Located in historic downtown Spring Hill, KS, The Creative Place is close to the Kansas City metropolitan area. Whether it is quilting, scrapbooking, stamping, rug-hooking, sewing, knitting, writing, painting, sketching, music-making or some other type of artistic retreat, our multi-purpose retreat center was designed with you in mind. Our facility is 4,500 square feet with 2,000 square feet dedicated to our arts studio. The arts studio/meeting area boasts fantastic lighting and ample room to pursue your creative passion. In addition, The Creative Place has areas where you can fix a snack or a meal, relax, read a book or take a nap. With just the right mix of inclusion and privacy, The Creative Place is a great place to retreat. Just minutes from the city, you’ll find yourself immersed in a small-town setting, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Yet, we are conveniently located 15 minutes from Olathe, KS and 30-45 minutes from most of Kansas City, from Lawrence, and many surrounding communities.
While retreating at The Creative Place, you can venture out and visit quaint shops and antique stores in neighboring towns. For our quilters, there is The Quilted Sunflower quilt shop right across the street, and there are literally dozens of other wonderful quilt shops within 30-60 minutes’ drive, nearby in all directions. For our scrapbookers, stampers, and artists, there are area stores you will enjoy, too! See our interactive map for locations and contact information.
