Villa Maria Quilt Retreat -WEEKDAY Event - Double Occupancy

Join us in May for a Quilt Retreat at the Villa Maria - currently accepting double occupancy reservations. May open to single in May.

What Wonderful Wool!

There are so many great new designs for wool in the market. Let's sit together and learn the best way to make your masterpiece come to life. We will be working on a journal cover with beautiful floral arrangements. Chose between two great designs, and use the journal for documenting your thoughts, or maybe taking notes on all the great techniques and ideas shared in the class. All you need to bring is your scissors. Kits will be available for the balance of the project!

Redwork Techniques and Inspiration

Dawn Eck will guide you through all the information you need to do beautiful redwork, bluework, blackwork, whichever inspires you. From fabric selection, threads, needles, design transfer, and stitching through piecing into a complete quilt top, you will learn all the basics of this fabulous craft. Lunch will be included in the class fee.
