A Holiday Wish

As this year wraps up, we look forward to 2011. Polly and I will be as busy in the new year as we ever have. There will be workshops in Oregon and Nebraska and we'll write about those more later, but the first one coming up will be on Mackinac Island in May. It is Mother's Day weekend to be specific, and we are honored to be the opening the summer season there.
The spot will be the Grand Hotel. It truly lives up to it's name. A more luxurious place would be hard to find. You can find out all about the workshops here. {pdf}
This is what we will be making...... Chippewa Nine Patch.....

Or maybe a wool stitched pillow.....

Polly will offer this hooked rug...
Or one of these adorable hooked purses.Registrations starts January 2nd. Remember that the room fees include your meals at the Grand Hotel. This is not just an inconsequential add-on or afterthought. The meals here are truly Grand also. So Grand, that there is a dress code. This will be a memorable weekend so start making your plans now.
We hope to see you there.

We also hope you get everything you wish for this holiday season...... maybe even a red Etch-a-Sketch to match your red shoes!
Polly and Laurie

Lovely. All of them. I especially *need* to make the Chippewa Nine Patch in the Charlevoix fabrics. Summer deliciousness. Thanks for the inspiration. ~~Lisa

Those hooked purses are wonderful!
My husband and son sail in the race every summer.
The grand is wonderful. My other favorite is having dinner outside at the Iroquois - lovely food and view.
Merry Christmas
