Zelma Milgram Reid Laura Heine Certfied Instuctor

I began my sewing career as an Heirloom Sewing Teacher after many years of study at The Martha Pullen School of Art Fashion. For a short while I was an Educator with Viking White and then opened my own Husqvarna Viking White Dealership. As a Martha Pullen Licensed Teacher specializing in Christening Gowns and Children’s Clothing Construction, I enjoyed introducing children to the world of sewing and encouraging adults to expand their skills beyond their comfort level. Becoming a Laura Heine Collage Quilting Instructor afforded me the opportunity to introduce a unique approach to quilting as an art form. I have have been published in Classic Sewing Magazine and other trade journals, taught at Missouri Star Quilt Retreats in Hamilton, MO, Stitchin’ at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, SC, Quilt Shops and Retreats throughout the United States. Other than a passion for sewing and teaching, meeting new people and sharing my love of sewing are my most enjoyable pastim

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 - Each person will have their own 2 foot by 4 foot table. Due to limited space, we ask that you do not bring your own tables except for TV trays. If you need your personal sewing chair, feel free to bring it. The retreat center does have design walls by the sewing tables. We do have assigned seating for sewing. If you are traveling with friends and would like to sit together to sew, please contact: lucinda.morris@missouriquiltco.com.

Lunches are served at noon Wednesday and Thursday. Dinners will be served at 6:00pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. We are no longer able to honor special diets due to the increase of requests.

Snack Table - There will be a snack sharing table. Feel free to bring your own favorite munchies or special non-alcoholic drinks to share. There is coffee, tea, water, and ice available for us.

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.

Shuttle Options:

Nate Fish 816-527-3037 (Uber Driver)

Liz Manely 816-351-9172 (Shuttle Driver)

Keith Gilbert 816-295-8606 (Inn Transit)

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

  • 8 sleeping rooms in the main retreat center that share 6 communal restrooms.
  • 2 rooms with their own restroom that are accessible for individuals with disabilities.
  • 1 sleeping room with 8 beds in 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 customer’s interests and demands. We hope you will consider joining one of our retreats.
