Calling Illinois Quilters!

I have a couple of Quilt Show Passes for the Salt Creek Quilters Guild in Hinsdale, Illinois right here in my hot little hands for one lucky quilter and a friend!

I received these passes with the following notice:

Hello, Bonnie!

I don’t know when you will be arriving for your Craftours Cocoon in Naperville, IL, but if there is time we would love to have you see our show.

Enclosed please find 2 tickets for you and a friend, with our compliments and thanks for everything you do.
I emailed Sandy back and told her that I will be unavailable on these dates, I’m actually flying into Chicago on April 3rd and my flights have already been arranged so there isn’t going to be time.

And then I asked her if I could use them in a drawing here on the blog!  And she said yes!!

Come Join Me Here!!

What is a Cocoon?  Think of it as a comfortable place to learn and expand your horizons with 4 days of instruction from 4 internationally known teachers, authors and lecturers!

Imagine that this Cocoon is presented in the beautiful surroundings of a first class hotel, the Marriott in Naperville!

If you don't like to fly overseas, if you don't like to cruise -- this is a Stateside Stay-cation tailor-fit for you!

Along with the wonderful classes the other teachers will be teaching --you can plan on a Midnight Flight workshop with me!

Class information and supply list found under the Lectures & Workshops tab at the top of the blog HERE.


The cocoon starts on a Sunday night and continues through the week until Thursday evening. We will feature four “master” instructors for each cocoon event, and the week will be filled with an extraordinary opportunity to participate in something very, very special. Our Craftours Cocoon™ will not only offer four master workshops taught by incredibly talented instructors, but you can also enjoy informative presentations & lectures, exhibits, shopping, receive special gifts, participate in fun & games, and have a chance to win some free trips. 

The event will also feature the use of brand new Janome sewing machines, and include four nights accommodations at the Chicago Marriott Naperville, daily breakfast, two special dinners, and more!
The price of this amazing weekend: $889.00 per person based on double occupancy.  Bring a friend! Payment due in full at sign up.

Space is limited and based on first come-first served. Single rooms are available for an additional $325.00pp.

Our cocoon takes place just prior to the Quilt Festival in Rosemont, Illinois (April 7 - 9, 2016), if you would like to be able to enjoy the Quilt Festival, you can extend your stay up to 3 additional nights for the incredible price of $92 per person, per night. These additional nights include taxes and breakfast each day.

I have had many many requests from those who live near by asking if they could attend the workshops and the evening events, but sleep at home in their own beds.

While the "Stay at the Marriott" all inclusive price is $887.00 I can see why those who live near by would want to stay at home and save their money for FABRIC! And Notions! And other quilty goodies --

So for those who LIVE within the Naperville area who want to come to this event, we have a "sleep at home" deal for you!

The workshops, the lectures and evening events will be included in your Local-Student registration of $664.00. You sleep at home, you eat breakfast at home, and then you come play!
For more information, visit my Craftours Page HERE.

I can't wait to see you in Naperville, IL in April!  Be sure to tell the folks at Craftours that you read about here from me when you register!
