In the Fall, the Back Porch quilt shop of Detroit Lakes area has held a quilting retreat at Maplelag. This year they had a spring retreat. Participants enjoy quilting of course, home cooked meals along with relaxation time in the spa area including massages… and a few folks on the trails for some spring skiing! If you would like to take part in a future quilting retreat, please contact us at Maplelag.
