This year’s Ozark Quilt Retreat is being held in the air-conditioned ambiance of the Bois d’Arc Conference Center, as well as in the classrooms in the Ozark Folk Center Administration Building. We are offering two classes this year, Stacky Star Quilt with Daphne Higginbotham; and Off-Center Log Cabin Quilting with Rita Madson.
The registration fee for each class is $38 which you can purchase online here, and includes admission to the Ozark Folk Center Craft Village. Also, you can look at our gallery of quilt photos you will create here!
The total cost for a quilt workshop during the Ozark Fall Quilt Retreat is $203, which includes registration, a teacher reserve cost of $50, and class fee of $115 that is due directly to your teacher on the first day of class.
Lodging is available in the park at The Cabins at Dry Creek, our newly remodeled duplex-style hotel rooms. There is a Folk School discount for students booking more than 3 days. Call the Cabins office at 800-264-3655 to book with the discount. To book rooms for less than three days, click here.
After you sign up for the retreat, your teacher will contact you with more information on supplies and to see if you have any questions. At that time, most teachers ask for your reservation fee, which is refundable if the class does not have enough students to take place.

Stacky Star Quilt taught by Daphne Higginbotham
Come join us for a fun class using the method of stacking several identical layers of a print fabric together and cutting into shapes that will make beautiful stars! This is a great design for a medium to large print fabric. It is always so exciting to spread the cut pieces out and see all the different design combinations you will have. Usually, no two are alike!
You will be making a throw size quilt so that you will have time to complete or almost complete it in class. An important part of this class is learning how to stack your fabric for proper cutting. You will do all of your cutting in class – NO pre-cutting at home! (Be sure you have rotary cutting experience).
$50 teacher reserve deposit should be mailed directly to me. I will send your supply list once I receive this deposit. Please reserve your space as early as possible so you will have plenty of time to gather your fabrics. Please call Daphne at (870) 213-6012 if you have questions. This is my cell and if I don't answer, PLEASE LEAVE A VOICE MAIL. (You can send me a text, also, if you want.) I look forward to seeing you and Happy Quilting! Daphne Higginbotham
