Are you ready for Madeline Island!?
We are! In preparation for your trip, we’re resending the Retreat Supply List and Retreat Schedule for reference below. We can’t wait to see you!
Retreat Supply List
You’ll need to bring the following items with you to class:
Each Room will have (4) Pressing and at least (2) Cutting Stations. Madeline Island has done a great job assuring that power requirements are available for the machines and ironing stations, along with everything that is needed to keep us all *on the grid*. You will be sharing the pressing and cutting stations with 32 students. Much of the cutting you will be doing can be done at your own station and there is enough space on each 4 foot table for your machine and a cutting space. There is also some available wattage for you to have lights and irons at your space. But, PLEASE adhere to the following guidelines below.
OPTIONAL: You are also able to bring a small iron (less than 40 Watts, please. Anything greater will not be allowed), to press seams while at your seat.
Some options might be:
In addition, some students like extra light. LED Lighting Kits for Sewing Machines are allowable, but please do not bring magnifying glass combos. Some of those shown below might give you an idea of options that seem to work well in Retreats at Quiltworx. Since we will be providing machines however, please do not bring one that needs to permanently attach to your machine unless you plan on taking it home with you!
We’ve changed a few details in the schedule and would like you to review this information for arrival time, special programs and events, and check-out information!
Sunday, September 25th:
Note: The sewing studio has (2) rooms, each with (30) students. Every station has its own 4 foot table, and, each room is outfitted with (4) ironing and pressing stations. You will not be able to have an iron at your own personal station, but with your own personal table, you will have some space to complete much of your trimming needed during the paper piecing process in your quilt.
Don’t forget, you are invited to arrive to a station that has already been set up with a sewing machine (so there’s no need to haul your own). These complimentary machines are provided from Bernina and Quilters Quest, your exclusive Certified Shop on the island!
Staff from Quilters Quest will be on hand throughout the week to help you learn about your machines and will provide some excellent workshop specials for those of you that may be in the market for machines! The prices are so good, Judy is buying several of the machines for her training center and retreat house in Montana!
