Rooms are comfy and air conditioned.
About this retreat:
This is an “open sew” type “workshop”. Sally floats around the room and is very helpful. She also does some demos throughout the weekend with some great tips and tricks. Sew any project you’d like from the sewlikearockstar.com site (and if you work on something else, nobody has heartburn over it - finish that quilt that has been collecting dust if you want!)
We will be able to accept 26 attendees in the main hall. We also may have the use of a second meeting room for this event – so stay tuned! We may try to do something special in there or use it for more sewing spaces.
