If you are looking for stitching/quilt/surface design related activities for next year, have you considered the Be Creative by the Sea Retreat? Wendy Martin has put together a great program for 2010 with 2 retreats on offer in May & July with another planned for 2011.
The reason I'm telling you this is that workshop bookings open on-line on January 1, 2010. And yes, I'm happy to say I'm one of the tutors in May. Happy to be invited back to teach & enjoy the great coastal scenery & inspiration at the Opal Cove Resort, Coffs Harbour in New South Wales.
