Sisters, sisters. There were never such devoted sisters! These two girls know how to have a good time. Come meet Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson, the smiling faces behind Me and My Sister Designs, and get ready for a retreat that feels more like a PJ party with your best friends. They’ve got plenty of fun projects planned for you, including a Flower Power quilt and a Beach Ball Double Wide Dresden quilt. Lots of other bonus projects too. The cost of a kit for each project, is included in the price of this retreat! What a deal! You’ll also have the chance to win prizes daily. And don’t worry about doing your hair, Friday’s a special Pajama Day, so keep your curlers in. We don’t mind.
Barb and Mary are bringing their expertise and enthusiasm to share with us. These one-time shop owners have expanded their love of quilting into a business that now includes designing fabrics for Moda, developing the SideWinder portable bobbin winder, and producing and designing books and patterns for their company. They have taught internationally and love to teach whenever they get the opportunity to spread their love of quilting. Their retreats and classes are full of fun and adventures. We hope to see you there!
