FABULOUS Homespun & Holly Event!

Sorry for the absence for the last couple months.  I’m back and am committed to make this social media thing a much higher priority.  It’s a challenge for me but I love reading others blogs so I need to keep up myself.  I’ll catch you up in the next few days but I want to share with you what I did this weekend.

Saturday I had the privilege of teaching at the third annual Homespun and Holly event at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe.  This was my third year and it just keeps getting better and better!  Jan and Brian Hill, the Mother ~ Son team that IS Hollyhill do everything BIG and it’s awesome!

I’m going to give you a little tour of the evening through pictures~

Door and Tree

We were welcomed by a beautiful tree and “Door quilt”.


Beautiful name tags~


and truffles.  We’re off to a great start!


Jan and Brian welcomed everyone and had left a gift at each persons place at the tables.  They told them to open and you should have heard the response!!  When the packages were opened the participants found a jelly roll in their boxes!  What a wonderful gift.

I walked around the room taking in the amazing set up for the event.  Four designers were teaching and each had their own station to teach at.

Here’s the designers, their stations and the project they taught.

A mini tree skirt made of wool was Debbie's project.  It’s oh so cute!  Using some hand dyed wools by Debbie made it extra special.
