Craft Retreats

We welcome you to a time away that is all about you and quilting or whatever craft you want to enjoy. Next Door will be set up and ready for you. Sleep comfortably in one of our charming rooms and enjoy delicious breakfasts and lunch served in our dining room. We can also provide information on local attractions, restaurants, shopping, and arrange historic tours, massage and other activities for your time in the Amana Colonies if you prefer a diversion from crafting. There are two premier quilt shops in the colonies: Heritage Designs and Fernhill.**

Next Door craft room will be available from the moment you check-in until the moment of your departure. Next Door has a full kitchen dedicated to your use throughout the retreat. Complimentary coffee and tea available.  

Crafters are provided with a 6' table, chair, electric, ironing and cutting stations and all regular inn amenities.

Crafting retreat packages include a special 3 pm late departure time – you must be out of your room by 11:00 for housekeeping, but the Next Door work space is yours to enjoy until 3:00 pm on day of departure.

**If your group would like a quilting demonstration or special shopping hours at the Amana quilt shops, Heritage Designs and Fernhill, we can arrange that for you. Call June at 319-622-3937 to arrange details.

I liked everything. It was a wonderful weekend; relaxing and close to the (Amana) quilt shops – the B&B was awesome and has a complete facility here for events like this.
