About the Trip Organizer

I’ve been a traveler my whole life. When I was 5, my family moved to Germany to live for the next 5 years. While there, we traveled around Europe extensively. And, I got bitten by the travel bug! I’ve lived in Europe (twice), traveled there several times, and visited numerous U.S. states, Canada, and Central America. 

I’ve always sewn (my Mom was a professional seamstress), and after I discovered quilting in 2003, I very quickly also discovered quilting retreats. What fun! Getting to hang out with friends for a weekend, shop, eat (and not cook or do the dishes), talk, and SEW! I was hooked.

I am the person my friends and family ask to arrange group travel. I pay attention to the small details and plan trips that everyone enjoys. My friends refer to me as the “cruise director” because I love travel planning so much!

I have been organizing quilting retreats for several years. The retreats are so popular that they sell out and there’s a waiting list.

 
"Patti has great organizational skills which makes event planning perfect for her. Not only does she do a great job at planning the events but she also is great at ensuring everyone is taken care of personally."

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What about Covid 19? 
A: If the local/national situation warrants cancellation, I will let you know. In that case, you have the choice of rolling over your deposit to a rescheduled date or receive a full refund. We did have to cancel in 2020 and that’s the policy we followed. Anyone who asked for a refund got one. 

Q: What’s the International Quilters’ Guild? 
A: We are an online-only group of quilters who interact on Facebook. The group is free to join. 

Q: What about meals? I have a food preference or allergy. 
A: You’ll get an opportunity to review the menu and indicate any dietary needs closer to the event. 

"I look forward to retreats with Patti weeks, even months, before they arrive. We can all get a little overwhelmed with everyday life, and it's a huge relief (and great joy) for me to know that two weekends each year will be perfectly planned, pleasantly relaxed, and uniquely productive ... thanks to Patti."
