Alegre Retreat History

Alegre Retreat, launched by Katie Pasquini Masopust in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1994, is the premier conference for devotees of the fabric arts, enabling art quilters to come together to learn and share their expertise and comraderie.  Each year, dozens of quilting enthusiasts migrate to Gateway Canyons Resort, a stunning and inspiring oasis one hour south of Grand Junction, Colorado, to fulfill Pasquini Masopust’s goal of showcasing the variety of methods and specialties in this rich branch of the fabric arts.
