Handmade Holiday Retreat Filling Up Fast

Posted By on October 21, 2012

Be sure you stop by Jackie Lynn’s and sign up for the Handmade Holiday Retreat if you are planning on joining us on Friday, November 30, from 5 -11 p.m.  I now have the sample done for the guided project we will be making that night.  You can stop by the store to see it and pick up your supply list.  You’ll learn how to do simple faced-applique in this fast and easy class.  This runner has a nice modern quilt look…with lots of negative space (or background).  We’ll also talk some about what’s trendy now in free motion quilting and how to do some easy background quilting.  The lucky winners of the sign-up day kits won a kit to make this contemporary runner.

And the winners are:
Fran Allen-Fintel
Marsha Cyrana
Deb Fox
Shellee Williams-Allen

For those of you who have never never attended a Handmade Holiday Retreat, it’s a great treat to yourself.  For just $40, you get an easy class for a holiday runner, a catered dinner, and lots of extra little goodies, like directions for 12 easy last-minute projects that make nice holiday decorations or gifts.  We have a big show & tell and at the end of the night, a drawing for the samples of the 12 easy last0minute projects.  And if you are overwhelmed with holiday gift sewing, you can opt to spend the evening finishing up those project instead of working on the guided project.  We have a lot of fun and Jackie always treats us with a nice little sale especially for us.

So don’t delay if you plan to attend, because it’s filling up fast!
