In the Quiltstock Retreat Facebook Group (which you can join as soon as you sign up for the retreat), quilters are getting particularly excited about one revelation:

If you wish!

We’re also ready to tell you a little bit more about the classes you’ll be taking—and the four all-star designers who’ll be teaching you!

Lisa Bongean, the creator of the gorgeous A Quilter’s Journal (do you have yours yet?), is a designer for Moda Fabrics and the owner of two Primitive Gatherings quilt shops (one in Wisconsin and the other in California). She creates patterns and kits, teaches at numerous quilt shows, and has contributed to several Martingale books (most recently Moda All-Stars: Mini-Charm Quilts). Learn more about Lisa at and more about her quilt shops at With Lisa, you’ll be making her sweet Forever Friends quilt from Moda All-Stars: Lucky Charm Quilts.

Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson are sisters, quilt designers, and co-owners of Me and My Sister Designs. They’ve written six books with Martingale and designed several fabric lines for Moda Fabrics. They’re always a riot and we know you’ll love their humor and energy! Learn more about Barb and Mary at They’ll be teaching you how to make the Flower Power quilt from Easy Layer-Cake Quilts at the retreat.

Carrie Nelson is the best-selling author of Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites and the “Schnibbles” series of books. She’s also the former owner of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company and the social-media guru at Moda, where she’s known for her touching and humorous storytelling. She’s got tons of piecing tricks up her sleeves! You’ll be making Carrie’s star-studded Opening Day quilt at the retreat. You can find Carrie on Instagram at @justcarrieintexas.

And last but not least, you’ll learn embroidery with another best-selling author, Kathy Schmitz! Kathy is a fourth-generation quilter who has been sewing and drawing since she was a child. She began designing fabric for Moda in 2002 and opened her pattern company, Kathy Schmitz Studio, in 2007. Her latest book, Stitches from the Yuletide, will be on store and online shelves beginning tomorrow! The Nutty’s Nest Notion Keeper you’ll be making from Stitches from the Harvest is as cute as can be. Learn more about Kathy online at

We’ll have a copy of each of these books waiting for you at Quiltstock—remember to get them all autographed!

  • Are sewing machines provided?

    Hi Rose – yes, sewing machines will be provided, so you don’t have to bring yours along unless you want to. Thanks for your question! –Jenny

  • I would love to go; each class sounds great and there will be such beautiful things made. I’ll just pretend to be there while working in my sewing room.
