Upcoming Events

Valentines Retreat 


Hard to believe that we are already taking reservations for the retreat in 2015.  But the Valentines Retreat in 2015 will be here before you know it. There will be lots of fun during retreat weekend!

The retreat will be held at the Best Western Plus in Mankato (right off of Highway 169).  The retreat will start at 1:00 p.m. on Friday February 6, 2015 and continue until Sunday February 8, 2015 at 4:00 p.m.

If you are a local and would like to go home at night, we have just the thing for you.  The Local Retreat includes dinner on Friday and Saturday, lunch on Saturday and Sunday.  The cost for the local retreat is $210.

If you would like to stay at the hotel, our Full Retreat is just the right thing for you.  The Full Retreat includes everything the local retreat has plus a room to sleep in for Friday and Saturday night at the hotel.  There is also a continental breakfast for the full retreaters.  The cost for the full retreat is $308 (2 person occupancy in hotel room).  If you would like a single room the cost will be $406.

Have you heard of Bonnie Hunter from Quiltville??  

Well, she is doing another one of her Mystery Quilts called: Grand Illusion

Check out Bonnie Hunter's new Quiltville Winter Mystery.  Bonnie was at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan this past May.  And the colorful building gave he lots of inspiration.  

You can check out Bonnie's blog at for all the information if you would like to participate in her free Mystery Quilt.

We will have the paint chips and will be stocking fabric to match the paint chips at the shop.

So our question to you.......there are a few of us who will be participating in this Mystery Class.  Would you like us to designate a day as Bonnie Hunter day and get together to work on the Mystery in Firefly's Classroom?  Let us know by emailing us at  The more the merrier!
