Remember the long, lazy days of summer camp as a kid? How about all those folksy crafts you made during activities time? Well, camp isn’t just for kids, you know? For all you quilters out there, Havel’s Sewing has compiled a list of quilt camps that offer a variety of classes that will peak your interest and energize your skill set. Some offer on-site lodging and a few offer lunch. All offer the promise of quilts and camaradarie. Take a look.
For the Midwestern explorer, Country Threads Quilt Camp takes place in Garner, Iowa. They offer lunch and dinner around class time, but accommodations must be made in town.
Or make the desert your designation with a Quilting in the Desert camp in Phoenix, Arizona. This quilt camp is held at a hotel, so accommodations are no problem. They offer five days of lots of interesting classes with internationally known instructors.
Move back east to Missouri to attend the Arrow Rock Quilt Camp in Arrow Rock, Missouri. Set in a serene village recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, all classes are held in Brown Chapel and are just a walk away from your accommodations at a local bed and breakfast.
Not just a quilt camp but offering 33 different quilt classes, the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina has a class to inspire almost every type of artist. Accommondations are provided.
So take some vacation time in 2010 and spend some time with a few other folks who have a passion for quilting! You may just meet someone from Havel’s Sewing while you piece together your quilt camp masterpiece!
