Spend an entire week and be dynamically creative and wildly productive. Marilyn Doheny has been a long time professional quilter, author, lecturer, and judge for over 40 years. She is internationally famous and her reputation for a one-day class is that they are “Over the Top!” Just imagine what a full week with her will be like!
You will be playing with fabric in new ways, learning diverse, innovative techniques while sharing laughter, eating healthy gourmet foods, relaxing on the front porch in the evening or in front of the stove in the cozy lounge, and meeting new quilting friends. All in her spacious new home in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Tryon, North Carolina.
For the first time ever, Marilyn is OFFERING EVERY ONE OF HER WONDERFUL 9 Degree Circle Wedge Ruler classes, at the same time!!! EVERY student will make every possible wedge design, creating 15-22 different fans. Then each student will use their “fans” as desired, with her assistance, guidance, and direction…….Everyone will customize their retreat to meet their individual preferences!
The supply list is the same for creating the assorted fans…the supply lists get more details when you decide how you prefer to use the fans; be it as a collage or flowers or butterflies or critters! It is not necessary to chose between Spectacular Fan Sampler, Instant Garden – Just Add Fabric or CRITTERS! You can use your fans do anything preferred or even all three topics
All seminars feature the use of her 9 Degree Circle Wedge Rulers. Rulers (all five sizes) are available to borrow during class. Each day will be filled with learning, joy, fun, and decadent meals – Marilyn is a gourmet chef. Her class motto is, “If you are not having fun, then you are not doing it right.” Productivity, creative challenges, and riotous learning will be the signatures of every day together. Evenings are not about quilting, yet they are action packed with interactive events that will “touch, move, and inspire.” The evening programs will enrich and reward your personal life for years to come. Space is limited; only 8 private bedrooms with private baths are available for each retreat week, so respond quickly!
