Color Exercise: The “In Full Leaf” pattern designed by Carla Fortney will use overdyed dark wools and “worms” (yours or ours) and apply the principles of hue, value and intensity using darks/mediums/lights to develop your own color plan. There will be a 7.5” x 9.75” pattern on paper for use as an iPad cover using #3 and #4 cuts, and a 9.5” x 12” to use with a #5 and above cut. 18” x 20.5” linen backing will be for sale or you can take a paper pattern home and transfer to the backing of your choice. This one hour exercise will be scheduled throughout the day, at no charge, open to everyone, with no advance registration required.

Write your name and price on the provided label (and by the way, you keep the $) and put it on the sale table. Buyers, bring some $ and be ready to dicker with the sellers to get a good deal!
Fall Party Menu: BBQ chicken, assorted rolls, coleslaw, assorted chips, beverages, and relishes. Assorted desserts (pumpkin, apple & chocolate) with ice cream!

Sightseeing in Riverside
What does Riverside have to offer the traveler on a day trip? Below you will find information on one of Riverside’s most treasured areas.
The Mission Inn and Spa located at 3649 Mission Avenue in historic downtown Riverside is a very famous landmark in Southern California, and is just 2.3 miles from our hook-in venue. With its Spanish Gothic and Mission Revival architecture, beautiful gardens, and wonderful art work of many well-known artists. It is a must-see in Riverside. The hotel lobby/entrance has a carpet that features twenty-one California Missions. There is a clock tower with 500 bells that chime every hour. The hotel rooms are decorated to represent the history of the hotel, all different in their own way. The St. Frances Chapel has four large stained glass windows and two 1906 mosaics by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Many social leaders, entertainers, and eight Presidents have visited the Inn. The Reagan’s and Nixon’s were married and honeymooned there. Guided tours are available.
Adjacent to the Mission Inn is the Mall area with restaurants and shopping in quaint gift shops (a must-visit is Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle’s). Across the street there are antique stores and more restaurants. No cars are allowed in this area, only foot traffic. And on the weekends, parking meters are turned off.
Some of the restaurants are a little adventurous. The Chapel at Tio’s Tacos features walls made of beer bottles, with religious statues and bed post pews. The Taco Station was built inside a former Shell Gas Station.
There are many other wonders to explore along Mission Avenue and within walking distance from the Mission Inn.
