Super Duper Fall Color Extravaganza Quilt Retreat -- Mercer WI

An e-mail came in the other day with a pretty good suggestion. The writer said," You always tell us about the good stuff after it's over. Can you give us a heads up once in a while?"

So here's your advance notice about a retreat I'm teaching later this month. It's to be held at the edge of Spider Lake at Pine Forest Lodge in Mercer WI, which bills itself as "the loon capital of the world"! So if you are a bird watcher, this is probably the place to be! Actually, I think we picked the dates thinking that the fall colors would be at their very best and that it would be a beautiful place to spend a couple days making friends, sewing and having fun.....

Here are a few pictures of the resort:

It looks like such a lovely place -- I just can't wait to be there! And it is my understanding that I can even dress casually, rather than having to wear teacher clothes -- extra added bonus!

The cost of the retreat is $225 per person (+ tax), which includes lodging for Friday and Saturday nights, September 24th and 25th, all your food, and both classes that I am teaching. If you want to come up for a night or two before or after the retreat, extra nights are available for only $25, a special price available to retreaters.

Saturday's class is "Positive/Negative: Adding Color to Trapunto by Machine". For those of you who have been following my facebook thread on the sample lost in Chicago, this is the one that I am in the process of re-making. It is 26" square and features color in the foreground in two of the trapunto blocks; the other two blocks have the color in the background.

Sunday's class is the Halloween applique wall hanging shown above; we'll be doing faced applique, reverse applique and couching in this workshop. If you make this, you'll have something cute to display for Halloween!

The co-sponsor of The Super Duper Fall Color Extravaganza Quilt Retreat is Pamella's Place in Genesee Depot WI. Pam will be bringing notions, Bernina 440 sewing machines and kits to the retreat.

To get more information about the retreat or to sign up, you can call or e-mail Cheri Stratte at the resort: (ph: 715-476-2241) or contact Pam at Pamella's Place.

Hope to see you there!
