About Monique

For 10 years, Monique Jacobs has come to Elkton to lead us in quiltspiration! She’s taught us card tricks, dazzled us with diamonds & twinkling stars, and made sure our points were nothing less than perfect.

As a ruler, pattern, and fabric designer, Monique always has new wisdom to impart. In addition to her own pattern line, Open Gate Quilts, her designs are frequently seen in our favorite quilt magazines. Her most recent project was a dog bed in the spring 2019 issue of Quilts & More magazine. Her eye catching designs can also be found in kit form on Bluprint (formerly Craftsy). And if that doesn’t keep her busy enough, you can find Monique and her charming assistants Mark, Tillie, & Zed on her Facebook live posts.

We’ve learned so much from Monique over the years, and what we love about her is that she always has a new trick up her sleeve. There’s still so much more crafting to do! Hope to see you at the TENTH annual Monique retreat!

WHAT’S NEW: YOUR FEEDBACK IN ACTION

What I hear most from my quilting friends is that they have so many UFO projects in progress. After 10 years of Monique retreats, we believe it! Taking this feedback into consideration, Monique and I have decided to let YOU choose your class. Bring a project, and Monique will help you. Bring an Open Gate project from a previous retreat that you have yet to finish, a new kit from Bluprint (formerly Craftsy) that has caught your eye, or any quilt project you have underway that you need help with. Whichever quilting adventure you choose, let this milestone retreat be a celebration of the creativity and friendship we have all shared with one another.
