PENN-YORK CAMP QUILTING RETREAT
October 4-7 with Mim Cornish
Greetings friends old and new!
Can I see a show of hands from every one who is tired of this weird winter weather and is ready to get away and do some quilting? I have both hands up!!
So here’s what I have planned. We’ll be making a quilt called Confetti Cake…the “cake” part is because you need to use a layer cake, and the “confetti” part is because we cut it into many little pieces. (No worry, it’s an easy process!)
FABRIC SUPPPLY LIST:
Forty 10” squares or one layer cake. You can purchase a readymade layer cake, or cut forty 10” x 10” squares from your fabric stash
1 fat eighth (9 x 18) or a piece you can cut out twenty 2” squares
3 yds background
2 yds border
1 yd binding
5 yds backing (not necessary to bring to retreat)
As soon as I have a count for attendance, I will order the patterns and you can purchase it from me at the retreat.
• Your sewing machine, rotary equipment, and all your other wonderful quilting gadgets
• A flannel backed tablecloth to be used as a design wall
• An ironing station for yourself or to share with friends (I encourage you to share because too many irons plugged in at once causes circuit breaker problems)
• Extension cord and/or power strip
If you want to bring a snack to share, feel free to do so. We’ll all be happy to share it with you!
HERE’S SOMETHING NEW!!!
A couple retreats ago some ladies were bemoaning the fact that Sunday at 2:00 came way too soon, and could we please stay just ONE MORE DAY? So after talking to the folks at camp, I’m happy to say YES you can!!
So that we can release the cook after brunch on Sunday, we will all pitch in $$$ and order in something on Sunday evening, then everyone can bring something to share for brunch Monday A.M. Or maybe I will fix you all brunch like I did at the fall retreat…we’ll see.
Reminder: you need to bring your own bedding and towels. These are not furnished by the camp.
Registration is at 4:00 on Friday (please plan to arrive not more than 30 minutes early) I prefer not to start until all participants have arrived. However if you know you will be late, please let me know and we will help you catch up when you arrive.
If you’re coming with a friend, when you register you need to specify who it is you want to room with.
As always registration & payment is through Penn-York Camp. pennyork.com (you can find us under events) or call 814-848-9811 Any questions concerning the quilt, contact me at 814-274-7691, e-mail email@example.com or Facebook at Penn York Camp Quilters Retreat.
Looking forward to a great time together!
