The Rural Thimble
The Rural Thimble Quilt Retreat
Surround yourself with creative people at The Rural Thimble, an exciting new quilt retreat center a stone’s throw away from Miller’s Dry Goods, Holmes County’s first fabric and quilt shop. Get together with friends and let your imagination be crafted into a new reality. Housed in a newly remodeled, early 20th Century farmhouse, you’ll experience all the modern conveniences with that small town welcome in Charm, the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country.
The sewing and crafting area is set up with ten stations, with each station consisting of one 5ft table, comfortable swivel chair, 3 drawer project cart, wastebasket and extension cord, along with additional amenities
On the main floor: one bedroom with 2 twin beds, large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower, additional ½ bath, washer & dryer.
Bring your own food and enjoy the fully equipped kitchen, with room for all around the beautiful hand-crafted dining room table.
Take a break in the living room area with comfy chairs and a queen size sleeper sofa, complete with a flat screen satellite tv.
Upstairs you’ll find 3 additional bedrooms. Two of the rooms have 2 twin beds, the other one has 2 twins and 1 queen. There is also a bathroom upstairs with a tub/shower combo and a separate sink/vanity area.
Two inviting porches complete the house, both furnished with rocking chairs.
The retreat is wheelchair accessible, linens and towels are provided. It has free wifi and central air conditioning. Accommodations are for 10-12. There are no pets allowed, and smoking is only permitted outside.

Our group LOVES The Rural Thimble as a scrapbooking retreat. It is truly the best place we stayed! It is very clean, small details have already been thought out for guests (from kitchen supplies to power cords in the main room), and it is located in a beautiful Amish Country. We love that you can unload with ease at the front door (no steps) and that there is at least one bedroom located on the man floor (for handicapped guests). Thanks for creating a special place for our annual fun!!
