2018 Crafting Retreats at Lutherlyn

Do you feel like you need a vacation just so you can finish a project or try your hand at a new crafting hobby? 

Lutherlyn’s Crafting Retreats are the perfect opportunities for you!
You choose the length of your stay and bring your quilting, scrapbooking, or other craft supplies, and we take care of the rest!  

Retreat Focus
Lutherlyn’s Crafting Retreats provide time to work on projects while offering a lot of fun and fellowship with fellow crafters.  You’ll be provided with your own table/work space with access to electricity.  Our Crafty Ladies have varied interests such as quilting, weaving, scrapbooking, knitting, jewelry making, painting, and many others.  Some ladies come with friends and some arrive alone and make friends while crafting, but everyone shares a lot of laughs.

Meals are served buffet style at designated meal times in our Dining Hall.  Drinks and lots of snacks are available all day.  Our chef can accommodate dietary needs as necessary.  Please include information regarding your needs when registering (food allergies, gluten free, vegetarian, etc.) so we may plan appropriately for your stay.  Typically breakfast is served at 8:10 am, lunch at 12:15 pm, and dinner at 5:00 pm.  Many of our crafters bring cookies, crackers, and candy to add to the snack buffet, you are welcome to do so, but certainly not required.

Our cabins are equipped with central heating, carpeting, and full bathroom facilities (shower, toilet, and sink).  Each family style cabin features 6 twin beds.  Guests provide their own linens and toiletries.

A limited number of private rooms are available for an additional $15/night.  Please list “Private Room” in the Cabin Buddies field when you register, and include the extra fee in your payment.

Space is limited.  Registrations must be received by the deadline listed above.  We encourage you to use the online form below to complete your registration.  Registrations may also be completed using the form found within the printable brochure above.  You can also pick up pre-printed forms at the Lutherlyn office during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 9 am - 4:30 pm).

You may register for more than one retreat at a time IF all the details of your stays will be exactly the same (i.e. you wish to come for entire weekends and will commute to both).  If your stay differs from one retreat to another (i.e.  you wish to arrive Tuesday in January, but won't arrive until Wednesday in September) please complete a separate registration for each stay.

Each of Lutherlyn's Crafting Retreats follows a similar schedule.  You can choose to arrive as early as 10:00 am Tuesday morning and the retreat concludes after lunch Sunday.  Friday evening after most of our weekend crafters arrive we enjoy group devotions.  Saturday afternoon features the option of a 10 minute chair massage.  Chair massages are $10 (not included with the cost of your stay) and guests pay the massage therapist directly.  Saturday evening (on occasion it's Friday evening) includes a tasty seasonal snack.  Saturday or Sunday morning a worship service is held for those who wish to attend.  These worship services are typically led by a volunteer pastor and usually feature guitar accompaniment with hymns.  The rest of your stay is up to you!  You can stay up late, sleep-in, or be an early riser.  Many of our guests also take short trips to local quilt shops and stores.
