About Alford Inn Quilt Shoppe & Retreat Inn

Alford Inn is a quilt shop and retreat facility located in a quaint little north Texas town, Van Alstyne. Our quilt shop offers quilters and sewers a place to browse for the perfect fabric, pattern or notion for their latest project.

Our shoppe and retreat inn, located in a  beautiful old Victorian house, will give you the warm feeling of home.

The Family

We have plenty of space and the facilities for you to get together with your friends to enjoy your hobby together, at your private

retreat. We also schedule specialty retreats and classes for the sewing or quilting enthusiast. Our goal is to meet your sewing and quilting needs and to give you a place to meet other like-minded people, while doing what you love.

For those of you who are a quilt-piecer or just need that t-shirt quilt created, we offer longarm quilting services. We would be happy to give your quilt project that final step needed to make it complete.

For the quilt lover, we are also a vendor of all Handi-Quilter longarm machines. We have supplied you with a description and videos explaining each of the machines. We would be happy to give a demo anytime. Visit our Handi-Quilter page to

see all of your buying options.

We will be offering an online shop soon. Our goal is to always be able to supply your quilting or sewing needs.

Please take this opportunity to browse our classes, events, or longarm quilting page. We also offer a newsletter, facebook and our blog to keep you informed of new products, classes, and specials.

Thank you for visiting Alford Inn Quilt Shoppe and Retreat Inn.
