Kind words from the Bow Bench Retreat community

Bow Bench Retreat was started to be a place for quilters to gather, spread out and create. As Bow Bench Retreat has grown and changed over the years, we have been grounded by the fact that man sewists return for the community. 

Here are the kind words from our community.


I am blown away at how quickly I was able to learn how to quilt. If I can do it, I know you most certainly can, too!

I have found many new friends at Bow Bench Retreat and I look forward all week to going to class. I cannot think of a more supportive and knowledgeable person than Nancy to take you through your very first stiches, to finishing an amazing project.

She has a lot of experience in teaching many different quilting and sewing techniques and it really shows!


Whether you are working on your own project or attending one of the many classes taught by Nancy or other instructors, your experience will be a wonderful one.

Nancy not only makes you feel welcome, but she makes herself available throughout the day to help you with any questions you may have or makes suggestions that will guide you to complete the projects that might be giving you a few problems. 


Nancy helped me every step of the way with her patience and knowledge and in no time I was piecing together my very first quilt!

I love visiting Bow Bench Retreat because Nancy and all the other sewing ladies are always welcoming and it is a quiet place to get away for a few fun hours of sewing.

Nancy is always there to guide you if you need help.
