IT’S SUMMER AND TIME TO TRAVEL! I’m looking forward to attending quilting retreats—local, state, and national—which is one of my favorite things to do. I have been going to the Iowa Quilters Guild Officers retreat for more than 25 years. I distinctly remember the first time I attended because I was pregnant with my oldest son. I hadn’t told anyone and slipped out frequently to nap. I feel like I slept through most of that retreat! When I travel by car to quilting retreats, I take four bags, below, two for sewing machines—one is a backup—one for fabric, and one for clothes. Often the suitcase containing fabric is larger than the one containing clothes! We polled our staff members, teachers, and retreat hosts for their favorite tips and suggestions for participating…

why didn’t i think of that?

After I wash a large piece of fabric, I roll it on too a POSTER SHIPPING TUBE to keep it wrinkle- and crease-free until I’m ready to use it in a project. JENNIFER SOIKAMilwaukee Because my sewing room is small and oddly shaped, I need to go to another room tohave enough distance for viewing a layout on a design wall. To accommodate this, I built a FOLDING SCREEN and covered it with FLANNEL. Now I can arrange a quilt on the flannel while in my sewing room, close and latch the screen, and carry it to another room for viewing. HELEN WEBERHumble, Texas Before I leave for a quilt retreat, I fill a BUNCH OF BOBBINS with white, off-white, and/or gray thread. That way if I run out, I can quickly stick a…

control chaos at a retreat

1 YOUR CAR Avoid the struggle of transporting large items to your retreat. An art portfolio (available at crafts and art stores) can hold hard-to-pack items such as a cutting mat, a wool pressing mat, acrylic rulers, and quilt tops. The portfolio handle makes it easy to carry supplies to and from your car. 2 YOUR WORK SPACE Keep your retreat workstation tidy with a flexible silicone organizer (available at office supply stores). It conforms to all shapes of scissors, rulers, marking tools, and other notions so you can keep your most-used items handy. If you’re sharing a retreat table with multiple people, it’s a good idea to label your tools with colorful ribbons or washi tape to avoid mix-ups. 3 YOUR PROJECTS Corral your retreat projects in a space-saving file organizer that hangs under…
