Retreat Center

Whether it be a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation, your group will have a memorable time at Farmer’s Daughters Quilts’ Retreat Center!

Farmer’s Daughters Quilts’ Retreat Center can accommodate you and twenty-six of your friends!

Sleeping rooms:

We provide bedding and towels in the sleeping rooms. Each apartment has a bathroom with a shower and/or bathtub. There is one apartment on the ground level that sleeps five people. There are five apartments upstairs that sleep 22 people.


Our spacious classroom/workroom comes equipped with two ironing boards, three cutting mats, and several design walls. We have many tables and rolling chairs that can be arranged to your liking in order to suit your group best! Outlets are plentiful in the workroom and we will provide surge protectors. Though the classroom/workroom is designed with quilters in mind, many other crafters enjoy the space!

Kitchen and Dining Room:

Oelwein offers many restaurants that serve to please, but if you would rather stay in and cook, we have a fully furnished kitchen and dining room for your group to use. You will find two refrigerators, a microwave, a stove and oven, crockpots, toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans, dishes and silverware.
