About the Course

Join Pat Archibald for a week of creativity surrounded by fabulous alpine landscapes. We’ll be staying at the wonderful Chateau des Comtes de Challes, a stunning 15th Century chateau that has been lovingly restored and retains many of its traditional features. There will be great opportunities to learn new quilting techniques during the 4 days of workshops, as well as to explore the local area on two included excursions to Lyon and Annecy.
