Flower Making Retreat

Oct. 12, 13, 14 at Big Oak Meadows Retreat Center

Join Cindy of Quilter’s Fancy for a weekend of dimensional flowermaking and create a Victorian wreath suitable for a 12-inch or 16-inch finished quilt block for an album quilt. We will turn fabric and silk ribbon into pansies, roses, bleeding heart, lilac, wildflowers, three-dimensional leaves, vines, and other flowers. Each students wreath will have its own look as we study design and how to choose color. Each student will build the color of their wreath and choose ribbon kit colors in class to their liking.

All class and kit fees for 10 hours of class instruction, housing and food are included for $225 per person. We will retreat to the peaceful countryside just 15 minutes from Quilter’s Fancy to the beauty of Big Oak Meadows Retreat Center.

Quilter's Fancy Retreat will include room for stitchers to Sit N Sew on their own projects for the weekend. Housing and food will be provided for a cost of $115.
