Location & Travel

Stitchfest, Texas will be held at the Sunset Retreat Center in Sunset, Texas.

Sunset is located approximately an hour northwest from DFW airport between Decatur and Bowie.

Sunset Retreat Center is designed for quilting retreats and is truly the perfect space for this event; it even features an on site quilt shop that’s open 24/7 during the event.

Set on 150 picturesque acres, it is a wonderful place to relax. There is a large well-lit common sewing room. Each quilter will have two tables arranged in an L-shape.

There is a kitchenette area complete with a full size refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker for guest use located in the quilting room.

All delicious meals are prepared in house, and served buffet style in the large dining room. There is a fully stocked breakfast bar also located in the dining room, where along with all the breakfast items there is coffee, tea and an ice machine available for guest use at all times.

The living room area is complete with a TV/DVD/Satellite and perfect if you need a break or just want to do some hand work on the couch.

Overnight accommodations consist of ten spacious bedrooms each with 3-5 twin beds.  There is an en-suite bathroom in every room. Bathrooms have a large, two sink vanity area separated from the commode and walk in shower.

After a long day of quilting you might want to spend some time on the garden patio relaxing by the fountain or chatting around the fire pit. There’s plenty of space to go for a morning run or stretch your legs during the day.
