2011 Alex Anderson Quilt Retreat

Quilt’n at the Hilton with Alex Anderson 2011

Every fall I host a four-day retreat in my hometown Livermore, CA. It was started and created because of YOU! Yes, that’s right. My friends on the Internet convinced me that we needed an annual gathering place to quilt and play together. As a result, this retreat has turned into an annual event that I look forward to all year long. Each retreat has a different theme, and we also encourage guests to bring their own projects to work on. So whether you are working on the retreat project or “doing your own thing,” This year Laura Nownes and myself will provide instruction on Y-seams. Again, the return rate of guests has been fabulous and deep friendships have been made. Please note that we now have expanded to two sessions.

Session 1, September 29 through October 2, 2011
No-Frills, Early-Start, Sept. 28
