Nancy's Quilting Divas Retreat – Orlando, FL

Check in time is 4:00 PM April 30th


The Floridays Resort Orlando is fabulous and is one of the top 10 resorts in the US. The affordable price includes sharing a 2 bedroom suite - full kitchen, dining room, living room with flat panel TV, 2 baths and balcony. A shared room is included in the price, but a private room is available. The suite arrangement not only gives you a lot of extra space, but it also gives you the opportunity to sit and relax with old friends or get to know your new suitemates. There is also a grand pool with lounge, café and marketplace.

If you require a ground floor room, it is important to let us know when you enroll as it may not be possible to change your room assignment at a later date. All floors have elevator access.  All other room requests will be considered, but cannot be absolutely guaranteed. Coming alone – let us know and we will try to match you with someone else looking for a roommate.


Includes four days of Nancy's instructions on a really cool thread painting project or bring your own project.  Each student will have a generous workspace and an easy-on-the-body chair with cushioned seat and back.  Barring scheduled events, the room will be available for free sewing from 4 pm to 10 pm and in the morning before class on request.


A 150+ store Premium outlet mall and numerous fine restaurants are within a short trolley or car ride.


Retreat fee includes lunch each day. For breakfast and dinner – each suite has a full kitchen and there is a café on site and plenty of popular restaurants nearby. Get together with your suitemates and bring breakfast supplies with you or located a half mile away is a major grocery store. Dinners have not been included because there are so many fabulous, popular restaurants nearby.

Package Rate Descriptions:

Suite - Each suite (see floor plan) consist of a master bedroom with a king size bed and a bath and a second bedroom with two double beds and a bath plus a living room, dinning room, kitchen, balcony and washer/dryer.

Student Shared Room 
– Choose this option to reserves one of the two beds in the second bedroom.

Student Private RoomChoose this option to reserve one of the two bedrooms. Bedrooms with king sized beds are limited and are therefore available on a first come, first served basis.  If a bedroom with a king sized bed is not available, a bedroom with 2 double beds will be substituted. PRIVATE BEDROOMS ARE SINGLE OCCUPANCY ONLY!

Day Student
- Choose this option if you do not need lodging.  However, having been to many retreats of my own, I have found that some of the best experiences of a retreat are the conversations and learning experiences found after hours.  



  1. Hubbies are welcome should they want to come along to play some golf or just to enjoy the Florida weather. Now while you feel that hubby is the most special person on earth (and I am sure he is) other suitemates might not want to share the same suite with a male counterpart. So if this is your situation, a Private Suite would be the solution.

  2. Private Suite – You would be reserving the entire 2 bedroom ( Up to 4 people: 2 double beds + 1 king size bed + 2 baths) or 3 bedroom ( Up to 6 people: 4 double beds + 1 king size bed + 2 baths) suite. This option would work if 2 couples are coming together or perhaps you are bringing the grand kids so Grandpa can take them to Disney.  Please contact us to take advantage of the special pricing reserved for our group.


Want to Stay Additional Days at the Resort to Enjoy the Orlando Attractions? The Resort has agreed to offer a discounted rate for up to 3 days before and/or 3 days after the Retreat. Please contact Nancy at [email protected] or the toll free number – 888-853-0975 – for details.
