We are thrilled to announce our second official Cherrywood Retreat!
MAY 21-24, 2018
9:00 a.m. Monday to 1:00 p.m. Thursday
Four days and three nights at
North Star Retreat Center in Ashby, Minnesota. This is a beautiful 11,000 square foot retreat center, just a few miles from Alexandria, Minnesota. The workspace is flooding with natural light, and there is plenty of room to spread out. The large bedrooms and shared bathrooms include all wonderful quilts on the beds, towels and bathroom products.
Gather with like-minded quilters to work on all those Cherrywood projects swimming in your head! And if you are one of those that says "I just can't cut into my Cherrywood" we will have a special exercise for you!
We will get to know eachother at the Monday night "Sip & Slide" where Karla will give a slide presentation about The Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge, and all the work leading up to the display. The entire Traveling Exhibit (BOTH the French and Dutch Galleries!) will display--one of the few times to see them all together! The quilts will be on public display from May 11-19 from 9-6:00 (except Sunday) and during our retreat.
We will be working on the "Googly" quilt (kit available for $154.50 online, or at the retreat), but also bring your unfinished Cherrywood projects so Karla can encourage and guide you. A supply list will be e-mailed to you after sign-up.
There will be a "pop-up" shop where you can purchase Cherrywood, including the new Prince Challenge bundle. This would be a great opportunity to start your submission for the Challenge!
Only 16 spots available. Order below to get your spot. Have a roommate request? Please write in the "notes" area at check-out.
$225 includes everything but your kit and food. There is a fully equipped commercial kitchen for use. Crockpot meals work well and there is a nice restaurant within walking distance.
