Today I want to share some information with you about our upcoming retreat in Texas. Paula and I are sponsoring a retreat at "And Sew It Began" Retreat house in LaPorte, TX in February 2017. We're hoping 14 of you will join us for 4 fun-filled days of quilting.
Here are the details and some pictures to get you started on thinking about this wonderful experience.

Your four days at the retreat include: 3 days of class instruction and sewing time, a day of retail therapy at Painted Pony 'n Quilts and antiquing, a trunk show, demos, and tips and techniques. RCQ will also have kits and patterns available for sale.
Paula will be teaching 2 new mini-quilts. Complete kits (fabrics for the top, backing and binding are exactly as featured in the sample) will be provided for both quilts.
|Little Bear Paw measures 34"x34" and is one of the new quilts in the RCQ Favorites #4 pattern and features fabric from Paula's new Indigo collection.|
|Star Formation measures 24"x24" and was originally designed for the Marcus Makers booth at Market. It features fabrics from Paula's Heritage Reds collection.|
|This is the 1930's room. Look at those adorable vintage crocheted dresses!|
|Ronda made the beautiful quilt hanging on the wall.|
|The RCQ room - that's our Carolina hanging on the wall and Long Road Home on the bed.|
|This is the spacious classroom.|
If you're like me and didn't have much of a Christmas list for the family, this is something you can tell them about! Deposit of $100 is due with the registration form and the remainder of the payment will be due by January 9, 2017.
We hope you'll be able to join us!
Today's laugh: I currently have a rather large bin of projects sitting in my sewing room - personal quilts, exchanges, future book quilts and 1 uncompleted business quilt. Paula knows about my bin, but doesn't know how much is in it any given time. The other day she asked if I was done with sewing for the year. I quickly listed what's in the bin and she responded - "Phew, I don't have to feed the beast!" She was worried I was going to tell her I needed something to sew and she just doesn't have time right now to design a quilt and pick fabric for it! The beast is full - at this time!!
Until next time, happy quilting,
