You can make these Retreat Bags with Marilyn this coming Friday, October 6th at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The bags can be made in two different sizes.  And who doesn't need another bag?  It would be great to take one of these bags with you when you go on retreat, but I can think of lots of uses for these bags. I plan to use the small one for my paper piecing supplies when I go to the cottage.  My friend wants me to make her the large one and add a long strap to it. 
As you can see, they have a wide open zipper mouth with pockets inside.  There is also a wire band that gives it shape.  You can buy everything you will need to make these bags at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Call the shop to register and get your supply list. What fun this is going to be.  Hope to see you there!

ATTENTION:  The October calendar is out.  There is a coupon on it that you will want to use.  Click on the Hat on the sidebar to see the calendar and print it if you like, or pick up a copy at the shop.

That looks like a terrific bag, Caroll! Wish I were where you are so I could take that class! The great thing about bags is they can adapt to so many more uses than they are designed for. We all love that.
