This March we were delighted to have not one, but TWO of our amazing RBD Designers head to Quilt Town USA to teach classes at quilt retreats hosted by Missouri Star Quilt Co!
What is a sewing or quilting retreat? Imagine a room full of people who love to sew as much as you do, snacks, and your favorite designers and teachers at your side to help you one on one through a pattern or project. Sounds like a dream, right? Retreats are a lot of fun and a great way to try your hand and skills that may intimidate you. If you love appliqué quilts or wish you knew how to make your own bags but are afraid of zippers (you’re not alone there) then a retreat is the place to learn! You will be able to get one on one help from the experts. Looking to make some quilter friends? Retreats are notorious for making new friends so don’t be afraid to sign up alone!
Minki Kim of Sewing Illustration & Sandy Gervais of Pieces From My Heart were the two designers at the March retreats. Both ladies said they had a wonderful time and loved meeting all those who could attend! Keep scrolling to see some of the fun from both retreats!
There are lots of places you can find retreats and quilting events. The unique thing about the retreats hosted by Missouri Star is that you will find yourself in Hamilton, Missouri AKA Quilt Town USA! It’s a town literally full of fabric and is certainly a bucket list trip for many quilters. Intrigued? You may have missed our recent designer retreats but you can see the full schedule of other great retreats from MSQC below!
We will always announce upcoming designer retreats here and on our social media so be sure to follow along with @rileyblakedesigns to see who will be teaching next!
