Have you heard about

'Quilt @ Winter School'?  The wonderful Glenys who organises Fibre Arts in Ballarat each year and other week long fibre arts retreats/schools has put together a fabulous 'Quilt @ the Winter School' for next year - 2013.  There is a great selection of tutors AND the best thing is you work with the one tutor for the week, so you can complete your project, not take it home half-done and then put it away for another day.  How many times have you done that and then forgotten about it?

Plus, there is NO cooking or housework for a whole week (5 days).  To find out more click here or above - the link will take you to her website and all the information is there.  While there have a peek at some of the other schools she has organised - there is even one in Darwin!

In case any of you are interested(?) I have booked into the class with Carolyn Sharkey.  So I'm on the hunt for some fabulous photos and images that I can work with.  I will post some pics when I have the photos.

Please go and have a look at Glenys' site and really really think about joining the rest of us.

I would love to attend the week, looked at it, but can't make the decision just yet until the end of the year.

Oh Joy - I have heard about the Winter Quilt School and I was all set to enrol in Sue Daley's EPP class. And then they announced the SCQ retreat for the week after! Being in Canberra I can't justify two different trips so I've decided to go to the SCQ retreat instead and have booked a room at a nearby hotel (not the All Seasons - wasn't quick enough!!)

Am now regretting that decision though - a friend goes to the textile schools that are held during the year and she said it was just wonderful, and the people are super friendly. Am wondering now whether the budget will stretch as far as either two trips to Victoria, or an extended stay.

Decision decisions! (off to check the budget)

Are you going to the retreat as well?
