Carolinas Region Spring Retreat: Reconnecting on the Ridge
May 31, 2019 - June 2, 2019
Flat Rock, NC
This event has concluded. See more Events.
The Carolinas Region will host a relaxing stitch-in from Friday, May 31 to Sunday, June 2, 2019, at the Mountain Lodge and Conference Center in Flat Rock, NC, This venue is conveniently located right off exit 53 on I-26.
We will start with an outdoor reception (cash bar only) on Friday evening in a very scenic, secluded outdoor area with a waterfall. We will then gather in the ballroom to get acquainted and to start stitching. On Saturday, you will be able to stitch all day. However, we will offer some optional alternatives if you would like something more.
Our Saturday morning class is already filled, but there will be many other activities to enjoy. For example, on Saturday afternoon, a professional photographer will give us pointers about how to best photograph our needlework. That evening Sandy Washington (owner of “Sandy’s X-Stitch on the go”) will demonstrate how to make cute and useful stitching accessories out of common household items. Then, nationally known teacher Terri Bay will discuss the history of whitework. Interspersed among these activities we will have opportunity baskets, a silent auction, games, favors, door prizes, and more. We will end with our Region Board of Directors meeting on Sunday morning.
In order to keep the costs down, we are not planning any group meals. However, the hotel offers a free hot breakfast buffet every morning. In addition, each room in the hotel has a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator, cooktop (a few units have a full oven), microwave, sink, and some basic kitchen supplies (dishes, glasses, silverware, pots and pans, etc.) so you will be able to make all of your meals in your room if you do not want to venture out to try one of the many wonderful restaurants in the vicinity.
If you need more incentive, we will be just 10 minutes from “Sandy’s X-Stitch on the go” in Hendersonville and just 45 minutes from “Sassy Jacks Stitchery” in Weaverville. There are also a number of interesting local attractions that might catch your interest.
Act now because registration ends on April 30. You won’t want to miss this retreat! Please see the attached flyer for the registration form and more details. We hope to see you there!
