Welcome to CJ’s Dream Retreats

Call this your home for a long weekend!

Mystery Quilt at the beach

Join us in these beautiful townhomes for a fabulous, fully hosted quilting retreat across the street from the ocean in Seaside, Oregon.  Relax in the living room looking at the ocean and visiting with friends (old and new). Head up to the den to watch a movie, do hand work, or just enjoy the view.

When it’s time to eat, join us in the dining room and everything will be ready for you.  We can accommodate most dietary needs.  We have many different sleeping areas with a total of 4 king beds, 5 queen beds, and 7 single beds. 14-16 ladies can come and enjoy these wonderful “homes,” care free, for the weekend.


When you are ready to work, head to the “get’er done” side. 

The “get’er done“ side is located upstairs in the right townhouse.  It has a large sewing area with a beautiful ocean view, plenty of cutting stations, ironing stations, and design walls.  You will have a minimum of 3′ x 30″ of sewing space and a swivel, adjustable chair.  The kitchen will be fully stocked with snacks, juice, soda, coffee, tea, fruit, etc.  This house will be available for your use 24 hours a day!

At some point during your stay you will be awarded a 30 minute sewing slave! A sewing slave is an experinced quilter who can rip seams, iron fabrics, cut straight lines or do whatever you would like them to do to help you “no one but you” for 30 minutes!

These retreats are designed for you.  You choose what you want to do.  Work on your own projects, join in the group project/class that we have scheduled, or do both.


 What to expect at these retreats?

Lots of laughter, fun, great food, gifts, and productive quilting time!

Thursday evenings will be show and tell, so bring a few things to show!

We have tried to schedule group projects/classes that will also give you some time to work on your own projects. So be sure to bring at least one of your own projects to work on!  We will have available to purchase all the essential sewing needs, some fabrics and some kits, so no worries if you forget something.

Not far from us are Homespun Quilts and Custom Threads in Astoria, Oregon, Center Diamond Quilt Store in Cannon Beach and Creative Fabrics in Wheeler, Oregon.

Homespun Quilts in Astoria may have Bernina sewing machines available to rent. You can call them at 503-325-3300 to reserve a machine.

We will take care of all your food and beverages (adult beverages not included).   So come play at the beach with us!!
