I am remodeling an old church and parsonage into a quilt retreat in Northern Iowa. I am looking for advice. Any absolute "Do's" or "Don'ts"?  I want to make this as quilter friendly as possible!

Thanks in advance!

Hi Julie

The setting looks awesome.

We would like really good internet access.  WIFI please.

For you summer retreaters - the church and parsonage have central air. WIFI has been a challenge, being so rural, but it will be there! We may have to build our own tower, but scrapbookers who use the retreat also, tend to need it, too!

I totally agree. I dont mind paying a bit extra to have a small room of my own. Nothing fancy needed.  Dont even need tv, just a small room to sleep and dress.  It would be great to set up like freshman dorms.  4 small rooms with a kitchen and bathroom shared. Nice pod
