This year’s Handmade Holiday Retreat is scheduled for November 11 – 13, Friday – Sunday at my studio in the Hungerford. We will be making five different stand-alone gift items again this year. At this fun weekend retreat you can come Friday night and set up your work station for the entire weekend. After some holiday snacks (you’ll get the recipes), we will make an easy sewn project, an infinity scarf. This makes a perfect gift for the holidays. The Friday night session runs from 6 – 9 p.m. You will be able to leave your work station set up overnight at the studio.

Then return Saturday morning at 10 a.m. for a full day of sewing. After coffee and a continental breakfast, we will be making a Roll-and-Go Placemat and Napkin. This a great set to pack with your lunch for work or you can make a set of four for a wonderful handmade holiday gift, great for picnics or any meal on the go. We will break for a box lunch at 1 p.m. and then continue in the afternoon by making an easy Seminole table runner. All patterns and meals for the weekend retreat will be included in the low cost of just $99 per person. Saturday’s class will end at 5 p.m.

Then return on Sunday for the final day of your Handmade Holiday Retreat at 10 a.m. again. We will begin Sunday by making a large totebag using canvas and a leather-like product called Kraft-Tex. After a nice brunch, we conclude the retreat by making an oil cloth coin purse with attached key chain. The coin purse is large enough for a driver’s license, credit card and some cash. Great to grab when you don’t want to carry a purse. All fabrics, including Kraft-Tex and canvas are available for purchase at my studio. I will also have kits available for purchase to make the oil-cloth coin purses, complete with all hardware needed to make these look professional. Before leaving on Sunday at 5 p.m., we will have a show & tell where you can share your finished projects and show another handmade item you have made over the past year.
