Are you an avid quilter, a beginner, or just a fan of the Elm Creek Manor novels by Jennifer Chiaverini? Whatever your experience level, the Inn’s quilting getaways in Pennsylvania offer an unforgettable retreat! Set in a historic Georgian mansion bed and breakfast in Mercersburg, enjoy catching up with old friends, making new ones, and come home with a beautiful quilt to remember it all by! You can even bring your non-quilting significant other who can enjoy discounted golf rates, shopping at the outlets, touring local historic sites or just relaxing on the porch!
Your Quilting Instructors
Craft an exquisite quilt under the instruction of one of two excellent quilt makers, Frankie or Carol! Frankie is a member of Everybody’s Quilt Guild and has a long-time love for quilting. For six years, she has been teaching at the weekend quilting events at the Mercersburg Inn and has a vast knowledge of quilting techniques. Carol, the mid-week instructor, is a certified “Quilt in a Day” teacher and has extensive experience traveling throughout the country teaching quilting retreats.
Your Quilting Getaway Itinerary
We offer a two day weekend and a three day mid-week getaways, several times throughout the year. On the first night, you’ll enjoy a meet-and-greet hour and a glass of wine with your instructor and Steven and Tomi the owners of the Mercersburg Inn. Then enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by Chef Dan Nowalk at the inn’s on-site restaurant, Byron’s Dining Room. The following days you’ll start the morning with a hearty breakfast before taking part in another quilting session. Take a break from creating your masterpiece to have lunch, and then it’s back to quilting for a few hours before enjoying another tasty dinner. After dinner, you can spend some free time hanging out in the game room or continue to work on your quilt before settling into a cozy room for the night.
