The planning for our third Spring Sewing for Summer Soaring kite making retreat in Parksville is going
well. This year we are very pleased to have Sharon Musto from Alberta lead a class. Sharon has won many
kite awards both nationally and internationally for both sewing and appliqué.

Returning instructor Paul Horner joins Sharon. He has been an instructor each year of our retreat and is well
known for his dedication and skill in putting together colorful and striking kites. Paul’s project will require no
sewing, so those who don’t sew can still come to Parksville and leave with a very unique kite.
(Details about his project will be announced in early January).
