Quilting and Crafting Retreats

Gather together a group of up to 8 fun friends to spend a productive weekend together working on your favorite crafting or quilting projects. Our 800 sq ft workroom has 8 workstations with 20” x 48” K-leg sewing tables for excellent stability plus additional 2’x4’ tables for spreading out your materials. In addition, there are 6 design walls, 3 ironing stations and 2 cutting stations. Depending on your group’s size and needs, the room can be reconfigured to give you the space you need. 

Our B&B was built in 1910 and while it retains its old-world charm, it has been updated with all of today’s modern conveniences. The onsite homeowners, Patti and her husband, Dana, purchased the home in August of 2015 and soon realized they had a lot of space that was going unused. They decided to begin operating as a B&B and opened to guests in February 2016. They have hosted over 3500 guests from 16 countries since opening their doors. As a quilter, Patti saw the need for more quilting retreat space in the area, so they renovated the lower level to add the Sewing Studio in December of 2018 and the retreat center was born.  Patti also owns and operates KC Maker Studio & Fabrics in Mission, KS.  

Located in the Valentine neighborhood of midtown Kansas City, Missouri, KC Maker Studio is walking distance to Westport and only a few minutes from the Country Club Plaza. In addition to numerous common areas, we have 4 guest rooms outfitted as follows:

  • 1 suite with Queen Bed and Twin Bed with a full private bath - Third Floor of B&B
  • 3 rooms with 2 Twin Beds - shared full bath across the hall - Second Floor of B&B
  • 2 additional half baths - Main Floor of B&B and the adjoining lower level sewing studio

Each guest room accommodates 2 guests and per city code we can accommodate a maximum group of up to 8 guests per night.  Meals can be prepared in the kitchen or you can take a break and visit one of the 50+ amazing restaurants nearby, many within a 2 block walk. A kitchenette with full refrigerator, microwave and Keurig is attached to the sewing room, so you can keep your snacks and drinks close by. 

Retreats begin at noon on the check-in date and end at noon on the final day.  Retreats can be scheduled on any date that space is available.  See link below to view the Retreat Availability Calendar.
