My name is Patricia Rosa. I am both a textile designer, with a special interest in quilt fabrics, and the proprietor of Rosa Mountain House Quilting Retreats.
About nine years ago a friend invited me to a quilt retreat in the Berkshires. Since then I’ve been hooked on quilting and retreats. I love the camaraderie, the sharing of ideas, getting inspired, learning from others and spending quality time with projects.
Five years ago, while looking for a house in the Catskills, I dreamt of finding a place spacious enough for quilt retreats. That dream came true when I found Rosa Mountain House nestled in the heart of the ancient mountains.
Since then, I have enjoyed welcoming quilters into a relaxed atmosphere, and providing them with workspace, lodging, and delicious home cooked meals, so that guests can fully enjoy their quilting weekends. This is what Rosa Mountain House is all about.
Please take a moment to look over the website. A brochure can be saved to your computer or printed out to share with friends on the brochure page. The current schedule of retreats will be found here. Photos are on the photo gallery page. Any questions you might have about the retreats are welcome and will be promptly answered.
I hope you will enjoy many peaceful quilting hours at Rosa Mountain House.
“Quilt retreats at the beautiful Rosa Mountain House always make my spirits soar. I feel so pampered! My idea of a vacation is sharing with other quilters Pat’s superb meals, her lovely home with its 360–degree mountain vistas, and sewing, laughing, quilting together.”
— Martha, member of The Quilters Guild of Brooklyn
