Back in August, I got an email from Sydney Haglund from Alpine Retreats asking me if I would be interested in being a teacher at one of the retreats she is hosting in her BEAUTIFUL home here in Alpine, Utah. I was very surprised (and flattered!?!) considering the list of other amazing teachers she has lined up. Even though I felt completely out of place next to these ladies, I couldn't pass up the great opportunity ~ so I said, "Yes!"
About a month ago, Sydney held a "teachers luncheon" at her home and can I tell you that I was loving it?!? It is beautiful inside and out. The food that she served from Dear Lizzie's was delish. The view was fantastic. Her home was clean, beautifully decorated, cozy and all set up for a perfect weekend retreat with quilty friends!
Sydney loves to host and entertain. She knows how to do everything right - down to the last detail! She even had fat quarter favors for each of us at our place settings!

After getting to know each other a bit and touring Sydney's beautiful home, we talked about how it might be fun to have a big event to kickoff the start of
Alpine Retreats. So, Sydney organized a really fun shop-hop, if you will,
called, The Quilter's Harvest.
The 3 best local stores are participating:
Just Sew (5 min. drive from Alpine Retreats)
The Quilting Cottage (10 min. drive)
Broadbents (20 min. drive)
Each quilt store and Alpine Retreats will offer a make-and-take project. The stores will be offering discounts, you'll meet many of the Alpine Retreat teachers and you may even get some SWAG (o.k., I just learned that word form Amanda. Let me put it to you this way, you might get some free stuff!) Plus, stop at Dear Lizzie's for a complimentary drink and treat while on your tour! It will be a great day ~ Friday, November 12th.
Space is limited. Tickets are $20 each and includes the supplies for all of the projects and treats from Dear Lizzie's! Click HERE to see photos of many of the projects you'll get to take home.
I'll be there, doing a make-and-take on my new wrist pincushion:
