You are all Invited.......

Do you live in Utah or will you be in our area on November 12, 2010? Even if you are an hour or so drive from northern Utah county you will want to pay attention to this post. And there is a giveaway attached to this post so continue reading to the bottom.
Please come meet me and join the fun in our Quilter's Harvest on Saturday November 12, 2010 hosted by Alpine Quilt Retreats. You won't want to miss the enjoyable activities and ideas for Christmas gifts and more. Other than Alpine Quilt Retreats, shops sponsoring our event and participating in classes are: Just Sew in Highland, Utah, Broadbent's in Lehi, Utah, The Quilting Cottage in American Fork, Utah and Dear Lizzie in Highland, Utah. Tickets are $20.00 that include all classes, supplies and treats.
Space is limited for classes and events. I'm teaching in Group A and we'll be making covered button rings. They are easy and fun. You can pick out your fussy cut object to place on the button from an assortment of my fabrics. It is a great idea for Christmas. If you mention my blog to me at the class I'll give you a kit for free to make an extra button ring. I'll be teaching at the Alpine Quilt Retreat location and you'll be able to see the really lovely arrangements Syd has made for retreats and classes.

We have real stars for teachers: Laura Potter my famous chef and neighbor (you won't want to miss her cooking demo), sweet blogger and teacher Mel Lawrence, fun and talented Amber Johnson of Just Sew, amazing and wise Suzanne Lawrence from Quilting Cottage, the best applique teacher around Laurel Verhaaren of Broadbent's, and the incredible designer and quilter Amanda Herring of Riley Blake Fabric (she designs the Quilted Fish). I'm really excited to be associated with these ladies. The amount of talent in our area is astounding and these women are some of the best of the best.

Alpine Quilt Retreats is giving away one free ticket to this event. Leave a comment saying you want to come and that you live close enough to attend and you will be entered in the giveaway. I will post the winner of the ticket on Friday.

All the information, photos of projects, lists of classes and times are all found at the Quilter's Harvest page. In addition to the mini classes you can visit the quilt stores for Christmas ideas and Dear Lizzie for early shopping or just browsing. It will be a great fall day to get out and associate with wonderful women doing what we love.

I am so glad I live in the area. What a great give away. I was wondering when this little retreat was. Thanks for posting about it and making my day. Now I just have to check the calendar. You know how that goes? Hopefully though. I love the rings you will be teaching. See you soon, I hope.

I'm so bummed! I'm too far away...but I still just wanted to comment and let you know how jealous I am...and that I think your rings are adorable! I might just have to struggle through figuring out how to make a couple on my own. ;) I have a niece whom I think these would be perfect for! :)

This sounds like so much fun, but to tell you the truth, Nanette, I wouldn't even be able to point out where Utah is on the map, so I guess I live way too far away )o:
Lots and lots of fun!

syocom said...

I want to come that would be so much fun. I live just a few miles away.

Becky said...

I would love to come to the retreat, and I live in Utah County as well! I would convince my MIL to come as well, but I think she will be out of town that weekend.

Mary Lou Weidman said...

OH I too wish I lived close. I need an excuse to be with fun people and to make those adorable rings! I am always looking for things I can make and give away at my retreats...this looks easier than a tiara or bag! Love your blog, your ideas, your color sense-keep up the good work!

Kari @ Fresh Cut Quilts said...

Not so sure I qualify to enter- but oh how I would love to attend your class at the retreat. And I am close enough to go--pick me!

Kara said...

Isn't living in the Salt Lake Valley wonderful when something like this comes up!? I'm not sure I should even ask for you to pick me, I'm afraid I would be too star struck to actually DO anything! Okay, so I do REALLY want to go!

Madame Samm said...

Waaaaaah How I wish you were a skip and jump away. I keep saying I am going to have to buy a place there sew I can be more available... then you could have picked me wink..

Amy said...

I want to come! I'm not too far, I'm in Bountiful. I'm crossing my fingers :) What a fun day it would be! Thanks for the chance!

Momoo said...

Your retreat sounds like a lot of fun, too bad it's not closer to MI.
