Our 5 bedroom 3.5 bathroom home is secluded on a large lot on Hwy H South. We can comfortably sleep 7-14 guests. The newly renovated vacation retreat center is uniquely appointed to serve quilters, beaders, and scrapbookers and other crafters. Our amenities are ideal for a girls’ get-away weekend.

Hello! I’m Roxann and I am thrilled to invite you to be a part of my dream, a quilting and crafting retreat.
As a little girl, I spent summers at my grandparents’ home in Northern Wisconsin, and remember my Grandmother working on a quilt project during our visit. I recall her tracing a 4×4 metal plate (cut from sheet metal). I helped her machine stitch three sides of the tufts, hand stitch the fourth side and then hand stitch the filled blocks together. After that experience, my interest in fabric craft was piqued. To this day, I’m like a kid in a fabric store!
Throughout the years I sewed consistently (mostly costumes and clothes for my children), but didn’t find my way back to quilting until about four years ago when my dear friend Charlene invited me to a retreat. I was hooked.
In December 2014, my husband and I went searching for the perfect space to accommodate every quilters needs. When I stepped into what is now the On Pins and Needles crafting room, I said to myself, “this is my retreat”. Renovations began in March of 2015 and we haven’t looked back since!

Here is what some of our recent guest have to say about their stay at On Pins and Needles
This place is absolutely amazing, very reasonable priced, and you get so much more value than I have ever seen any place else! The lay out is perfect for any quilting/crafting retreat! Love the special touches she has added to the rooms! The sewing room has so much space you won't feel crowded no matter how many people are with you! The cutting board is huge! And the place is so clean! I love how she updated the older part of the house but it definitely still has charm. She has thought of everything! We CAN'T wait to go back!!!

I'd rate this as a 10 star place. This place has everything a quilter could want for an amazing retreat. All you need is your projects and sewing machine & quilting tools everything else is provided from large individual work space with adjustable chair and magnifying light to design wall-to large cutting table to large ironing table with iron to washer and dryer. The living accommodations makes for a wonderful quilt escape weekend too. Looking forward to 2016 get away weekends.

Our group had a wonderful time! The space for sewing is perfect. Roxanne has provided everything we could need and more! The place is set up for sewing,cooking and sleeping. The decor is so cute with lots of thoughtful details. Loved all the natural light from the windows in the sewing space and the cozy comfy chairs in the living room for some quiet time. Roxanne was so welcoming and made sure we were comfortable for the weekend. We can't wait to plan our next retreat there!!
