    Registration payments can be made using any credit/debit card.

    There are no day campers. You need to stay at the Blue Gate Garden Inn to attend the retreat. A group rate has been negotiated. Please call the hotel and ask for reservations to reserve your room. Our group rate is under Shipshewana Quilt Retreat.

  • *** Cancellations sometimes happen for a variety of reasons.

    • Please make your cancellation in writing (email is fine, but if you don’t receive an acknowledgment within three business days please email again and/or send snail mail.) All cancellations are subject to a $25 processing fee.
    • Cancellations 90 days before the start of the retreat will receive a full refund.
    • Cancellations 89-60 days before the start of the retreat will receive a 50% refund.
    • There is no refund for cancellations received less than 60 days before the start of the retreat – no exceptions and that includes COVID-19.

     There will be no refunds if the event is canceled 30 days before the event due to circumstances beyond my control, such as the weather, government-mandated shutdowns, or the moon crashing into the earth……..stuff like that as a contractual obligation with the hotel will still need to be paid.
