Special Guest Instructor:  Alix Graham-Michel

Presented by The Viking Sewing Galleries on the Wasatch Front

 Alix Graham-Michel is coming to our area for a fabulous 4 day
event in August. It is being held at Sherwood Hills Resort just
outside of Logan. We have a block of rooms reserved if you want to
stay there or you can drive each day. I have attached a picture of
the project, a beautiful Christening/Blessing gown, created from fine
linen and French Valencia laces. All fabrics, laces, threads, needles
and stabilizers will be in the kit. There will also be a Surprise
project (we supply our own fabric for) to change the pace. As we
know, Alix will show us much, much more!

Date - August 8,9,10,11 The first class on the 8th is from 7 pm to 9
pm. The next day, the 9th, we start at 8:30 am.
Place - Sherwood Hills Resort

$150.00 For the event fee, due now at the Viking Sewing Gallery  Store
(cash, check, credit card) Breakfast, lunch and a light afternoon
snack will be included with dinner on your own. I'm sure we can
figure that one out!
$175.00 For the kit fee, due the first day of class (cash or check
only, goes directly to Alix)
Designer Diamond Delux will be available or bring your own Designer
Diamond or Designer Diamond Delux to sew on.

Information on room reservation rate to come ( around $99); we are
firming that up. You can share with a buddy if you wish. Rooms are
not included.
Limited Seating available so call for your reservation soon!
We have had some questions about what do you do with this gown if
you don't have an impending birth. You can frame it, donate it, sell
it but my personal favorite ( and what I plan on doing) put it away
for a special grandchild or great grandchild or great great grandchild
for them to know a little part of you. There will be many techniques
taught that can be applied to lots of other projects.

We are going to have a smashing great time so please plan on attending!
