Quilting in the Snow
Chena Hot Springs Resort
 
A two and a half day weekend retreat held at Chena Hot Springs Resort. Guild members enjoy classes and relaxation as they get away to do what they enjoy most - quilting, eating, and socializing - away from the demands of home.

Supplies list for Friday night bag class
  • one placemat
  • sewing supplies (scissors, thread, pins, needles, etc.)
  • sewing machine (you really do need to do this by machine... not that anyone else worries about this, but I ALWAYS want to sew by hand!)
  • trims: fancy buttons, pre-sewn beaded trim (Walmart or JoAnn's, Snow Goose); again, experiment! Do you have some lace you didn't know what to do with, or a fragment of fabric that's just too cool to toss? A piece of heavy costume jewelry would be awesome on a heavier weight mat; what about a pearl necklace handle? Think FUN!
  • velcro or a button for closure
  • ribbon or rattail cord for a strap

Placemats:
Value Village has them for $0.69 and up. Try to get the medium weight placemats; the heavier ones might be hard to sew through, and the light weight ones don't have enough body so that you can carry things in them. But if you see one you really like and you think it's the wrong weight, try it anyway! Don't be afraid to experiment; these are SO easy to make and if you get a placemat from Value Village, it's plenty cheap enough for experiments. I will have a number of different designs at Chena Hot Springs, so bring several placemats if you like. These take literally 10 minutes to make!
A quiet place for spreading out quilts, handsewing, and visiting
Not every moment was spent sewing...
Babs and Elizabeth were hard to catch!
