There will be a stitched smalls (pin cushion, ornament, scissor fob, etc) exchange Friday afternoon. If you bring (or mail) a small, you will go home (or have mailed) a small. The size limit is 60 stitches by 60 stitches. Only the small should be in the wrapped package, no need to add anything else. Zoom attendees should mail the smalls package to the shop so it's received prior to September 15th. This is a voluntary exchange.
If you choose the in-person option your $465 registration fee covers two projects, all of the special retreat goodies, Friday dessert reception, three lunches as well as time with the designers. (Accommodations not included, more information with special room rates will be sent in a postregistration email.)
If you choose the Zoom option your $265 registration fee covers two projects, the Zoom meetings with the two designers, and all of the special retreat goodies (shipping included). We look forward to having you join us from the comfort of your favorite stitching spot!
