    1st EVER*** DOAN GIRLS RETREAT February 18-21, 2020

    This was something that popped up on the MSQC event page. I know with those fabulous Doan ladies and the fantastic retreat center crew that this retreat will be a blast. Here is the link and some information

    We are so excited to announce the first ever Doan Girls Retreat coming to Quilt Town USA in February 2020. Imagine spending time learning from the one and only Jenny Doan and her girls, Natalie and Misty. They truly are an inspiring, fun loving family. Their quick wit and sense of humor will keep you in stitches. You will love spending time sewing and laughing with the Doan girls.

    All of the projects are yet to be determined, but don't worry, you will love them!! There will be a couple of large quilts and a couple of smaller projects to work on. All of the fabric you need will be supplied (minus the backing). You only need to bring your favorite basic sewing supplies and notions. You can bring your own sewing machine or you can reserve a sewing machine online. The shops will be open if you happen to forget something or need a new spool of thread! Jenny and her girls will be sharing their favorite quilts, patterns, notions, and more. Please come and join us for our very first Doan Girls Retreat in Hamilton, Missouri.

    All of our handicapped guests for the Doans Girls Retreat will be placed at Hotel Hamilton (703 West Berry Street) where all rooms are ADA compliant.

    Monday Early check in to the Retreat Center:

    If you are wanting to get an early start on the retreat or your flight brings you to Hamilton Monday, you may check in after 40 pm. The cost ia $50 per person per night and is payable when you arrive.

    All rooms upstairs are shared rooms. NO PRIVATE ROOMS.

    Ages 18 and over please.

    Our sleeping rooms are on the second floor of the Retreat Center and are only accessible via stairs. They are shared rooms, configured in several different ways from rooms that have three twin beds, to a room that sleeps six. There are six individual, private bathrooms, each with a shower, toilet and sink, just steps away from the sleeping rooms that are shared by all the guests on the second floor. We also have two sleeping rooms located on the main floor, each with two twin beds and its own bathroom, that we reserve for individuals who cannot physically climb the stairs to the second floor. We are located 15 minutes east of I-35 and MO Hwy 36, approximately 60 miles north of Kansas City. If you are flying in, you'll want to fly into Kansas City International airport. We are a little over an hour from the airport.

    Shuttle Options:
    Nate Fish 816-527-3037 (Uber Driver)
    Liz Manely 816-351-9172 (Shuttle Driver)
    Keith Gilbert 816-295-8606 (Inn Transit)

    Men are welcome at all of our quilting retreats. In our retreat center we have the following sleep accommodations:

    8 sleeping rooms in the main retreat center that share 6 communal restrooms.
    2 rooms with their own restroom that are accessible for individuals with disabilities.
    1 sleeping room with 8 beds in our mini-retreat center with access to 2 communal restrooms.

    We assign the rooms with the communal restroom facilities in the main retreat center to individuals of the same gender. Often women are assigned to these rooms in the main retreat center because more women register for the retreats, but if enough men registered, we would assign men to these rooms. We reserve the accessible rooms for individuals with a disability, but make these rooms available to another guest (male or female) if no individual requests an accessible room. The sleeping room in the mini-retreat center is assigned to a group of the same gender to share the sleeping room and communal restrooms. The rooms in the mini-retreat center are often assigned to individuals of the opposite gender from those assigned to the main retreat center.

    Missouri Star Quilt continues to explore retreat offerings that meet our customer’s interests and demands. We hope you will consider joining one of our retreats.

    Wow what a fun party that would be! Unfortunately the price leaves me out. I am not saying it's not worth it but it looks like it's $400-500 plus whatever it costs to get there. If you go, plesse take photos and let us know how it was.


      Re: 1st EVER*** DOAN GIRLS RETREAT February 18-21, 2020

      I thought I saw $650 per bed and $500 for a commuter. Seems pricey to me!


        Re: 1st EVER*** DOAN GIRLS RETREAT February 18-21, 2020

        I think this would be a wonderful experience and opportunity. Unfortunately my hubby is having cataract surgery at the beginning of February and I am already booked at a retreat from 23-28. I will enjoy reading feedback from those who attend, and consider this in future.

        Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

        Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.


          Re: 1st EVER*** DOAN GIRLS RETREAT February 18-21, 2020

          I would love to do this!

          Sadly, it's the week before Mardi Gras, and I'm already booked to dance in 4 parades that week. I hope it goes really well. SO well that they decided to do it again later in 2020 (when I'm available to come)!!


            Re: 1st EVER*** DOAN GIRLS RETREAT February 18-21, 2020

            It seems pricey but it does say all fabric (minus backing) will be provided..... That is usually a big expense when you have to shop for all your own fabric for the projects.


              Re: 1st EVER*** DOAN GIRLS RETREAT February 18-21, 2020

              This is not a doable retreat for me is actually at the overflow center across the street and you have to be able to navigate stairs.
              Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love
