On 8/16/2023 Cyndi had this to say:
This past week was my 2nd quilt retreat with friends at the DeWitt house and I can highly recommend this historic house in Platteville for a retreat. The owner of Hidden Quilts has put a lot of effort into making sure every quilter has plenty of space, lighting and comfort. I love the quilting boards and sharing designs and collaborating details with other quilters. The kitchen is awesome if you're into gourmet meal prep, the porch perfect for a relaxing with a beverage and beds very comfy! You won't be disappointed! Testimonial written by Cyndi on this site.

A wonderful place to retreat! It has everything a quilter needs, just bring your sewing machine, fabric and supplies and make quilts! The house interior is beautiful, the sewing space is lovely and the beds are so comfortable! It’s near the UW campus, you can walk to the university activities. What a lovely retreat center and the nearest quilt shop is in the next block. I recommend this center for your next retreat. Testimonial written by JEAN F on this site.
