Welcome to Threads and Beds
Welcome to Threads and Beds Retreat Center! Our unique facility allows you to relax, explore your creativity, and have a fantastic time sewing, creating, and connecting to friends and fellow craftswomen. Our goal is to provide you with the most spacious and gracious accommodations you can find — a facility specifically designed for artistic endeavors of sewing, quilting, and scrapbooking. We look forward to hosting you and providing for your artistic needs, both in our retreat center and in the fabulous attached quilt shop, Threads of Time with more than 4000 bolts of fabrics, hundreds of the newest notions, and a complete book and pattern studio.
While you’re in the area, you might enjoy the historical sites around town including the Vermilion County Museum, the Lamon House, various antique shops, our local winery, and shows or concerts by the local theatre groups and symphony orchestra. Danville also boasts an ice rink, a baseball team and historic stadium, and beautiful soccer fields and regional parks. Nationally known retailers and restaurants are congregated at the Village Mall on the Northern end of town.
“Threads and Beds” is the retreat facility of Threads of Time owned by Bill and Missi Gouty. Imagine a 16,000 sq. feet of sewing and retreat space in one building on one level! We do not offer specific retreats: we are a retreat. While other quilt shops may do a retreat event once or twice a year, we are open 365 days a year for your sewing pleasure. Of course, we could provide a teacher and instructions for a specific project, but that is not what most customers want. Ninety-nine percent of our groups come simply to work on their own projects in the company of their friends. You are here to work at your leisure – for your own pleasure – at your own pace. So make your reservations now. Come enjoy the garden. Feel the inspiration. Sew in your jammies. Do your thing and enjoy “the times of your life and the fabric of the times….”
Rates in 2013: As of January 1, 2013, the rates at Threads and Beds will increase to $40 per night. This nominal increase helps us cover the escalating cost of utilities, supplies, maintenance, and cleaning. The “Times of Your Life” pass has also been increased to $400.00.
