Thursday, November 30 to Sunday, December 3, 2023

At the Hilton Garden Inn of Rockford, IL, 7675 Walton Street, Rockford, IL. 

(815) 229-3322 


 2022 Recap

By George, I think we got it.  We comfortably fit 50 quilters with plenty of room to walk around,etc.  Hilton has been very good to us in holding the sleep rooms rates low and they are always willing to meet all of our requests.    


For those reasons, we are keeping this set up!


2023 Details

We will be at the Hilton Garden Inn at 7675 Walton Street, Rockford.  This event is limited to no more than 50 people.  If you participated in the previous year, you have first dibs at a seat in 2023.  If I don’t fill all 50 seats by the first deadline, I will open the invitation to others. 



We can accommodate a maximum of 50 quilters.

  • The table space cost is $65.
  • Each person will have their own 6 ft table.
  • Once the first 50 people are fully registered, I will start a waiting list should there be a cancellation.
  • First dibs goes to previous participants.


Room Rates

The room rates are $109 per night for a standard room with two queen beds or $109 for a King. 

 There is a block of rooms on reserve.  If they run out, please let me know. 

 Each room has a microwave and bar-size refrigerator for your convenience.


One person in the room will need to contact the Hilton Garden Inn and reserve the room with a credit card.  Ask for The Quilt Escape room rate.  The phone number is (815) 229-3322. 

 You must book no later than October 27, 2023 to receive this rate.



The Hilton offers "made to order" breakfast.  It runs from 7 am to noon on the weekends.  You could make this your brunch and have it serve as two meals, if you desire.


They also offer a dinner menu with a variety of options from soup and salad to sandwiches to full entrees.  The cost varies from about $25-$40.  There is always a fish option and a meat option on the entrees.
