What if you could be on a deserted island for a week of creative bliss?
What if I was there to help you or just to run ideas past about your next project?
What if you were surrounded by other creative souls all in the "zone" for a week? A place where nobody could interrupt you or bug you, you don’t have to cook or go to the grocery store and you could be inspired by your fellow quilt artists.
I have that place. It’s on a beautiful beach in Central California. White sandy beaches with misty fog rolling out in the morning. If you haven’t already guessed, I'm talking about Empty Spools Seminars in Pacific Grove. I love that place. I want to invite you to one of the best creative experiences you can have. If you have never been, start saving your pennies because this is a must for art quilters. It’s a safe environment to push out your creativity, try something new, or just stay focused. Magic happens there - it’s always so amazing.
Top requirements to be successful at a retreat like this:
- Open to change
- Patience with yourself
... and maybe a good teacher?
Oh, and don't forget, lots of fabric.
I am asked all the time how do I do my own, personal flower quilt? Well, if that interests you, this is the venue. Once you do a detailed flower you will be able to use the same principles to do any subject matter after that. All skill levels are welcome.
We talk a lot about color and values. How to see color and how to use it to make the biggest impact. How to use your creative gifts, even if you don't think you're creative. Believe me, by the end of a week at an Empty Spools event you will be and feel creative. So check your calendar to join me February 23-28, 2014 or go to Empty Spools Seminars for more information.
This is the time for YOU. Put the dog in the kennel, take the kids to the grandparents and put your husband on the sofa with a 6-pack and a sandwich or 2 and come have fun with me.
See you there.
