We are accepting bookings and are looking forward to welcoming you to our new home in Northeast Texas! We can sleep a maximum of 10 people. We have no minimum number of quests or nights for your stay but we do hope you'll bring your friends and stay a few days or week with us! 

Our Shop and Retreat has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, living room , full kitchen, and 16 X 36 sewing/crafting area inside the Quilt shop.  In the sewing/crafting area, there are 6-foot tables for sewing, plenty of wall and overhead outlets, and design walls that span the area. There are Martelli cutting tables, a large ironing boards, and several small ironing tables for your use.
