The Calico Cove
Jodie Justice of Guntersville has opened the Calico Cove, a quilting venue, in the Kennamer Cove area of Grant Mountain and Woodville. Jodie said opening the Calico Cove cottage is a dream come true. Jodie has been quilting for 20 years and have always wanted to be in the industry in some capacity. She opened the Calico Cove cottage in February 2021. She said “God opened up the perfect opportunity when this cottage became available for us to renovate into a quilting retreat! We want this place to be a respite from the world for everyone who enters. For you to be refreshed and free from the pull of work. We want you to be able to create and rejuvenate! That is our mission.”
Jodie said the Calico Cove cottage was created for quilters in mind, but it is also a great retreat get-away for other small groups. It’s a place where people can have quilting parties or even beginner quilting classes. Jodie said, it’s also a perfect venue to have other arts and crafts retreats like knitting and painting. Jodie has held bible study classes there too. The Calico Cove cottage is also the perfect quiet place to have your one-day small business retreat. They have totally renovated the house and it is a fully functional house with a kitchen with all the cooking items to cook meals and a laundry room. It sleeps 6 people for overnight stays and can host up to 10 people for day classes and conferences. They even have a small quilting shop for things you may have forgotten
