Studio 49 7th Annual Retreat

Posted By AMendenhall on July 22, 2012

Join us for our 7th Annual Retreat in the MotherLode September 28-30. This year the retreat will return to the beautiful Tuolumne Trails (http://tuolumnetrails.org/), a family-based camp built on 80 scenic mountain acres of Sierra Nevada wilderness, seven miles east of Groveland.  It is spacious, comfortable and very inviting, and we think it will delight you.

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with others who love the fiber arts.

This year we will give our vendors the opportunity to give details on the wonderful items available in the Vendor Exploratorium again. It was very interesting to hear from them last year.

This year we will host a “Purple Fiber Swap”. Bring 8 oz. of good quality fiber that is dyed purple. Have it packaged and labeled. We will swap and bring back a finished item for next year. It can be combined with other fiber.

The Green fiber from last year will be returned to the original owners.

Ambria Witt, massage therapist, will be back to work the knots from every day life and too much knitting out of us. Be sure to get on her schedule as soon as gets there.

Wear or bring a handmade item to the high tea. It is so inspiring to see what others have done. Our raffle promises to be full of wonderful prizes again. The first raffle will be Friday night.

The full retreat cost is $160.00 or Saturday only with the tea is $40.00 or Saturday only with tea and dinner is $55.00. If you are not a guild member please add $4.50 for insurance.

Please send your registration in as soon as you can – it really helps us with our continued planning and registration is limited. Mark your calendar and finish your wearable, shareable item for Saturday at the retreat!

I hope to see you there.

Let me know if you have any questions.
