Hotels Info for Quilt Congress

We’ve been asked if there is an official congress hotel. There is not. The good news: congress central is located in central Rogers at Southside Church of Christ, 919 S. Dixieland Road. That’s just east of the shopping/entertainment district in west Rogers and just west of Historic Downtown Rogers which is home to many fine restaurants and stores. The other good news: there is no Razorback game on congress weekend and War Eagle Fair and Bike, Blues BBQ will be over, so hotel rooms should be plentiful and well priced.
Here is a list of hotels within a couple of miles of congress central:
Embassy Suites Northwest Arkansas
Aloft Hotel
Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites
Hampton Inn
Residence Inn
Candlewood Suites
Fairfield Inn and Suites
Country Inn & Suites
Hyatt Place
Homewood Suites

Plan on coming early and staying an extra day. You don’t want to miss the places like Crystal Bridges. We will be detailing some of our favorite places over the next few weeks.  See all info concerning Quilt Congress here

Just a quick post to let you know that Q.U.I.L.T. is no longer sponsoring a retreat in October.  However, Liz Ewing has stepped up and will be offering an opportunity for those of you who love to attend those retreats.  She is still in the planning stages, but it looks to be taking place in Oklahoma.  If you are interested in attending this new retreat, please contact Liz individually for information and details.
