A Dragonfly Retreat

I’ve been invited to teach at a wonderful venue in Bangor, Wisconsin this Summer! It’s called:

It’s located in an elegant colonial home built in 1935.


With a big and bright workroom:

Lovely accomodations:

including dragonfly quilts on the beds:

A beautiful dining room:

And to top it all off – a Sweet Sixteen mid-arm machine is available for you to use to free motion quilt your projects! (It’s the same machine I quilt on  🙂 )

I’m scheduled for July 19th to the 22nd, and my focus will be BORDERS!

I’ll kick off the weekend with my Border Boutique lecture in which I’ll share a plethora of ideas and techniques to add just the right “frames” to your quilts. From pieced to appliquéd; from threaded to embellished; there’ll be something for everyone!

Then I’ll present my Seminole Borders workshop. In it students will make samples of 5 different Seminole techniques that would add excitement to any quilt.

I did a blog post on this workshop a few months ago. To read all about it click here!

There’ll be plenty of time to design and create borders for your own projects over the course of the weekend – and I’ll be there to help and encourage you in any way I can.

I’m very excited about this opportunity and I’d love to have you enjoy it with me. For all the information go to: https://dragonflyretreatwi.com/


Hawaiian Cruise 2019 Update!

While we’re on the subject of traveling with quilters, we recently had a quilter sign on for a balcony cabin on our next Sew We Go adventure – and she’s looking for a roommate!

If you are interested, let us know. What we typically do in these situations is give the interested parties each other’s contact information. These two quilters then talk on the phone and, if they make a good connection, they meet for coffee or lunch and find out if they’re compatible. It’s worked well for many of our travelers in the past. Please email me at or contact Kristi through the link to our flyer: http://chrisquilts.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/2019-Hawaii-Cruise-Flyer.pdf

Wishing you a Happy Easter Sunday celebrating the resurrection of our Savior!
