 If you are not accustomed to our culture, just a few pointers:
•  We want you to feel comfy and at home with us. 
• Lunches will be brought in... Sally has some ideas, but we are not opposed to changing things up by what the group would like.
• Snacks, coffee, water, etc will be around all day.
• Kitchen is available for simple things - microwave, hot water, toaster, etc.
• For this venue, most people will have had breakfast at their own homes or hotels - but again, we'll have goodies, too.
• We always get lucky and have local people help out by bringing a couple of ironing boards, irons, cutting mats
• Flying in and don’t want to haul a machine? We’ve also been fortunate to have local gals driving in be kind enough to bring some extra machines for the “fliers” to borrow - we can't guarantee that, but we have never had a problem. Again, the secret Facebook group is the place to arrange all that.
You’re going to enjoy your time with us! 

Bring your own wine or other alcoholic beverage if you choose.
You also may bring in your favorite beverages like soda, etc. A small refrigerator is available. 
There is coffee, tea & ice provided.
BYOCC - Bring your own coffee cup!   We have typical paper and styro ware.
Keurig - If you have a favorite coffee or other Keurig-able beverage, feel free to use ours!

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 site (and if you work on something else, nobody has heartburn over it - finish that quilt that has been collecting dust if you want!)

Sew the new BGB PRO bag, if you desire!  Details will be given in your secret group for this venue!

This is the BGB with some fantastic upgrades and features... if you want to make this one, we'll include the pattern & hardware for it.   
Be sure to ask about the fabric and zippers you'll need to bring.  

4 days of sewing, breakfast snackies, beverages, lunches and patterns are included.
Hardware for the new BGB Pro bag, too.
Dinners are on our own - we'll have a "committee meeting" to make it as fun and desirable as we can for everyone.
We can have food brought in if everyone wants to stay and sew while they eat.

Saturday night: optional - Colorado Floyd!

This is a really fun Pink Floyd tribute band at a fun venue in Colorado Springs. Mary Ellen is our group's Groupie that knows the ropes and will get us great seating. Admission is FREE... seating is around tables - so very comfy with lots of space. The music is NOT deafeningly loud.. we found it very fun when Jim, MaryEllen and I went in November, 2018. We're arranging for a "short bus" (my son driving) to take us... stay tuned in the secret Facebook group for details on that. :) Also, if you do NOT want to take this in, you may stay and sew. We want you all to have a great time. 
Sunday: Doors open at 7:30
