Time to take a breather from your busy schedule, ’roundup all the patchwork’ and have some fun with other quilters.
Back by popular demand! I’m holding another amazing craft retreat – this time with the theme of SPRING.
We’ll dive into two projects over two days, not to mention a few surprises as well!
NOTE: Sale price good thru Friday, March 3rd, 11:59 pm PT.
LOCATION: ONLINE!! 100% virtual. No packing, gas or hauling supplies needed. Join me in your favorite sewing room spot!
DATES and TIMES: Thursday evening, May 4th from 6-8 pm, Friday and Saturday, May 5th and 6th 11 a.m.-4 pm. (demos are the first hour of each session) and 6-7pm evening gathering
This will be held via Zoom, and as always – you do not have be there – you will receive the links so you can watch at your leisure. These demos and projects are great for all skill levels.
WHERE: Private for Retreaters only Facebook Group
WHAT’S INCLUDED: The price includes a fun retreat box containing a kit for each project, plus some other goodies!
Here are the two projects:
Stellar Star Hoop Quilt
Make your own hoop quilt to display on your wall, or finish it another way for a mug rug. Either way, you’ll be guided through the process of sewing the pattern, placing it in the hoop and if you want, exploring big quilting stitches to embellish or add to your quilt.
You’ll learn how to make your beautiful stitches into a cute pincushion that features sides that open up for additional pin keeping.
About the Theme
This year since we are beginning the retreat on May 4th (May the 4th be with you) I thought it would be fun to do a little play on that theme.
“Stellar Quilter” is our theme.
This theme is the focus of our retreat kits, activities as well as our guest demo and ‘stellar’ trunk show.
No matter your experience in quilting – from beginner to advanced, you can enjoy the activities and become a ‘Stellar Quilter’.
Our quilt retreat is focused on YOU! We want you to come to relax and enjoy each other’s company, virtually. (this is a sleep in your own bed retreat). We will only have one scheduled trunk show and demo at this retreat – so you’ll be free to work on projects that you have in progress, or start a new one! We will do some make-and-take activities in the evenings and will provide kits for these.
Meet Our Guest:
Andi – True Blue Quilts
