Virtual Retreat January 2021

 We are so excited to announce that in January we are going to be hosting a Virtual Retreat. You can join in from the comfort and safety of your own home! The retreat will run January 21-23.

There are only 2 requirements that you need to meet to join in on the fun. The first is you need to have access to either Zoom Meetings or Facebook, and the second is that you buy the kit from our shop. 

The Project we will be making will be a mystery but sneak peeks will be shown on Social Media up until the start of the event.

The Retreat will start Thursday, January 21 at 6pm with an introduction to the event and project reveal.

The retreat will end Saturday, January 23 at 3pm after 2 days of sewing and games.

During the retreat there will be tutorials from Esther, Kayla and Carrie, games to play and progress check-ins all via Zoom Meetings and a Private Facebook Group.

As I said earlier the project will be a mystery but we will be putting up some sneak peeks on Social Media. I can tell you that there are two size options that you can choose from, either a lap/twin or queen/king sized project. You will need to decide what size you would like to do when you sign up for the event. 

After you register we will send you a Questionnaire to fill out with a list of questions about your favorite prints, colors, backgrounds you like, what precuts you like to work with, and what your favorite designers are. This will help us make a custom kit just for you for the event!

Your Project Kit will include: Either Moda or Art Gallery Fabrics to make the quilt top and binding, a spool of Aurifil Thread that coordinates to your fabrics and the book needed to make the quilt. The kit will be ready for pickup

Everyone that "attends" the event will receive a Goody Bag sponsored by our distributors. 

There is also a gift basket to win from our shop, just by registering for the event you will get added to the draw, but there will be ways throughout the weekend to earn additional entries!

For all the locals that are "attending" we will have an optional $75 Food Package available to make your weekend even more relaxing. (Local refers to anyone willing to drive to our shop on Thursday, January 21 to pick up your meals)

We have partnered with Chef Stella from Lethbridge and The Chrysalis Cafe from Coaldale for the food packages. 

The Food Package will contain:

Wine and Cheese Plate for the kick off evening

2 Breakfast Meals, 1 for Friday Morning and one for Saturday Morning

1 Supper Meal for Friday Evening. This meal will be prepared and frozen so you will need to reheat it. 

Some added snacks and beverages for the weekend. 

Supply List and Questionnaires will be sent out to all those that register

Signup for this event ends January 7th so we have time to put together the kits. 

You can sign up for the event here 

Esther, Carrie and I are so excited for this event and hope that many of you will join us for it!
