January 22-24th, 2016
'CABIN FEVER' 
PLAY DATE WEEKEND RETURNS

As January can be the month when we all are feeling a bit of a let down and a stirring feeling of Cabin Fever... we have reserved the Odessa Fairgrounds Hall once again for a weekend of fibre play Open to everyone!  
The Fee for the entire weekend (3 full days) is $60 
(and yes, the fee applies whether  you come for 1, 2 or all three days - just to help pay the hall rental)

Happy New Year - come help me celebrate 2016!

You can come and work on whatever your heart and sewing calendar allows... 
BRING FRIENDS, CAR POOL AND BRING BROWN BAG LUNCH EACH DAY...

Possible projects:

- Sewing/Embroidery/ Projects and UFO's

- Weaving or spinning projects - love to have the spinners out and perhaps the Tapestry Weavers!!

- Plan a great outfit for spring or stitch up some home decor to be ready for spring

- Work on your entries for up coming Exhibitions (Quilt Canada, THREADWORKS, a SAQA Show... KFA?

-  Play with some Modern Quilt Projects (Modern Quilt group members so very welcome) ... or work on catching up on your Quilt Guild Block of the Month project

AND...as a treat from me, we will start the weekend by including a full day of 

SNOW/ICE Dyeing on FRIDAY January 22nd... 

All dye supplies (except your fabric) will be furnished - the dyes, the auxiliaries (soda ash for your fabric) and the table cover will all be in place and ready for you! 

The process is fun and easy and can work around all of the other projects you will be working on over the weekend... This project will be shared on FRIDAY morning (you will LOVE IT) and you can use my dyes all the rest of the weekend. (and yes, I will share the process on Saturday and Sunday too! Just in case you can't come Friday!)

YOU will need a bucket or dishpan for each batch with a screen or other "elevating" device in the bottom to keep the fabric from sitting in the dye. 

You will also need to bring your 1/2 to 1 metre pieces of fabric, washed and ready to dye. We will soak in Soda Ash at the workshop 

In case there is no snow, we will be using ICE CUBES which create amazing patterns...

NOTES: 

** The workshop days will run 9-5 pm every day -  Friday the 22nd, Saturday the 23rd and Sunday the 24th  9-5 each day so just enjoy some fun with like minded stitchers!

**as this is not a "class" weekend except for Friday come when you can and stay as long as you want.

 Treats will be in the kitchen all weekend, a few power bars and lots of tables for your biggest projects!
