NEW! Weekend Craft Workshops, MOTHER DAUGHTER EDITION!

About This Workshop

The idea behind this workshop came from many conversations with AnnaMaria and Annabel, both of whom have dedicated a lot of time to making things with their kids, and both of whom are, like me, pretty fond of The Ace in Palm Springs. We've decided to converge there, midwinter, with our families in tow, and hope that you'll join us and that, this time, you'll bring along your mothers and / or your daughters.

The format will be a bit more structured than our Weekend Sewing Workshops, but that doesn't mean that you won't have time for some lounging by the pool. Annabel, who is a kids sewing teacher and kids sewing book author, will be leading sewing worshops specifically designed for kids and beginners. Anna Maria will be focussed on the handwork and needlecrafts that she loves, and I'll be teaching some of my favorite projects from Heather Ross PRINTS. Workshoppers will rotate through stations in the most workspace imagineable: The Commune, with a few pitstops at the pool (pretty easy to do, since it's literally part of our event space!) and to enjoy some fabulous meals.

Reserve Your Spot!

If you'd like us to reserve a spot for you, please submit your info via this form. We will get in touch with you about your room options and then ask for a deposit of 50% of the total cost. Workshop fees, which include two days of classes, breakfasts and dinners, and some fun evening events, range from $1875 to $2025 for two people, depending on your room preference. You can view the rooms here. We'll ask you for the balance 90 days before the workshop starts.

We've been doing workshops at The Ace for a few years. To see pictures of past workshops, check this page out. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email us.

And if you'd like to gift this workshop to a mom (hello, last minute mother's day gift!) we can work with you to find a fun way to surprise her.

And not to worry, if you had your heart set on Palm Springs without kiddos, we've got a solo crafties weekend in the works too. Stay tuned!
