Home of Jolanda offers from 16 October to the 20 October 2017 six students the opportunity to quilt in a quilting bee style environment. During this week Jolanda teaches you to quilt at the next level, be it machine or hand quilting. The holiday offers you a complete package where at the end you have increased your sewing qualities and you get a chance to enjoy some well-earned wellness.
During five days you quilt a complete (patchwork) quilt. Jolanda starts you off with designing your own pattern for your own quilt. This pattern is transferred to your own quilt and on day two you start quilting. The aim is to enjoy the friendly atmosphere that is so well known amongst quilters and benefit from Jolanda’s experiences in machine and hand quilting.
After you have checked in at your local wellness hotel Hotel am Kurpark on Monday, you start the week with a planning session. After lunch you start working on your quilt design. When you have EQ7 you can design it on the pc, otherwise Jolanda teaches you how to design from hand. The days after you quilt and quilt and quilt… and talk and laugh and talk and laugh… and quilt…
Three out of four nights you eat a local menu at your hotel Hotel am Kurpark (www.harzhotel.net). Every morning you have breakfast here as well, but you take care of your own lunches.
On Wednesday afternoon you take a break from quilting and Jolanda and her team take you on a small tour through Bad Lauterberg im Harz with a surprise visit to a local manufacturer. That evening you eat somewhere in the town with Jolanda and her team. On Wednseday and Thursday night there is a professional physiotherapist in the hotel to treat your shoulders and higher back. On Thursday afternoon you get an extra two hours off to do some shopping in the small town Bad Lauterberg im Harz. There is plenty of choice for your presents for the folks at home and to spoil yourself with some new outfits.
This quilt holiday comes as a complete package. Included in the price are quilt teaching for five days, a demo at a local manufacturer, a professional massage, a luxurious hotel room for yourself for four nights, four breakfasts, four evening meals and free use of the wellness area in your wellness hotel.
Jolanda teaches in two languages, German and English. She will adapt the program for the week to your needs and level of experience. It is important to her that you enjoy the week and get to take your own quilt design home.
