    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    I spent a week at this quilt camp in 2010: http://www.quilting-adventures.com/

    I took a class with Marsha McCloskey. Everything about it was wonderful. Nice rooms, three meals a day, small class size, lots of individual instruction, and intense learning with the opportunity to quilt from dawn to the wee hours if you wanted.

    What I learned was life changing. I hadn't finished a quilt before I took this camp. There were also quilt teachers taking the camp in the same classroom. We were all happy with the content of the camp. Many people make it their annual vacation. I'd love to go back again sometime.

    There is no experience that can compare with Empty Spools. You spend time with incredible teachers ar a place that is close to heaven as I've seen. You will not regret it!

    If I had an offer like yours, I would want to take a class (or two) at the John C. Campbell Folk School in the North Carolina mountains. I have not been yet but it is a goal for me. And maybe your husband could go if he found a class he would like to take also? You can view a catalog on their website: https://www.folkschool.org// The surroundings are beautiful. Classes are offered throughout the year so you could go in whatever season you wish. The types of classes offered are so diverse that I cannot help but think that everyone could find one they would like to take. OK, just my opinion .... but now I am sad because I cannot go yet. Have fun wherever you chose to go.
