There’s lots of quilt retreat housing options these days.
This August, the Kwilty Girls are going to stay at
Mill House, in Utica.
Kathy Guenther and I checked it out just after they opened.
Very roomy and lots of charm.
The front entrance has a wooden inlay in the floor.
It’s a quilt design and the owners
made a quilt in replica.
The sewing area is in 2 adjoining spaces
and seat 8 people comfortably!
We have 6 in our group, sew plenty of room!
Nice chairs for comfort and spacious tables.
These flat back chairs have been replaced.
A really nice part of the place is a sitting room!
With a TV and plenty of comfy furniture!
Probably where our masseuse will set up!
Yes we hire someone to come in
On the last day!
There’s a fully equipped kitchen.
Although breakfast is brought in for us!
BUT the Kwilty Girls can cook too!
There’s a door that opens off the front foyer
that leads to an Underground Railroad exit.
I hope it locks securely…kinda creepy to me.
I heard there’s a ghost who owners believe was
A soldier with a wooden leg?
sometimes a thumping walk can be heard?
Hope he likes crazy Kwilty Girls in his space!
So that’s a MUST!
And if your taste runs more toward something a bit stronger…
there’s a the Mill Street Distillery …
in the quaint downtown area.
And tastings are available!
small batch bourbons and brandy!
Looks like some moonshine too!
The Mill Street Event venue is popular for weddings.
Maybe will will see one or at least
Find a perfect quilt photo op!
Will keep you posted!
