We are excited to announce the relocation of Needlework Hideaway to Memphis, Tennessee!  We have been searching for a location that will allow us to grow in size, yet remain comfortable in our settings and we believe we have found it!  St. Columba Retreat Center will allow lodging for over 50 guests all in one building, plus additional lodging on the property, if that is needed as well. 

The Center is located on 145 acres just 20 minutes from downtown Memphis . 
There are 20 bedrooms within our lodge with 2 or 3 single beds per room and a shared bathroom between each pair of rooms.  You may have a private room and shared bath for an additional fee. 
The meals will be provided in a dining room located within our lodge.  Eleven meals are included in your registration fee.  (Dinner – Wednesday, Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner – Thursday, Friday & Saturday, Brunch – Sunday)
There’s a large room for stitching along with a separate room for classes within our lodge.
We will be the only group in our lodge so you can stitch in your jammies if you choose!
There are trails to walk and enjoy the incredible scenery.
It’s close to Memphis and shopping if you choose to take a break from stitching.
Memphis has an International Airport making travel easy. Let us know your flight arrangements and we’ll get you picked up at the airport.


We’re looking forward to sharing this new venue with you so let us know that you’re coming. Fall, 2015 will be October 14th thru the 18th. Reserve the date and send Tracey your reservation or reserve on the website today!
