A First: Quilting Together Quilting Retreat

I received an invitation from my friend, Carolyn Beam, Creative Editor for Quiltmaker Magazine, to attend a new quilting retreat in Chicago, this year. It is called: Quilting Together in Chicago, and will be held September 29th - October 2, 2010. I will not be able to attend, but hope you can!

The Quilting Together website says that it "is the first event to bring together editors from you favorite quilting magazines with industry experts and innovators to provide avid quilters with a quilting retreat like no other."

In addition to Carolyn, Sherri Bain Driver, a former colleague, and Angie Hodapp, Editor-in-Chief of Quilters Newsletter, will also be holding a class. Sherri is Associate Editor of McCall's Quilting, McCall's Quick Quilts, and the McCall's Special Issues magazines.

Other instructors who will be teaching are Marianne Fons, co-founder of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine, Jo Morton, quilt artist, fabric designer, teacher, author, and lecturer, Dawn Cavanaugh, award winning custom freehand quilter, Jodie Davis, "quilting enabler" and host of Quilt Out Loud & Quilt It!, and Nancy Mahoney, author, teacher, and fabric designer.
