The Stash Bash

Announcing 2014 Stash Bash Registration dates!


Registration for The Stash Bash in April will begin in just a few weeks.  Attendees from this year will be allowed to pre-register on November 4th and regular registration will open on Friday, November 8th at noon Eastern time.

The Stash Bash is a retreat with the sole purpose of sewing and laughing, preferably in our pjs.  Search on Instagram for the hashtag #thestashbash to see pics of this year’s inaugural event.  Next year’s event promises to be even better.  We will have one or two optional, informal classes but will spend most of our time dancing sewing, cussing quilting, and stashing bonding.  There will be an on-site fabric shop, a design wall or two, ironing and cutting stations and plenty of giveaways.  We also do optional swaps and fat quarter games.

Registration is limited so please be aware of your options before registration opens.  Read through the following information and then see the registration options and prices below.  I would hate for someone to miss their chance to snag a spot because they were confused about ticket options!

The Stash Bash will be returning to the Calvin Center and there are two types of accommodations.   One choice is a shared bunkhouse with basic camp bunk beds and shared bathroom.  Another choice is a very basic hotel room that has a queen bed, single bed, and private bathroom.  This hotel room option is available in single, double or triple accommodation in very limited quantities.  *Important note: if you are choosing double or triple accommodation you must already have roommates selected!*  Last year I didn’t do that and there were empty spots which left the room only half-paid.  One exception to this is if you are coming Thursday and your roommates aren’t, I can put you with others in the same situation for that night.

Another choice you will need to make is what day you arrive.  Standard registration includes all meals and accommodation from Friday lunch through Sunday breakfast.  Choosing the Thursday add-on ticket will add Thursday dinner, Thursday night accommodation, and Friday breakfast.  If you plan on coming Thursday, you must select both a standard registration ticket AND a Thursday add-on ticket.  The two tickets must be for the same accommodation type.

So, to recap, you need to make three choices:

1) What day will you arrive?  (If Thursday, you will need to buy a Standard Registration ticket AND a Thursday Add-On ticket.)

2) Bunk bed or hotel room?

3) If hotel room: single, double or triple? (If sharing, you must already have roommates in mind who are registering for the same type of tickets.)

Once you have purchased your Stash Bash ticket, ALL meals and accommodations are paid for.  You only need to figure out transportation to and from the event and pack your projects!
