We had such a great time at the Paper Crown Spring Glitter Retreat in May, we just couldn’t wait to announce the Fall Glitter Retreat. This retreat will have several “firsts” that we are excited to share with you.

Our first “first” is this retreat will have 4 artists instead of 3. The artists for the Fall Glitter Retreat are: Lesa Dailey (IG - lesadailey), Jenn McGlon (IG - noodleandlou), Lisa Waring (IG - fullmoonwares), and Mary Warren (IG - sewmaryhappy). A pretty spectacular line-up, wouldn’t you agree?

Lesa has taught at Paper Crown for years and creates amazing vintage vignettes from the most ordinary supplies. Lesa is designing a new piece specifically for the Fall Glitter Retreat: a mushroom house with very charming strawberry people.

The second “first” is a collaborative project between Jenn, Lisa, and Mary. Their project is a travel needlework roll.

Mary is famous for her pieced strawberry quilt, and she will scale it down to a miniature version for the front of the roll. Mary is a master of color blending, so you know it will be a joyful strawberry.

Lisa will once again work her spun cotton and sculpting magic to create realistic strawberries to hang from the roll and the daintiest strawberry pins.

Jenn will finish the project with a cute and clever back which will be an adorable home for all your needlework necessities. This talented trio has created a project that will make traveling with your favorite stitchy hobby a breeze.


The Fall Glitter Retreat will be held at the Stories Building, 800 Austin Ave. It is the perfect retreat location–spacious, light, coffee bar on site, and close to Paper Crown. Classes are from 10 am - 5 pm Monday through Wednesday, and 10 am - 12 pm on Thursday. Our third “first” is this adding a  half day, which was suggested at the last

Retreat as a day to finish projects, ask questions, or chat with friends before leaving. 


Monday through Wednesday, we will have a catered lunch by  Chef Kim  at the Stories building. We are also planning some sort of evening event. It’s possible this event will raise the retreat standards to new heights. More on this as plans progress.


Cost for the Fall Glitter Retreat is $1075. A deposit of $450 is required at the time you sign up. The balance of $625 is due August 31st. Cost includes: teachers’ instruction, project kits, 3 catered lunches and snacks, 1 evening event (dinner or heavy hors-d’oeuvres), swag, discounted shopping, and a few other surprises. Cost does not include lodging or travel.


Jenn, Lesa, Mary, Lisa, and myself are having so much fun planning this event and tossing around “strawberry ideas.” We hope you will join us. I guarantee you will go home inspired and with new friends.

9/23-26 Fall Glitter Retreat
