Quilting Retreats

I'm up early this morning getting ready for a Two Wacky Women quilting retreat this weekend. As you may or may not know, my friend Marilyn and I are partners in a quilt related business called Two Wacky Women. We vend at quilt shows, develop and publish our own line of patterns as well as host retreats of our own and facilitate retreats for others. This weekend is a TWW retreat where everyone is encourage to work on their own projects although many of them will be making my "Magnolia Lane" quilt.

So enough about this weekend (it's been sold out for quite awhile), but we still have a little bit of room in our May 22 - 24, 2009 machine quilting retreat with Frances Moore. I own two Frances Moore quilts (I like to say I'm a Frances Moore collector). Both of these quilts were purchased by me at a quilt guild auction. Here's one of the quilts. Unfortunately you can't really see the quilting. This is the second retreat we have facilitated for Frances and at the first retreat I was able to participate in the class. What you need to know is that I'm a very good piecer but an awful machine quilter. Now I'm not saying I'm a great machine quilter yet but here's a sample of what I was able to accomplish after just a few days with Frances. The "Quilting by the Sea" machine quilting retreat with Frances Moore will be held in San Clemente, California, May 22 - 24, 2009 and is very affordable. We'd love to have you join us. For additional information follow the links at our retreat page.

I'll be sending updates from this weekends retreat, so stay tuned.
Happy Quilting!
