Mosaic Pet Retreat

Mosaic Quilted Pet Portraits
A 3 Day Retreat at Whitney Lake
With Cheryl Lynch
"Bailey"                 54"x54"
Come and make a mosaic quilt of your beloved pet, like Bailey, with Cheryl.  You provide a photo, the fabric and your machine.
 Cheryl provides the instruction, the food, the lodging and an incredible creative experience.

Whitney Lake is a small quiet lake in Hawley, PA near Lake Wallenpaupack.  I spent many summers here with my kids, quilting whenever I could.  On occasion I now offer quilt retreats here for small groups of women that include instruction, food and lodging. If the weather permits, we take morning walks and eat dinner on the dock.  With very few distractions, other than blue herons, ducks and the occasional bald eagle, it is the perfect place to foster creativity.

For the mosaic pet portraits, here are the details: 
* Instruction will be provided for creating your own fabric portrait of your pet using a photo that includes creating your unique, individual pattern, choosing fabrics, beginning assembly with instruction for finishing and quilting
* I can accommodate 4 quilters at a time
* Lodging (There are  beds  for 4 split among 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths)
* All meals are included.  (BYOB)
* Morning nature walks, if desired
* Arrive on Thursday afternoon for a light dinner, get to work on Friday morning, leave Sunday after lunch.
* You provide the fabric, sewing machine and sewing supplies.
* You will need to provide a clear hi res photo of your pet and a wide variety of fabrics in many values to match your pet’s colorations.  Scraps are OK.  Tone on tones are great.  Prints and conversation prints are good too. Batiks work also.  We will share.
* You will need to bring 2 yards of 60” wide felt for a design wall (white, grey or black – depending on the color of your pet)
