It’s really happening!

Yes, finally, I am off  to Williamsburg to teach at the Academy of Applique.  This will be my second year teaching after having attended as a student.  The kits are cut…the patterns are ready…but I haven’t packed any clothes yet.  That can wait til tonight

Our very first Applique Retreat is approaching very quickly.  The first Retreat filled up very quickly so I have booked another Retreat.  I have a few spots left and would love to have you join us for some stitching, eating and some much needed time just to relax…hopefully!  I can hardly wait!

Here are the details of the second Retreat.  If you are interest, please contact me right away….. Thanks to everyone who signed up for my first Applique Retreat which will be held in March at Fireside Retreat in Orillia.  The response was so positive that I have booked a second Retreat!  The dates for the second Retreat are April 20-22 (Friday-Sunday).  All meals will be included, starting with dinner on Friday night.  This Retreat is a perfect opportunity to learn the method I use for all of my applique projects.  It is also a perfect time to catch up on your own applique projects and to be inspired by other students. Your fee of $400.00 includes your accommodation, all meals, your project kit and pattern. I am limiting this class to 7, so if you are interested please contact me at

As part of your fee, you will receive the pattern and fabric for this lovely block, which I will be teaching at both Retreats, although there will also be time for you to work on your own projects.  This block is the first in a series I am having designed by Marilyn at MT Designs that will depict Canadian birds and flowers.  I must confess, I love this block!

That’s all for now…I really must go an pack some clothes…and my toothbrush:)

Til next time…

  2. Good luck in Williamsburg. I am thrilled you are teaching there. I love all you do and how you continue to inspire so many. I will look at the information on your retreat. It sounds fun. I would need to know the airport to fly into.
    Have fun with Barbara Blanton.
