How do you describe fun? Retreat!
At Retreat, you bring your own projects to work on and spend four to five days sewing, chatting, snacking, and more sewing. You have a chance to win a door prize, and will absolutely want to purchase tickets for the fabulous raffle baskets. You can participate in the block drawing and the gift exchange (both entirely voluntary). You can also sign up to have a massage (at your own cost).
Retreat is held at the Grand View Hotel in Wasilla. The cost of Retreat is $25, which covers the sewing room only. You are responsible for making a room reservation if you plan to stay overnight, and for paying for your room. The Hotel gives us a discounted room price, so be sure to mention the Retreat. You are also responsible for all your own meals. Check out the Hotel website www.alaskagrandview.com for room amenities, such as microwave ovens, etc.
Sign-up for Retreat begins at the Guild Membership Meeting in December (for February) and in August (for October). There are 40 slots available for each Retreat, but they go fast!
Retreat is a time to relax, visit with old friends and make some new friends, have a lot of fun, and get a bunch of sewing done! Come join us!
