Who is Violet Craft?
She describes herself on her blog:
I am a licensed designer for Michael Miller Fabrics and distribute my own line of sewing patterns, but mostly I am a momma, a wife, a friend and a maker. I was born in the Old West where I pursued my education in business and finance. The start of my career in software development brought me to the Pacific Northwest where I bagged my man, feathered my nest and stitched it all together. Drawn to art, craft and make-ing, the birth of my first daughter compelled me to ditch my corporate career and seek out my passion.
My children’s apparel line, Kung Fu Bambini, reached boutiques in 2004. My first fabric collection debuted with Michael Miller Fabrics in Spring 2011 along with the first Violet Craft Distinctive Lifestyle Sewing Patterns. I teach sewing and design workshops which are often influenced by my awesomely nerdy former career.
Some of her patterns:
— Forest Abstractions
— Jungle Abstractions

We have extended the deadline until July 15, 2017. That’s the last possible date. We need to inform the hotel how many people are coming. The retreat includes dinner on Friday and Saturday. Hotel accommodations are separate, and you are not required to stay at the hotel to attend the retreat.
