SUMMER RETREAT ...

with Helen Kent and Cecilia Slinn

Friday 14th - Sunday 16th June 2024

Hillscourt Hotel, Rose Hill, Lickey, Birmingham B45 8RS

As well as plenty of time for your own projects we are offering two projects to make. A Project Bag, brought to us by Cecilia, and a Block Nanny, from Helen. Both ideal to partner your trips to workshops, classes and retreats. The useful bag will take all those bits and pieces you can’t do without and the Block Nanny keeps your completed blocks safe before piecing into your full quilt. You will probably have time for only one of the projects but will have the pattern for the second to work on at home.
