Retreaters! A question for you.

Would you be interested in a workshop on making a coordinating pillowcase for your quilts?

It is the 'hot dog' method of making a quick pillowcase, good for gifting your quilt or making matching pillowcases for the bed.

It's a quick & easy workshop/project.

If there's enough interest, I'll add it to the retreat information that I'm putting out soon.

Not my cup tea but I can do other things while you're doing that.

It's a really easy way to make pillowcases. I made 14 for a bazaar last year, in kiddie prints.
They are very wrinkled because I had already folded and ironed them before I decided to take the picture.

I made over 50 of them a few years ago but wouldn't mind making a couple. I had in mind to make some travel pillow size anyway.

Already know how. My sewing machine will be purring away on something else during your workshop, but thanks!
For those who are not familiar with this method--it is worth the demo.

I've made sooo many pillowcases, but I can occupy my machine w/ other fun things...go for it.
Teresa, your pc are adorable!

Absolutely, I had thought about making matching ones for all the quilts I gave as gifts last year, maybe that can be their gifts this year.

Yes please! I have already made pillowslips to go with my own quilts, but would be good to see how you do it.

I'm always up to learning something new. My dd is wanting to redo her bedroom, so I could apply this to her new ensemble.

What do we need to bring for it?

I'll echo what the others have said: I already make them using this method but if you don't then you'll love finding out how to do it. Very quick and easy. And it turns out a very nice pillowcase!

Sounds like you have plenty of interest! I'll probably sit this one out to work on other things.

When Sharon was making her 50 I got caught up it it too and made them for Christmas stocking stuffers.

I agree it is a fast project and makes a very nice pillowcase. I think it will be fun!

Sure, I'll participate. I have made some before, but it was a long time ago.

I have made them, but could always use a refresher!
