I’ve been to several sewing retreats – Sewing Summit (twice), QuiltCon, Camp Stitchalot (back when it was called Quilt Camp), and weekends here and there with friends. They are always so much fun, but I was never lucky enough to attend one here in Chicago. Until now!
Sewtopia Retreat recently announced their next event would be in downtown Chicago next April 16th – 19th, 2015. And what an awesome location. I’ve driven by The Drake more times than I can count. It’s right next to Lake Michigan and once I actually saw the filming of a movie there, the giant cameras pointed in through a window.
Latif is one of the cofounders of the LA Modern Quilt Guild and known for her use of curves and color. Latif will be teaching her new quilt pattern, Molehills.
I’m definitely going to need some hand holding as I make this!
Rita is coming over from Australia. Her blog is always so bright, fresh and she seems to whip out a new quilt every week! I’m always in awe of her style and attention to detail (and hopefully it will rub off on me as we are in the room together!)
Rita will be teaching the Kansas Dugout block and help us all not to dread sewing Y-Seams.
