Join us for the first of three “Celebrity” retreats this year in celebration of our 20th Anniversary! We have asked renowned quilters and fiber artists to be our guests at these retreats to simply hang out with you, chat, share their stories, show you some of their art, and perhaps show you a technique or two. Our first retreat will feature Colleen Wise, an engineer, quilter, and author, she teaches and exhibits her award-winning work around the world. An expert on creating the illusion of three-dimensions on a two-dimensional surface, she lives in Puyallup. Quilters and fiber artists alike will find time spent with Colleen both inspirational and motivating! Open to both women and men!
These relaxed experiences are an opportunity for time away to focus on your quilting or fiber arts, along with other like-minded artists. We have selected a wonderful venue, The Firs, in Bellingham, WA – a 7-acre campus among mature fir and cedar trees, just 2 blocks from Lake Whatcom and their own private beach. The central location is convenient whether coming from Vancouver, B.C. or from the Seattle area.
During the day you’ll enjoy working in a well lit room at your own table. We will have a small satellite Gift Shop there for those things you may have forgotten or for additional inspiration. On Tuesday afternoon, there will be a masseuse coming in case you need help with those shoulder kinks or stiff neck.
Great dining is essential to a successful retreat, and The Firs’ executive chef turns meal time into a dining experience where family-style, pleasing menus are served in the casual, friendly atmosphere. The sleeping accommodations are shared cabins with Queen or Double beds and a full bathroom. All lodgings are centrally located, with a short walk through the trees taking you to the Conference Center. You can find more information at www.thefirs.org
Space is limited! To ensure we are able to cover all costs, a limited number of day passes are available.
