You will come in the day before the 3rd
The next day we will all meet at 10;00 am to go to Farm Chicks Antiques and Collectible Sale. I pay the fee here, If you purchase things that need to be sent I can get boxes and bubble wrap and we can get them sent. We will also attend a craft sale and see part of the sites. Maybe even a castle that a man built and lives in. It is quite unique and really fun.
The day we go to Farm Chicks you may take anything out of your car you are worried about and store in my studio until the next morning.
You will come in the day before the 3rd and we will be going to dinner that evening at Perry Street Pizza. I pay for this dinner.
Then the next day the classroom will be opened up at 8:45 to put things at your desk and get ready for class to begin at 9:30.
A small breakfast will be provided and also snacks all day and delicious lunches and dinners. You will never go hungry at my retreats!!
On day two of the workshop we will do our field trip to the Quilting Bee and another nice quilt shop. We will visit two nice gift shops if we have time and also eat lunch at the Coeur d'Alene hotel on the lake in Idaho. I pay for lunch there as well. That is always a highlight. The lake is beautiful and Coeur d'Alene is fun. We will come back to the classroom and for those that have energy we will keep it open until 8:30.
Story Quilts, and Self Portraits Mary Lou style will be offered as well as some super ideas for great borders and easy piecing!
My new book has dogs and cats and fish and birds and flowers and fun things where the sky is the limit!
Please tell us of any food allergies you have. We will also be doing fairy gifts for fun. If you do not know what this is, it is in the handouts I will send you.
Cost is $750. and I ask for $150. deposit now. This deposit is non-refundable.
This will be my 10th year of having a summer retreat. I have had retreats during all times of the year but the June retreat is the longest running. Spokane is a beautiful city in the summer or anytime. And I have to say the girls who come often repeat and they make friends for a lifetime. It is a lovely experience for us all.
If you are wondering what types of quilts I make go to BING and then type in Mary Lou Weidman Quilts. Its fun!
Hotels can be found on the internet and our address is 2406 S. Dishman-Mica Road -Suite 5, Spokane Valley, 99206
