Nancy's Quilting Divas Retreat

Orlando, FL
February 11-16, 2014
(Tuesday to Sunday)


It may be cold where you are, but the weather is great here!

So bring your shorts and flip flops and join us at my Quilting Divas Retreat in Orlando, FL. Now we all know there is a little quilting diva in each of us just waiting to emerge.  And in my 4 days of instruction you too just might discover that diva within.

You have the option of working on the Retreat project or if you prefer, bring your own project. Orlando offers some of the best weather in the world, great airline connections and the resort has unbelievable shopping and restaurants nearby (150+ store Premier outlet mall).

The resort I've chosen, (The Floridays Orlando Resort) is listed as one of the top 10 resorts in the US with luxurious surroundings to provide you with a first class experience at an affordable price.  Check in time is 4:00 PM beginning with a wine and cheese celebration.

What previous retreat students are saying

Cheryl L. 
"What a wonderful week I had learning new techniques and making new friends.  Nancy is a talented teacher and it was a great experience for me.  The resort was wonderful and the accommodations superb."

Irene M.
"Again I want to thank you and tell you that this retreat was way beyond my expectations"

Sarah M.

“Nancy made learning Thread Painting fun and easy. Her teaching style is outstanding!!! Not only does she talk students through each step, she demonstrated each new stitch. She had a camera projecting what she was sewing on her machine live on a large screen. After each demonstration, she stopped by each student’s station offering encouragement and additional instruction.

With each section of the design we were Thread Painting, Nancy had prepared written instructions complete with diagrams, text and photos. As the design progressed, there was a booklet that detailed what needed to be done next. The pages demonstrated what stitch to use to achieve the “look” that was needed for that part of the design. Often a small chart at the top of the page, outlined the needs for the section we were to “paint”. 


The Retreat was more then a place to learn a new sewing technique. It was an opportunity to meet new people who had a similar interest. Friendships developed and strengthened by the optional social activities Nancy arranged for us. Without a doubt she went above and beyond to make this Retreat a memorable experience. 


I came away completely confident that I know how to paint using thread. Thank you Nancy!"
