Strong House Inn
Quilting In Vermont at the Strong House Inn offers the ultimate setting for quilters to reunite their creative passion and be spoiled in the process.
The No-Frills Quilting Retreat includes 2-nights at the STRONG HOUSE INN and 2 hearty country breakfasts. This modestly priced weekend gives you the flexibility to set your own agenda. Experience the many fine eateries in town and visit local quilt shops. You can bring your own quilting or crafting projects to the retreat and schedule your time on how long and when you want to work on your project.
Our Quilt Room offers cutting stations, ironing stations, design boards, sewing tables with padded chairs, air-conditioning/heat, excellent natural lighting, and plenty of overhead lights for those all-night sewing marathons. The Quilt Room is handicap accessible and includes spectacular views of the Adirondack Mountains.
