Fall Retreat

Arrive as early as Thursday  Any sewing on Thursday is on your own projects.  Meals are also on your own, but we might get together for a potluck Thursday evening.  Friday morning will be a bit waffley.  You might choose to take a jaunt to Campobello for Eleanor's tea (free if we go to the early one), but you need your passport.  Quoddy lighthouse is on the way as is Monica's Chocolates.  Provide your own lunch - go out or bring in to the sewing room.  Friday night supper will be a chowder fest.  Your first project is a group activity with all material provided and begins after the dishes are washed.  We might get going on the Sea Glass quilt or Hilary's runner, or a pillow, or an apron, or a bag.  Or, just work on your own projects.  The rest of the weekend's sewing is like that - pick and choose from our projects or do your own. Material's list will be sent.  We provide 3 meals on Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast.  We do need to clean out of the dorms by 10 a.m. and the sewing room by 1:00.  The cost is as follows:  Thursday - Sunday: $210 for top bunk, $240 for bottom  Friday - Sunday: $170 for top bunk, $200 for bottom.  Each room will have 3 to 4 people and each room has a lovely private bathroom and lockers.  A $50 non-refundable deposit is required ASAP since we need to reserve the correct number of rooms. If you need a private room, that most likely can be arranged.  We are accepting a few day students at $120.
