Portland Art & Soul... Just Around the Corner!

I just can't believe that in less than 2 weeks, we'll all be in Portland, Oregon for our next Art & Soul retreat! This winter had many of us trapped indoors by phenomenal snowfalls and frigid temperatures, so what a great time to get out of the house for creative inspiration... Hallelujah!

March 2-8, 2015
Portland, Oregon

In addition to the wonderful workshops and instructors we have scheduled,  we've got a pretty amazing lineup of events to entertain and stretch the imagination of our attendees. Check out what's going on...

Sunday, March 1st
Opening Night Party
Sunday Eve 6:00pm - 8:00pm

At our Opening Night Party, you'll get to meet-and-greet and make-and-take! Our talented instructors will be there to mix and mingle and chat with our attendees. Patti Calande of Hand Stitching & Embellishing will be the featured demo artist, showcasing the Alabama Chainin Way. In addition, the very talented Susan Schenk, Liz Kettle, and Judy Gula will be having surprise demos throughout the evening. This opening night celebration is definitely worth coming early for!
