Have you thought about a Quilt Vacation? Maybe more along the lines of a Quilt Retreat in a beautiful setting surrounded by luxury accommodations and more importantly – sewing machines and fabric! Better yet, classes with instructors!!!
Have I got the perfect gift for you! And the perfect gift to suggest to your best quilting buddy too!
Studio 180 Acadamy is that and more! Think about 3 full days of classroom instruction with Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors! Work on a specific project (or two), take a class on techniques with the tools, or just spend a day in the open studio with a certified instructor on hand to answer your every question as you use Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools.
Last year’s academy was a huge success and plans are already underway for the 2018 classes. Certified Instructors are busy as little elves writing their proposals in hopes that Saint Nick will pick their quilt/project for the upcoming 2018 classes.
I already hinted that my fellow 2017 Certification classmate Brian ( aka “The Redneck Quilter“) and I are working on our proposal – we should know something the first of the year…regardless of who is teaching (after all, only certified instructors will be there), it’s going to be a big event not to be missed!
Studio 180 Academy will be held on September 19-22, 2018 at the Illinois Beach Resort & Conference Center. It’s located on the southern shore of Lake Michigan.
Think about it! Sewing in these surroundings! All meals are provided too! In addition, there will be a special dinner Friday night with Deb Tucker herself!!!
As much as I love the beach, cruising, and making new quilting friends I think this lake setting would be so inspiring as a quilt retreat! I know I want to go!!
Watch the website as class offerings will be published in February with registration beginning in March. Seats are limited!
How about another gift giving idea for the quilter in your life (or for you to hint to your friends and family). The fine folks at Studio 180 Design have put together a product checklist where you can mark “want it or have it” and then hand that list right over to Santa himself! You can download the PDF here. So many new patterns, technique sheets, and tools – you just have to keep up and this is a perfect list to help you do that!
This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, helping you to wrap up something special for the favorite quilter in your life, maybe even something for you!
