Sew With Jenny 2016 Retreat Recap

Sew With Jenny 2016 Retreat Recap

This past May we hosted our first ever “Sew With Jenny” retreat here at Missouri Star Quilt Company and boy was it a hit! Jenny brought her sewing machine to the retreat center and had a blast sewing along and chatting with everyone there!

Jenny did her famous Trunk Show for the group (if you’ve never seen it, check our schedule for an upcoming one HERE). It was 2 hours of personal stories about Jenny and MSQC, laughter, tears and tips for quilting with precuts! Jenny also taught a few classes, including the Flying Geese Log Cabin and Pinwheel Party Quilts! Isn’t the Flying Geese Log Cabin Table Runner above gorgeous??

Jan made her Flying Geese Log Cabin in a darker colorway of batiks and it turned out great! It’s so fun to see how different a quilt can look by using different colors, each as beautiful as the next in its own way.

Bonnie’s husband surprised her with this retreat and even sent her roses from the local flower shop. How sweet is that?? He deserves an award!

Denise got a head start on Christmas projects while at the retreat and made a darling Love Notes Star Quilt. Imagine wrapping up in it next to the fireplace with some hot coco. So peaceful!

The very first retreat of the MSQC retreat center will be packed full of great last minute gifts!! Come for the day or stay the week and leave with a sleigh full of gifts! HO HO HO! Jean at retreats@missouriquiltco.com is ready for your call and has the sugar plum fairies at the ready to dance in your head.

Jenny will be teaching how to zip together soft and cuddly minkee scarves — quick and easy last minute gifts for teachers, babysitters, or that crazy Aunt who gave you her cat wrapped up in a box last year! (Name that movie)

Or make an adorable table runner to spice up the Christmas dinner, so delicious you could eat it, but I advise not too!!

And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, try the fast, easy and gorgeous tree skirt. (After all a tree just doesn’t look good in leggings!)

And finally, how about some cute Christmas stockings for your mantle (for both the good and the naughty!)
