Artistic Alchemy: A Tahoe Retreat for Creative Sewists and Quilters, September 4 – 8, 2017
al·che·my noun \ˈal-kə-mē\ the power or process of transforming individual elements into something special
And that’s exactly what happens when we pursue our passions for fiber and fabric. Materials that inspire become sensational when gathered, edited, and creatively combined. We come together for this retreat, in a magical spot on Lake Tahoe, to offer you the chance to discover your own alchemy as you explore the concepts and techniques of quilting and clothing arts.
We are Christine Barnes, Mary Boalt, Sandra Bruce, and Heidi Emmett, and we each offer a different workshop experience. To read about each of us and our workshops, click on the tabs above. Be sure to check out Zephyr Point Conference Center on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. (Zephyr Point is just over the state line, into Nevada.) It’s beautiful, and a real favorite with quilters. By the way, a zephyr is a gentle breeze.
We’ll take turns posting weekly, with info on the retreat workshops, as well as examples of our latest work. Whether you’re contemplating coming to the retreat or just want to see what we’re up to, we’d love to have you!
