WebFabrics Fall Retreat


The WebFabrics Spring Retreat was so fun we decided to host a Fall Retreat from October 11-14, 2024.  This retreat will be packed with fun, sewing, laughing and learning.  

WebFabrics Retreats aims to provide a happy sewing place where you can sew all you want, learn a few new skills, and enjoy the company of friends.  Whether you are finishing up UFOs, starting a new project, attending a demo, shopping, or just mingling around the room socializing….

How you spend time at our Fall Quilt Retreat is completely up to you. 

The agenda is being planned now and will unfold as more details are ironed out.  The agenda is intended to give you a plan for the event to allow you to participate as much as you want in any structured event.  Our goal is to have a few “extra fun” things thrown in because we just can’t help ourselves. The total cost of the retreat is still being finalized and will be determined as the agenda is solidified.  You can reserve a seat for $50.

Special Guests:


Jenn
Jennifer Worthen - Slightly Biased Quilts

With a lifelong love of bright colors and a PhD in Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics, I bring a unique blend of creativity and precision to my quilt designs.

Slightly Biased Quilts started as a bias tape Etsy shop, but my passion for quilting soon took center stage. I’ve been quilting since 2009, and I find immense joy in transforming beautiful fabrics into stunning quilts, even with simple patterns. My focus is on creating beginner-friendly, scrap-busting quilt patterns that are quick and easy to assemble. I love helping new quilters experience the satisfaction of completing a beautiful project.

While I appreciate classic quilt blocks, I enjoy putting a modern spin on them with my fabric choices and color palettes. This playful approach lets you create quilts that feel fresh and unique. In addition to designing downloadable PDF patterns, I’m also a published quilt designer, a quilt instructor, and a lecturer. I’m a member of the DC Modern Quilt Guild and absolutely love connecting with fellow quilters at shows and events.

Jenn will be joining us for the entire retreat.  She will present a trunk show and talk about her journey as well as teaching a Binding Class.  

The Quilt Binding class walks students through the steps of making and attaching quilt binding to a quilt. Students will bring pre-cut strips of fabric and enjoy the use of a binding machine that will do all the ironing for them! Then students will attach the binding to their quilt, by machine for the front side and then finishing the back side by hand. This class is excellent for anyone who needs a little help in making their binding more precise and clean!

Materials Needed: ? Quilt of any size (quilted and trimmed but not bound) ? Strips of binding fabric cut at 2 ½ inches wide, at the appropriate length for the quilt ? Thread matching the binding fabric or backing fabric ? Clover clips (included in kit at quilt shows) ? Small scissors (included in kit at quilt shows) ? Hand-sewing needle (included in kit at quilt shows) ? Sewing gauge or other small ruler (included in kit at quilt shows) ? Sewing machine and supplies/accessories (don’t forget the power cord!) with a walking foot
