There are so many ways to enjoy Alegre Retreat, the premier art quilt conference at Gateway Canyons Resort. Katie Pasquini Masopust wants to enable all who wish to participate a chance to experience this exceptional quilt retreat. She hopes that not only will Alegre Retreat provide an enriching experience for her committed quilters, but also that by reaching out more widely, Alegre Retreat will be able to broaden awareness of the fabric arts and deepen the quilting community.

Those who attended Alegre Retreat last year know to prepare for an unforgettable experience . . . first time attendees should expect to be wowed! Gateway Canyons, Colorado is a land of stunning views, magnificent rock formations and soul calming rivers. It is an area that has long inspired travelers, from the ancient Native American tribes that first settled there, to the pioneers of yesterday, and quilters of today. This setting, combined with the resort’s mission to celebrate the finest in Fiber Arts, makes Gateway Canyons the perfect host for the Alegre Retreat. You’ll also find all the pampering and/or adventures necessary to complete the perfect learning vacation!
