Vergennes, Vermont

Lemoyne Star Festival Retreat

October 26-29, 2017

 

Join us in lovely Vergennes, Vermont for a weekend of sewing, chocolate, pampering, and fun!

During the Lemoyne Star Festival retreat, Instructor Kathie Beltz will guide you through the process of making the basic Lemoyne Star block, then move on to create six more-complex versions of the Lemoyne Star. Using the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star tool, you can quickly, easily, and accurately piece Lemoyne Star blocks without complicated templates or “Y” seams.  Keep your 6-inch blocks as a reference tool, or use your blocks to make a sampler quilt.

Skill Level:  Intermediate/Advanced

The Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Tool is required for this class. This tool is available from the instructor during class, or is available at your local quilt shop.

This quilt retreat at the fabulous Strong House Inn includes use of the specifically-designed quilting room with cutting stations, ironing stations, excellent natural light, and extra lighting for those marathon night sewing sessions.  The rates of $540 ppdo/$653 so include 3 nights lodging, 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 1 casual dinner, and an afternoon tea to break up your long sewing day.

Reservations are required in advance, with a $150 deposit to guarantee your space.
