Fall 2017 Mary Lou's Autumn Story Quilt Retreat for the Happy Hearted

Come and Join Mary Lou October 23rd- 26th. Come into Spokane the day before to settle in, bring sewing things you do not want to leave in the car over night. Then we will all go to dinner somewhere fun. Possibly Perry Street Pizza or one of the Mexican Restaurants or? We'll see. It will be delicious though I can tell you that! I pay for this dinner. Then the next morning at 8:45 we will meet to unload, thread our machines and get ready for the workshop at 9:30.

A small breakfast will be provided as well as snacks and lunch and dinner by Miss Tina from California. She will have Autumn favorites for us and you will not go hungry!

On the second day of class we will go to two or three quilt shops and two nice gift shops if we have time. We will be having lunch at the Coeur d'Alene hotel on the lake in Idaho. It is lovely and good food too. I pay for lunch there. That day will be lots of fun and we will come back and sew. You can sew until 8:30 that night in the classroom which is next to my studio. Its handy to find things we need to use and also I have limited fabrics (Alexander Henry and Timeless Treasures)  for sale as well as some gift things and some quilts.

You may work on a story quilt , a self portrait or other ideas you might have! I have some really fun things to show you. One is a wonderful garden girl that is begging for pumpkins and gourds and grapes and black cats etc. I have special handouts for Fall and if you do not want to choose Fall for a theme no worries! I will help you with anything you wish. I have a new projector to help put images on paper for those that would like to use it.

Please tell us of any allergies you might have. Of coarse we will do fairy gifts as that is one thing people just love!

$750. and I ask for a deposit now of $150. non-refundable)

I am really excited about this and having people come here in the Fall. It is such an inventive and fun time of the year!

Space is limited so do not wait!

If you are wondering what types of quilts I make go to BING and then type in Mary Lou Weidman Quilts. Its fun!

Join Mary Lou June 3rd through 7th.

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.

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!

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!
