2021 Fall Virtual Mystery Retreat

Posted by Toni fiberologylab@gmail.com on

We had so much fun during our Summer Virtual Mystery Retreat! We got great feedback from our participants so we decided to go ahead and book in dates for our Fall retreat. Read on to get the details:  

WHO?

This project is great for advanced beginners and up (aka you know how to use your sewing machine, know what a quarter inch is and know how to press). The quilt has been designed to be relatively simple without too much piecing, cutting, or intricate processes since the goal is to get it done over the weekend. If you're fast, you may have time to put on borders, but regardless you should get your top done. 

WHAT?

What exactly do you get out of this experience? Well, you're getting four days of me, uninterrupted. I am going to be completely available for you to walk through this process, give you some tips on ironing, and cutting, and sewing.

Every night we will have a Zoom happy hour, which will allow us to chat about quilting and also connect with one another. We'll get to know each other and forge some new friendships in the process. And, of course, there's prizes! We're all about prizes.

Your kit will come to you in a reusable plastic project bin to keep everything organized. Additionally, you'll have access to the retreat materials for a full 90 days. We know life happens and we don't want you to miss out on the project if something unavoidable comes up that prevents you from being there that weekend. All construction videos come with a printable pdf as well!

At the request of our summer retreaters, we're also introducing an open sewing Zoom session to the fall retreat. We'll spend Sunday afternoon with the Zoom camera on for two or three hours so we can chat while we sew. 

We will being doing a fun mystery make and take as well, which guarantees that you'll finish something over the weekend. It's super easy and will be based off your kit scraps (or you can pull from your home stash). 

You'll receive 20% off any backing fabric we have in stock to finish the back of your quilt. Oh, and there will be snacks! Your kit will come packed with some tasty nibbles. We'll keep you plugged into the action and motivated throughout the weekend with some friendly team competitions and daily challenges.

WHEN?

This four-day event runs October 8th through the 11th. We are offering both twin and queen size options and if you order online, you can choose Sezzle as your payment option to break the cost into 4 easy installments.

WHERE?

The entire event will take place online in a Private Facebook group. Clues will be given 2-3 times per day in video format and we'll interact regularly over Zoom. 

WHY?

Because we are friends, fiber, and FUN. And we love spending time with you! Spots are limited, so make sure you grab yours before the list fills up! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me (info@fiberologylab.com) or call me (865-294-5612).
