What amenities do you offer?
Our 4900 square foot facility has 9 bedrooms, 6 with 3 beds and 3 with 2 beds. There is a dining hall, kitchen, cutting room, sewing room, and shower room. When set up for 20 sewing stations, we have three large ironing stations. These usually have a large iron at each station (upon occasion one will get broken and there is a delay in replacement of the iron). There are two outside porches for relaxation after a fun day/evening of sewing. The facility has central heat/air with 3 temperature zones. The Facility has 7 toilets, 5 showers, and 4 lavatories. Each very comfortable bed comes with linens, 3 piece towel set, pillow, bed quilt, reading light, and luggage stand. Each guest will have their own personal sewing table with an individual ironing station and an adjustable sewing chair. This table allows you to sew at a comfortable height. We realize each machine is a little different. Make sure to bring accessory bin or sewing surface to help fill your sewing table opening which is 11.25 inches by 20 inches. Our sewing room has excellent lighting and a design wall around the complete interior perimeter walls from ceiling to floor. The shower room is equipped with a blow dryer and magnifying mirror. Each shower has a personal dressing area and most have wall heaters. Each shower has a liquid body wash dispenser. Each vanity is equipped with a hand soap dispenser. The kitchen is equipped with a commercial stove/oven with fire suppression system, refrigerator, freezer, commercial microwave, Keurig coffemaker, dishwasher, trash compactor, filtered water and icemaker. We provide reusable plates, flatware, glasses, coffee cups, bowls, and a few serving utensils. Please be considerate of others participating in a retreat. In a confined space it is always best to keep speaking volume low and appropriate so others can enjoy their retreat in a peaceful environment. Refrain from wearing perfumes and any other smells as many people have sensitivity to smells. We provide WIFI at no additional expense as of January 2016 (wifi is available in the main sewing area currently).

We normally have a independent personal chef that is available for your group to use. This chef is not an employee of the retreat center. They charge $9 per meal (with a minimum of 14 per meal) and will work with you on what meals you want cooked. Once a head count is given the Monday before your retreat, that money is due even if your numbers drop because of an individuals personal situation. The chef contract is sent to each retreat coordinator. If a cook is not available for a retreat, we will do our best to find another option for your group but the retreat center is not responsible for providing meals. Let us know your needs. In the case of a "retreat sponsored" education event, we collect money for the cook in advance so we know how many participants are committed to attending the retreat. If the cook becomes unavailable, we will do our best to remedy the situation but we do not assume the responsibility to cook for the group. A refund for food will be given if meals are not provided in these situations. There are eating options in Leonard and our local Kwik Chek. The payment check or cash for meals goes directly to the caterer. This is collected as you arrive and sign in if you are part of a independent group using our facility.
We have a massage therapist that is available to give massages if you book in advance of retreat date. She comes highly recommended and charges $1 per minute so- $30 for 30 minutes (minimum) or $60 for 1 hour. She will do up to one hour massages. She has a portable massage table that she brings to our facility if you let us know that you would like her to be available during your stay with us.
We are able to book CF Sharpening Services to come during your retreat. He has a minimum of ten items needed for him to come during a retreat. Advance booking is required. Click here for his price list.
We offer sewing machine or long arm machine servicing while you retreat. Click here for information on manufacturers, pricing, and assorted information.
We have an Elna Star or EL3230 sewing machine for rent if you do not want to bring your own machine or if yours stops working. Cost is $12.50 per day. Make sure to reserve if needed. We have one available.
Occupancy: A two night stay is required and assumed for all pricing quotes. Shorter stays may be available at times; however additional cleaning fees will apply depending on size of group.
The maximum number of guests at The Facility is 24. All guests must be listed on the guest registration form. Signature is required on this sheet. The minimum group size is 14 guests. Double occupancy will be required in all rooms. If a guest requests an individual room, and it is available, a fee of $35 will be added for that guest for that visit.

click here to view and print contract. We are excited to have you considering our retreat center! Our contract is designed to answer all those questions asked by individuals. We are very focused on you and your group having a great retreat. We want everyone to have a safe and fun retreat. We have designed our retreat center to best suit quilters. The sewing room walls are design walls...completely. You just gotta see this! Your work space has ample room to organize and sit out your projects and accessories because of the "Quilter's Work Station" that we designed for each station. We invested in sewing tables for each retreater so that at the end of a long retreat your shoulders and neck won't be so worn out from reaching upwards as on a regular table. Come take a tour and book your next group retreat!
Refund Policy: For retreats that are organized by Quiltagious Quarters, refunds are only available if you cancel within 60 days of first retreat day. Our retreats usually include a teacher that charges a fee to come teach at our facility. We must make sure to fill these retreats to cover our expenses. If we are able to fill your spot then you will receive a refund. If we have several that cancel within the 60 days, we only give refunds for spots we are able to fill. We always do our best to give refunds if possible. In the event of ice during your scheduled retreat, IF local schools are closed in our area or the area of the retreat group--we will work with the retreat coordinator to find another date or refund to those unable to attend.
For retreats scheduled by a retreat coordinator not associated with our facility, refunds are available if you cancel within 30 days of retreat if your group has over 12 people. "No shows" or last minute cancellation depend upon group policies and the number of people in the retreat. If the caterer has been told that an individual will eat then she must be paid for food she has purchased.
Where & When do I send payment?
Please send check payments to : PO Box 418 Celeste, TX 75423
$100 deposit is due as soon as you reserve your group's date. Individual fees for the retreat weekend are due eight weeks before your scheduled retreat. If it is a teacher retreat, an email is sent with payment due date which is normally several months in advance of the retreat date. When we have a retreat that is organized by Quilt Mercantile or the retreat center, payment may be due sooner than the eight weeks. Information will be sent to you for those events. To keep prices low, we do not currently accept credit cards as a form of payment.
