No foolin'! The MYSTERY RETREAT will be 4 relaxed, fun-filled days in Quilt Town USA. 

4 night Retreat with check-in beginning @ 4 pm Monday April 1. Check out Friday April 5th 11am***. 


MYSTERY class- Courtenay Hughes will guide you through the process of making a lap sized mystery quilt. Fabric selection suggestions and cut instructions will be emailed to each participant within one week of registration. This will guide you through choosing the fabrics to bring to retreat for your MYSTERY QUILT!

This class is sure to be a lot of fun. All you will know is the fabrics that you are using! Then, throughout the retreat Courtenay will reveal/teach one block at a time. By the end of the retreat you will have learned all the blocks to finish your MYSTERY QUILT!

Finished quilt size: 60x60 (additional borders can be added. NOT included in instructions for purchasing fabric)



Courtenay has been quilting for over 30 years. She has no idea where her love for the craft comes from as her mother didn't even like to hem pants. She has worked and taught in several quilt shops. Her current position as head of the sewing team at Missouri Star is a perfect fit for her.Along with winning blue ribbons for several of her quilts, she has a class on the Craftsy forum called Luminous Lone Star. She has also been on several Facebook lives for Missourii Star, and has filmed several videos/classes for them.Courtenay lives in Hamilton, along with her husband of 22 years and 2 dogs and an old cat.
