CRAFT NAPA Blog Hop – My turn!


It was my honor to be invited to be a part of CRAFT NAPA, hosted by Pokey Bolton.

What is CRAFT NAPA?  Well, it’s a 3 day art retreat in the heart of wine country in California, kicking off on January 6th and going until the 9th.  Spending January in Napa, California instead of snowy Illinois?  Don’t mind if I do!

So what will I be doing there?  Well, I’m hosting the evening “sip and sew” after parties!  There will be an open sewing room where you can come in and sew on one of the awesome BERNINA sewing machines provided by Meissner’s Sewing.  Or you can come finish your class project.  Or you can get a demo of various sewing machine feet. Or you can join me in a fun sewing challenge!  The list is endless!


There’s a couple other evening events to let you know about too!  There’s the Blend Your Own Vintage event on Thursday, where you will learn about wine and compete to make a blend that each participant will take home.  How cool is that?



Then there’s the Artist Market on Friday!  Vendors from all over will set up and you can shop their wares to your heart’s content!  I’ll be one of the vendors, so if you have been thinking about getting one of my sewing skull designs on a shirt or mug, this will be your chance!

CRAFT NAPA is still open to register, so it’s NOT TOO LATE to join us for the fun!

WANT TO WIN SOMETHING GREAT?  Pokey is giving away a $500 gift certificate to, and everyone who comments on my post below will be entered to win!  But you only have until tomorrow morning to enter, so comment quick!
