Last weekend we escaped the inversion and headed up to the mountain village of Midway, Utah to attend Winnie’s Workshop Valentine’s class and boy, did we have fun…
Winnie’s Workshop is a picturesque country barn owned by mother and daughter duo, Nancy and Meredith who’ve put their heart and soul into making this space a crafter’s heaven.
Nancy, a life-long seamstress, has a larger than life personality and is currently teaching classes on quilting and felting what she calls “wacky woollies”.
Meredith has a bachelors in print-making, a masters in visual art, and is currently teaching classes on letter-pressing and bookbinding.
We were warmly greeted into a Valentine retreat with Nancy at the sewing machine, stitching bright wool hearts to pillow covers, Meredith warming up the vintage letterpress with red ink, and the workshop adorned in heart garlands and fabric, cards, and ribbons galore all ready for us to start crafting!
For the next three hours we made our own letter-pressed Valentine’s cards and crafts, munched on delicious snacks, chatted and laughed, and enjoyed the beautiful and quaint surroundings of the Midway valley and mountains. It was a day to remember, that’s for sure!
Thank you Nancy and Meredith! We had a such a great time!
Click HERE for upcoming classes, make sure to look at the kid classes too.
Please inquire about any special requests, private parties and group discounts. Nancy and Meredith are so great to work with and will work with almost any budget. We are already thinking of future birthday parties and girlie retreats!
We had a crazy good time and know you will too!
Nancy and Meredith will be at the Utah Art Market this weekend (Fri Feb 1st+ Sat Feb 2nd) selling their gorgeous letter-pressed stationary and ‘wacky woollies’…we can’t wait to see what these two talented ladies bring!
