Hand Stitching at Woodland Ridge Retreat

In mid July, for the first time in Wisconsin, I'll be offering a multi-day workshop that is open to the public. Woodland Ridge Retreat ( is an amazing retreat center that is set up specifically (and ideally) for quilters and fiber artists. Lodging, meals, and workshops are all right on site in a beautiful wooded setting between Madison and the Twin Cities. From July 16-18 I'll be teaching a three-day workshop "Dots & Dashes: The Language of the Hand-Made Stitch." It is a sampler-based workshop in which we explore bead embroidery, thread embroidery, and a variety of design principles while each student develops her/his own visual "hand-writing"/style. I've taught this as a two-day class in the Chicago area and Florida and as a five-day class at QSDS. I'm really excited about the opportunity to offer it for three days and in such an amazing setting. The class will be fairly small, so I encourage you to sign up soon if you'd like to participate. Chris Daly, the owner of Woodland Ridge Retreat, can be contacted at to register or answer logistical questions. Feel free to contact me with workshop-related questions.  

Registration for this class ends this week.
