Wildflower retreat

Time to Register!!!!


This retreat is the perfect time to bring that UFO and get it finished!  But there will be plenty of wool to plan that next project so consider bringing a pattern that you would like to color plan.  P.D. Hankamer or Katie Hartner would be happy to help make that next rug the one to enter in Celebrations.

 We are sending only this mass email mailing--no snail mail.  So if you see we have someone’s email wrong or we left someone off or you know of someone that would be interested, please give them a copy.  Beginners and novices are most welcome.  If you know of anyone interested let them know that kits and supplies will be available along with special instructions.

Space is limited so if you want to attend please respond quickly.  There are two attachments: the registration form and lodging possibilities.  If you have trouble opening either, let us know.  We will send it as an email message instead of an attachment.

P.D. Hankamer, Sondra Ives, Sylvia Hale

BEGINNER/NOVICE CLASS:  We recommend beginners attend two days for the best experience, but one day will give plenty of confidence to hook.  Supplies may be purchased at class time.  There will be one kit choice with precut wool strips and the pattern on linen.  You will need to bring scissors and a quilting hoop.  Hooks will be available for purchase.  Each beginning student will receive handouts, written instructions and a list of suppliers.  Materials will be available for viewing.  Sylvia is happy to answer questions for those interested. EXHIBIT:  Friday morning at 10:00, we will have our annual "Drop Down Exhibit."  Due to space limitations, we ask that you bring that one really special rug.  It may have been shown before.  We hope to have some area visitors. STORE:   Once again we will have two great stores for you to linger in.  Katie Hartner of A Nimble Thimble, Tyler, TX, will come loaded with wool, patterns, books, etc.  P.D. Hankamer will have plenty of her great dyed wools. Come ready to be tempted.  Payments may be made by credit card, check and cash. If you want something specific, let us know. You may email your desire to attend directly to twoives@swbell.net (Sondra Ives) but you are not counted in the retreat until your check is received by Sondra (payable to Hearts P.D.)   Cancellation policy: 90% refund will be returned only if we can replace you.
