommodations (five nights lodging at the Valley Inn); all meals beginning with dinner on Sunday and concluding with lunch on Friday; and access to the evening events with our instructors. $50 discount is not available for this rate.


Rates are $1449.00 per person for shared accommodations (five nights lodging at the Valley Inn or Silver Fox Inn); all meals beginning with dinner on Sunday and concluding with lunch on Friday; and workshop with one instructor. Single accommodations available for an additional $300.00 ($1749.00 total.) A non-participating spouse/partner/companion may join you in your single room (includes all meals and access to evening activities) for an additional fee of $300 ($2049.00 total.) Pay your balance by check and receive a $50 discount. A day student rate of $675.00 is available as a 'workshop-only' option; meals and accommodations are not provided at this rate. $50 discount is not available for the day-student rate.


Students may begin setup of work stations after 2 p.m. on Sunday.

On Friday, there is a "wrap-up" morning session from 9 to 11 a.m., followed by classroom cleanup and farewell lunch at noon. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 9 a.m. daily. Each evening, a member of our faculty will give an informal presentation of their work in their classroom for all attendees.


The Valley Inn provides the perfect setting for a relaxing week spent creating and exploring new techniques. Our limited class enrollment numbers assure each student receives individual attention.
