At Home with Marianne Fons

Join Marianne Fons in the Heartland of Quilting!

September 13 – 15, 2018

Winterset, Iowa, the town where Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting was born, will be host to an unprecedented quilt retreat. And you’re invited!

In no time at all, you’ll fall under the spell of Winterset’s unique charms. And you’ll learn a new thing or two about quilting, too!

Spend your days piecing new projects in the company of friends, old and new. This exclusive quiltmaking experience with Marianne Fons and Love of Quilting alum, Diane Tomlinson, will be an unforgettable retreat you won’t want to miss.
