Walking Foot Week, with Sashiko
March 6-10, 2022
It is a pleasure to welcome Jacquie Gering!
Join us for an intensive, exclusive, four-and-a-half-day retreat of focused instruction from Jacquie Gering. This small group setting will allow you to learn and grow in your walking foot quilting with expert help and support.
Jacquie will begin by reviewing the basics and establishing a firm foundation for expanding and growing participants’ skills with the walking foot. With Jacquie’s guidance, participants will apply that knowledge to learn and practice walking foot friendly designs from simple to complex. Jacquie will support participants as they use that knowledge to create their own unique designs. Jacquie will teach strategies for managing large quilts and marking and quilting intricate designs. Together, Jacquie and the group will explore how to analyze quilts to create quilting designs that will support and enhance the piecing. Participants will leave with a toolbox filled with creative quilting options and the knowledge, skills and confidence to quilt their own quilts.
We hold our retreats at a church in Carpinteria, California with lovely light to sew by and an really beautiful outdoor patio. Our catered lunches are delicious and our check in Wine and Cheese is a very fun get acquainted event! We do offer each person attending table space of their own to work on and we have a great ironing set up! For those not familiar with Carpinteria it is home to one of the best quilt stores in the state, Roxanne’s a Wish and a Dream, with a huge selection of fabrics and also yarns, notions and gifts. It is located on the beach, just off the 101 Highway between Santa Barbara and Ventura.
We have arrangements with the Holiday Inn Express Carpinteria for lodging (not included in our pricing) and if you call the local number and tell them you are with us they will set you up with our discounted rate. Number is 1-805-566-9499!
