To officially register, complete the Retreater Info form, add to your cart, and pay the nonrefundable $500 retreat fee. This fee includes lunch and dinner Thursday-Saturday and Sunday lunch, helps secure our class space, and includes special goodies for you as well. This year, we are not requiring class registration to attend. All classes are optional add-ons to your retreat experience, but are highly recommended! Our guest teachers are some of the best in the nation and we’re very excited about their class offerings!
Don’t forget to bring your own projects to stitch from your stash alongside the company of other needlepoint enthusiasts!
In the coming weeks, we will be emailing registrants with important hotel booking links (we have a block rate for rooms), itineraries, and more. Let’s make 2022 the year for you to grow in your hobbies, self-care, and community!
