Makers Retreat

$ 675.00$ 1,350.00

August 15 – 18th

The Sleeping Lady Resort

Leavenworth, Washington

Join me and other makers for 4 days of making, community, and a chance to step away from your day to day life and just create.

We will be kicking our shoes off, getting comfortable and making friends.  You can never have too many maker friends.

This retreat is for makers and sewists of all levels.  If you have never used a sewing machine, Delia and I will be there to help you through the whole process.

Each participant will receive a goodie bag filled with some of my favourite sewing tools and patterns.

Early Bird Registration is open until April 16th – So grab your ticket for 10% off.

*If you choose to pay in two payments you will be sent an invoice for the second payment on June 1st with payment due no later than June 7th.


Retreat Details

Costs are All-Inclusive |  Except for transportation to the retreat and alcohol outside the drinks provided. 

Lodging | Each guest room is meant to be share by 3 people.  If there are people attending you would like to room with, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate.  We have the ability to change some rooms to private, but there is an additional cost of $250 for private rooms.

Meals | Thursday dinner through Sunday lunch as well as morning and afternoon beverage and snack breaks are included.  At each dinner you will have a drink ticket for either a beer or wine, if you choose.  If you have any food allergies we will arrange with the restaurant to have appropriate food for you.

Materials | All materials for the sewing classes and other craft classes will be provided.  If there is a specific fabric you want to use for one of the projects you are more than welcome to bring that.

Sewing Machines | There will be sewing machines for your use during the retreat, but if you would prefer to bring your own machine you are welcome to do that.

Cancellation | Due to the nature of creating this event, your registration is non-refundable after the time of purchase.  If you are unable to attend though you are more than welcome to transfer your registration to another participant.  If for any reason I am forced to cancel the event you will be refunded the full amount you paid.
