Road trip, anyone?? For most of us, the only thing better than quilting, is quilting with girlfriends…away from home…with a great workspace…and prepared meals, etc! With that image in mind, read on to learn more about Pam Buda’s increasingly popular girlfriend getaways:
“Designing original quilts for my company, Heartspun Quilts, and fabric collections for Marcus are dream jobs for sure, but they require me to spend most of my time at home. Now, I’m a home-body at heart and love working from home, but sometimes a girl just has to get out and be with girlfriends!!
I also love to teach, and traveling all over the US not only gets me out of the house, but allows me to spend the day with very special people….quilters!!
Most of the time, I visit quilt guilds and quilt shops, but once or twice a year, I partner with my girlfriend, Lynne Hagmeier, and we host our own retreats! We call them Great Girlfriend Getaways, and so far, we’ve cruised to Alaska, and explored St. Augustine, FL, all while getting to know each other, laughing, sharing tips and tricks, and making lots of new friends!”
Their next Getaway retreat takes participants to Mackinaw City, MI, September 8-12, 2014. They chose this destination because “it’s just a ferry ride away from historic and charming Mackinaw Island, where life is a bit slower and motorized vehicles are not allowed!”
See the brochure for full details, including the FOUR workshop projects being offered, hotel, food, pricing information, and other goodies. A ticket to ride the ferry to the Island is included!! Have fun!
