About Zephyr

About Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center

Zephyr-1Nestled in the Sierra Nevada, on a half-mile of Lake Tahoe shoreline, Zephyr Point is one of the most beautiful retreat centers in the West—and a real favorite with quilters. Buildings from different eras dot the hillside campus, which goes down to the water’s edge. There is a small beach and a dock, from which you can see far and wide, thanks to the “point” in Zephyr Point. The accommodations are rustic but very comfy, and the food is described as “very good!” by fellow quilters.

For more info on Zephyr Point—the history is very interesting—check out their site, zephyrpoint.org

Heidi’s Studio Sale!

 

Sometime last year, Christine mentioned in a blog post that we all have treasures in our studios that we want to sell. We thought it would be fun to do it through our Artistic Alchemy Blog.

All prices include first-class (if the package is under 13 ounces) or Priority postage (it depends on the item(s) and their weight). If you decide to buy several items, I’ll consolidate the order and hopefully be able to refund some of the total postage cost.

How do you purchase something? Email me personally, at hmemmett@gmail.com not through our AA blog. I’ll send you a Request for Money through Pay Pal. You don’t need a Pay Pal account to do this transaction. Once you pay, I will send it. Or, if you would rather, send me a check. The first person to email me that they want an item, gets it. That simple.

Everyone’s computer sees color differently. So keep that in mind. If you purchase something from me and don’t like it, I will take it back within 10 days of shipping it originally. I will refund your money after I receive the item back. I will not be able to refund any shipping charges  Here we go:

I collected some Kimono’s. They are timeless and look great for any occasion. I found that true Kimono’s are just not my thing. I am ashamed to say that I thought of cutting them up for the fabric. WHAT WAS I THINKING? So having saved them from my scissors, I now offer them to all of you. As items sell, they will be removed from the post.
