We will be in Wright Hall which has an assortment of regular beds and bunk beds.
- $170 for two night's stay plus 6 meals (Friday night Dinner, Saturday all meals, and Sunday Breakfast and Lunch.) Sample Menus
- If you require a special diet such as gluten free, vegetarian, dairy free, or other, there is a $12 additional fee for the weekend ($182 for the weekend with special needs meals)
- If you would like bedding and towels provided for you, there is an additional $10 fee. Linens are not provided in the building we are in, so you must bring your own sleeping bag/bed linens and towels.
What to bring: Clothes and toiletries, bedding/sleeping bags and pillows, bath towels (unless you would rather pay the $10 bedding/towel fee to have that provided for you), sewing machines, projects, rulers etc. An iron if you really like yours and would like to share. Hiking shoes if you wish to partake in the wild outdoors. Snacks for late night and alcohol if you like (alcohol not allowed in dining room or in public areas when other guests are present).
*Other things we decided would be useful after our first retreat: Lights, as the space we sew in can be a bit dim in some areas. If you have an Ottlight or desk light to light your sewing space, please bring it. Also, the guild has some extension cords, but please bring your own extension cords and power strips
Schedule: When we're not eating or sleeping, we'll probably be sewing! Most of the time we will have Open Sew but we also will have an optional Workshop, Charity Sew, and possibly some group projects. Schedules will be e-mailed out to participants as the retreat date approaches.
The Fine Print:
There are 30 spots available for the weekend. Registration will open Monday, November 10th at 10:00 am.
Payment can be made with check (at a meeting or mailed to our PO Box) or online with debit/credit via Square with a small fee added on (approximately 2.75%). Payment must be received by the guild within 3 weeks of signing up via the form below.
Refund Policy: Full refunds will only be given if your spot is able to be re-sold.
If the 30 spots are not filled with PMQG members by January 27th, we will open up registration to local individual MQG members and other MQGs in the area. *FYI, the last retreat did sell out in 7 days.
