Quilting, Crafting and Memory Making at Its Finest
Located along the peaceful banks of the Mississippi, Linden Hill Historical Event Center is Central Minnesota’s premier venue for crafting, quilting and scrapbooking retreats.

Whether you belong to a club or are just looking to get old friends together for a weekend, our unique setting provides inspiration, relaxation and the very best in hospitality.

Quilting groups, large and small, will enjoy the oversized work spaces — both individual stations and common areas to setup large projects for multiple quilters to work on at one time. From piece quilting to machine quilting, Linden Hill has the accommodations to suit your group’s specific quilting needs. Since every quilter gets their own work station with plenty of space to spread out, everyone is able to leave their sewing machines and quilting projects set up for the duration of the retreat. Crafters and quilters who opt to stay up late can comfortably work into the night without interfering with those who choose to retire early.
