Yes! There are still spaces available. Please come join us. It’s not too late to register. Email me at frecklemama at yahoo with any questions, and be sure to spread the word with your stitchy friends and your fellow guild members.
All meals are included in your registration price but there are also kitchenettes in each of the bunk houses. You are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks in addition to the meals provided by The Calvin Center. I know many of you are driving so you might want to bring some goodies for pre-dinner thirsty hour and midnight snacks.
Some of you are also doing really well in your fitness programs and will be looking for the opportunity to keep that up during the weekend. There are trails and a lovely lake to walk around. The bunk houses also have large common rooms with plenty of room for a workout. You should be able to find pictures of all of this on the Calvin Center web page.
Whether you are a Thursday arrival or a Friday arrival, your meals will begin with dinner on that day. You are welcome to arrive any time after 9am on those days so feel free to bring your own lunch or grab lunch nearby if you have a vehicle. Your meals are covered through breakfast on Sunday morning but you are welcome to stay later that day. The final time has yet to be determined by the facility but I will announce it when I know.
The retreat is meant to provide relaxing unstructured time to hang out with friends and work on projects at your own pace. For that reason, there is not a formal schedule outside of meal times. We will have round-the-clock access to the sewing room so we can leave our machine stations set up for the entire weekend.
I do have a few machines available for rental. The cost is $40 for the weekend. They are basic machines. If you are interested in renting a machine or have questions about these machines, please let me know as soon as possible. I need to make sure I have enough for everyone.
Once you are registered, you will be invited to join the Google Group where you can arrange shared transportation, fabric swaps, roomates, etc. If you don’t receive an invitation to the group please let me know.
Can’t wait to see you in April!
