Chicago Create Retreat registration is open now!

The Create Retreat class info is up on the website and you can register now to take 5 days of fabulous mixed media and artquilt themed classes. The retreat is going to be located in Lisle, Illinois, which is a suburb southwest of Chicago. You can fly into Midway (a smaller airport) or O’Hare, it’s about the same distance from either.

I will be teaching two classes: Painting Fabric for Whole Cloth Quilts and Magical Metal Altars.

Painting Fabric for Whole Cloth Quilts (Wed, Aug 24, 6 hours)
Magical Metal Altars (Thur, Aug 25, 6 hours)

Both my classes have pretty small supply lists, which is always good when you are traveling by plane. I will be supplying the paint, fabric and metal, you bring paint brushes, rinse water containers, a paint tray and a few other things for the Altars class. The website shows the supply list for each class. For both classes, I will provide patterns to work from if you want to concentrate on learning new techniques or you can bring your own designs to work with.

There are many wonderful teachers you’ll recognize from the pages of Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines and many teachers from last summer are making a return this year, check out this great class line up.

Last year was a blast, click here, if you want to check out what it was like. I hope to see you there!

    Oooo I hope I can make it this year! I went to school is Lisle.

    Incidentally, if anyone is coming from a distance and can fly into Midway instead of O’Hare, do it. Being smaller, it is easier to navigate and get out of Midway.

  2. I agree Jen, I always fly out of Midway if I can.
