Bag Workshop Details

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago we will be hosting a bag workshop in October. We have finalized the projects, so continue reading to see what they are along with the rest of the details.
This will be a 3 day event that will run Thursday, October 18, Friday, October 19, and Saturday, October 20. 
On Thursday, Esther and I will be teaching the Retreat Bag by Emmaline, and we will have some different options for adding pockets and straps. There is two sizes available for this pattern. There are also a couple designer patterns that feature the Bag Frames to choose from instead of the Retreat Bag.
Friday and Saturday, Tara Sinclair from UhOh Creations will be coming to make two bags with us. One is the Cottonwood Boho Bag by GML Designs and the other is the Cottonwood Pouch by Serial Bag Maker. The Bag has a few different size options and features 2 exterior pockets, as well as an interior zip pocket and an adjustable cross body strap. The Pouch has a zip top, 8 credit card slots, hidden slip pocket and interior zipper pocket. 
The combinations of fabrics and hardware will make your creations unique to you.
The price is $125 for all three days of instruction and will also include 3 meals as well as beverages and snacks. All supplies will be an additional cost, and will need to be purchased from Chicken Feed Quilts. 
Friday evening (October 19) Tara Sinclair will also be doing a trunk show. Come join us to see some incredible bags and have dessert at the same time. Cost to attend this is $20. Even if you don't make bags this will be fun to attend.
To go along with this workshop we will also be starting the Bag Of The Month Club in September. It will be a seven month club running September through April and skipping January. We will get together one day a month and work on a bag together. Each month will be a different type of bag from a different designer. Esther and I are working on the samples so that you can see which projects we will be doing. So far it looks like we have a project pouch, a backpack, a tote bag,  a ruler holder, a handbag and we are still deciding on a wallet and a couple other patterns that we are waiting to be released to the public. 
This Club will be $150 to join. All patterns and supplies that are needed will be an additional cost.
If you sign up for both the workshop and the Bag of the Month Club before August 1st or before the workshop is full, whichever comes first, you will save $25. 
Spots are very limited, and several seats are already spoken for, so we are asking that you pay a 50% deposit to hold your place.
Sign up quickly if you want in on what is promising to be an exciting weekend. You can sign up by phoning our store, sending us an email, or even better coming in. If you sign up through email or phone you will need to send us an interac e-transfer or credit card for the deposit.
Come see us next weekend at the Cactus Rose Quilt Club Quilt Show. It is being held at the Medicine Hat Curling Club, Friday, June 8, 12-8pm and Saturday, June 9 from 10am-5pm. Admission is $5.
