I am a new quilter, can I attend this retreat? If you have a sewing machine and a project to work on- yes you can attend. All skill levels are welcome. We all started somewhere!
What projects do I work on? Bring your own projects to work on, and catch up on your WIPs. Pack some handwork too, that way if you get tired of machine sewing, you can sit, relax, have a glass of wine and chat with others.
What supplies do I need to bring? Please bring your sewing machine and your basic sewing kit. (rotary cutter, measuring tape, scissors, thread etc) If you have cutting supplies you would like to bring, there will be some room on your table for these. We hope to set up a cutting station and a few pressing stations for all attendees to use.
How do I register? You can register online by filling out the form and a retreat representative will contact you about paying the $100 deposit .
I need my meals to be: Gluten Free/ Vegetarian/Food Allergy Specific etc is this possible? The Elm Hurst will accommodate Dietary Requirements and a $3.50 charge will apply per meal. Please call the Inn before the Retreat and let them know your requirements.
My birthday is coming up, can someone pay for my deposit as a gift? Yes, just have them print off the registration form with your name and mail it with the deposit. Happy Birthday! and enjoy your gift.
Can I bring in my own snacks and wine? YES! Feel free to have snacks and drinks while you are sewing and in your hotel room.
