About

Welcome to Patchwork Acres Quilt Retreat Center!

I have wanted to live on a farm since I was a kid. Old barns, chicken coops, gardens, animals and everything country seems to feed my soul and I am tickled to finally be living it out.

While I have been quilting for about 17 years and consider myself pretty average at best, I appreciate all things handmade; even more so if it's been stitched! I have spent countless hours with women who have similar interests. These are times filled with laughter, sharing, inspiring, and encouragement. It's a fellowship that I believe every women should experience and I'm excited to be able to offer YOU a wonderful place for that.

Our 20 acre farm on Pumpkin Ridge in North Plains, Oregon offers four beautifully-themed bedrooms, a large and comfortable work space and a breathtaking setting, including a spectacular view of Mount Hood and panoramic views of the Tualatin Valley.

Whether you desire to work hard on quilt projects, shop and eat your way through Oregon, or just want to take in some rest and relaxation, we want this to be about YOU!

While our primary focus is quilting retreats, Patchwork Acres is the perfect venue for knitters/crocheters, scrapbookers and beaders.

 Call now and treat yourself to a get away with your "sister friends"!
