Don’t let winter chills leave you “all shook up!”
Don’t let winter chills leave you “all shook up!” Come quilt along to the music of the one and only Elvis Presley! You’ll find yourself transported to sandy shores with swaying palm trees at our Blue Hawaii Retreat. It’ll be a tropical oasis right here in little ol’ Hamilton! Feel refreshed and ready to sew again with plenty of fun new projects to try and there’ll also be time to work on personal projects too. Because this retreat is the first of the year, in addition to the traditional trunk show, Jenny will be making special guest appearances all weekend long!
So put on your best grass skirt,
pack your bags, and come join us!

Show & Tell
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.
Meals - We set out a continental breakfast Wednesday morning from 7 am- 9 am. Thursday and Friday at 8:00 am we have a sit down breakfast. We offer a daily lunch and dinner that are served at 12:00 pm and 5:30 pm. You are on your own to enjoy the area food if you wish to do that.
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 Saturday night for those who want to participate.
Shipping - There is free shipping for all of our guests who spend over $100 in the shops.

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 a queen bed 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. For shuttle information please call Lucas Stock at 785-393-5955.
