New! Resort-style Retreat Event!

In 2020 Gammill will begin featuring Quilting with Confidence Retreat events. Held in beautiful locations around the country, these three-to-four day events will feature a menu of classes to pick from with a team of educators at each event. Join us for a relaxing few days of fun, education, and luxury surrounded by your fellow quilters.

Classes & Instruction

This retreat event will feature a menu of classes for quilters of all skill levels.  Each quilter will be able to select a minimum of 10 classes to attend.  Instruction will be available for hand-guided, Elevate and Statler quilters.  From business lessons to CreativeStudio instruction to hands-on hand-guided techniques, there are classes for every quilter. You do not need to own a Gammill to attend!
