What to expect:

Bring projects to work on - You may not want to take a class and if you choose not to do this you will want to bring projects to work on. Your free time is your own to do as you please. We will have demonstrations and optional mini classes throughout the retreat. You can participate in these classes if you wish. We do not include a supply list for these classes because they are smaller and do not require much fabric. You can shop an MSQC shop or browse through one of the area stores. There is always something to do in Hamilton.

Sewing tables - We do have assigned seating for sewing. Ifyou are traveling with friends and would like to sit together to sew, please contact:

Meals -A continental breakfast will be servedWednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings at 8:00 am. Our breakfast includes, cereal, oatmeal, toast, bagels, yogurt, cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs, & fresh fruit. We offer lunch vouchers to Hamilton Baking Co. and Blue Sage so you have an opportunity to enjoy our local restaurants. Dinner is served at 6:00 pm here at the retreat center and is provided by one of our local caterers.

Snack Table- We set out a snack table and encourage you to bring a snack to share with the group.

Show & Tell- We will have a Show & Tell time on Thursday night for those who want to participate.

Shipping- There is free shipping for all of our guests who spend over $100 in the shops.

Quilt Classes & Supply list - We will teach the block and the finished size is up to you. Our classes are 15-20 minutes and are based on Jenny's tutorials. We are here all day to help you with your blocks.

****Classes to be determined****

Sewing machines

You can bring your unfinished projects from home, or drop in at our stores in town to purchase anything you may want to start something new. PLUS.....our sewing/activity and kitchen areas are available for you to use 24 hrs. a day! And, when you're ready to turn in, you'll sleep like a log in our comfy, cozy beds.

Sleeping room


All rooms upstairs are shared rooms.NO PRIVATE ROOMS.

Ages 18 and over please.

Our sleeping rooms are on the second floor of the Retreat Center and are only accessible via stairs. They are shared rooms, configured in several different ways from rooms that have three twin beds, to a room that sleeps six. There are six individual, private bathrooms, each with a shower, toilet and sink, just steps away from the sleeping rooms that are shared by all the guests on the second floor. We also have two sleeping rooms located on the main floor, each with two twin beds and its own bathroom, that we reserve for individuals who cannot physically climb the stairs to the second floor.

We are located 15 minutes east of I-35 and MO Hwy 36, approximately 60 miles north of Kansas City. If you are flying in, you'll want to fly into Kansas City International airport. We are a little over an hour from the airport.

Men are welcome at all of our quilting retreats. In our retreat center we have the following sleep accommodations:

  • 8 sleepingrooms in the main retreat center that share 6communal restrooms.
  • 2 rooms with their own restroom that are accessible for individuals with disabilities.
  • 1 sleeping room with 8 bedsin our mini-retreat center with access to 2 communal restrooms.

We assign the rooms with the communal restroom facilities in the main retreat center to individuals of the same gender. Often women are assigned to these rooms in the main retreat center because more women register for the retreats, but if enough men registered, we would assign men to these rooms. We reserve the accessible rooms for individuals with a disability, but make these rooms available to another guest (male or female) if no individual requests an accessible room. The sleeping room in the mini-retreat center is assigned to a group of the same gender to share the sleeping room and communal restrooms. The rooms in the mini-retreat center are often assigned to individuals of the opposite gender from those assigned to the main retreat center.

Missouri Star Quilt continues to explore retreat offerings that meet our customers interests and demands. We hope you will consider joining one of our retreats.
