We were going to use this page to gush about how much we love each and every one of our customers but the page ended up being a mile long! :)

So here are some of the wonderful things our customers are saying about us!

The quilt(s) you made for my brothers and sisters and I are undeniably the most precious treasure we have ever received. For all of those out there who have lost a parent or loved one and want a special memory I would wholeheartedly state don’t throw away or give away their clothing. Take the items and give to you and have you make and your girls make a lasting memory. We all love our quilts and thank you so much for coming into our lives with such a great suggestion.

With Love, Debra, Cheryl, Tammy, Bruce, Becky, Elizabeth & Erika


Great place to meet, sew, laugh, sew, eat, sew. Everything is lovely, welcoming, and ready for us to sew and have fun. The bedrooms are great when you need to crash for some rest.



“As someone who knew Deb when her business was just a dream, and watched her as Moonlight SS & Sisters Retreat blossomed, I love all that this new business has to offer. It’s a great location right across from the courthouse square in West Union and the colorful decor will put a smile on your face. It’s so much more than just a place to retreat with your favorite craft & friends. Deb continually strives to provide educational and entertaining workshops that teach new skills/hobbies. From the chocolates on your pillow where you sleep, to the wide array of coffee flavors brewed up in the Keurig coffeemaker, you’ll feel pampered and relaxed during your retreat experience. The new friends you’ll make will become part of your Sisterhood and soon you’ll be wanting to plan your own unique retreat experience!”

“I have been fortunate enough to have spent several weekends, retreating at Deb’s MSS & SR and have had a wonderful experience every time. The sewing/work space is very large and well arranged with tables, comfortable task chairs, display walls, ironing stations and cutting locations. The kitchen space is up-to-the-minute modern and complete. Deb has a wonderful sense of decor to make her rooms very warm, cozy and welcoming. The upstairs bed rooms have very comfortable beds, 3 baths, and beautiful quilts. I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying their stay to the fullest. It’s a great place to unwind and relax. I have also attended some of the knitting and crafting classes that Deb has offered. Such fun!!! This is such a fun, comforting place to spend time. Thanks, Deb, for providing the MSS & SR for all of us here in Northeast Iowa and surrounding states.”

“What a great experience to stitch and stay at Moonlight Stitching Studio and Sisters Retreat Center! Love the large, open room for stitching which provides such a warm, accepting atmosphere for all levels of stitchers, with all the amenities you could ask for at your fingertips! And the overnight accommodations are so charming and comfortable! The only good thing about living so far away is that I get to stay overnight when I do come! Reasonable rates, also. Deb hit the nail on the head (or hit the ditch with the stitch) when she created Moonlight Stitching Studio and Sisters Retreat Center!!!
I’m looking forward to seeing you again in January!!!”



“Who knew that four years ago, when I met Deb, that I would be hooked on quilting in the MOONLIGHT, STITCHING in a beautiful STUDIO with so many quilt SISTERS, laughing, eating, ripping seams, cutting, ironing, sharing, naps, messages, and always a chance to repeat a RETREAT!! Thank You Deb for inviting me to share in your dream… I’m lovin it!!”



“Love it! Love It!! LOVE IT!!!! Moonlight Stitching Studio is the greatest place to do all of your sewing and crafting. The studio is very spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The atmosphere is so relaxed and just plain fun! Deb is such a great source of knowledge and she is always there with a helping hand. I don’t know how she gets her own things done because she is always assisting someone. I cannot believe how much I get done when I spend a day at the shop….It is awesome!!”
