This workshop is an opportunity to make with like-minded creatives, exploring and sharing your sewing passion!' Diane  


 "I love creating outer garments in the fall.... The process starts with an inspiration, a seed, a unique fabric combination. The metaphor of 'meaning' can reveal new aspects of sewing, textile play and silhouettes. We'll explore construction techniques and  how wearing impacts silhouettes, details  and closure design. Start dreaming of a garment you've always wanted ..and join us to create it. "                                Diane

“I think Ashland is the perfect spot for a DOL retreat.  What a beautiful little town.  Holding it at the Historic Ashland Springs Hotel is so convenient.  You can walk to all the terrifies shops and restaurants and even see a play if you like.  I’ve been to lots of DOL retreats and this one was super!”                           2019 Participant
