Maker(s in the) Mountain(s) Sewing Retreat, May 2019
Creativity, Nature, Community. My three favorite things, and I would so love to share them with you!
Join me for 3 1/2 days in Carnelian Bay in North Lake Tahoe, California of sewing, screen printing, embroidering, cooking and eating good food and drink, playing in the big blue lake beneath the big green trees, talking, laughing and building friendships we will never forget.
We will start with a welcome dinner celebration on Wednesday, May 8th, get settled and start getting to know one another while we craft by the fire (and eat cake!). Thursday we will custom screen print fabric, play in the lake (swimming and on stand up paddle boards), sew a Nani Iro double gauze Washi Dress, and learn to make the very best pizza dough from scratch. Friday will have more playing in the lake, a lunch time adventure to explore more of the amazing nature the area has to offer, plus turning that custom screen printed fabric into a Pony Tank (thanks to the generous sponsorship of Chalk and Notch Patterns) and one of a kind pajama pants based on our own perfect measurements, and more crafting and community by the fire that night. Saturday is our last chance to play in the lake and a big goodbye breakfast, then we all head home, back to real life, reinvigorated to be our best selves and live our best lives.
You will go home with a screen printing screen and squeegee, a dress that makes you smile all day every time you wear it, the most comfortable, completely one of a kind pajamas, patterns to sew again and again, whatever embroidery or coloring you create at night, and 10 new, true friends.
There are only 10 spaces available at a range of price points dependent on your personal accommodation decision. You get to choose for yourself what is right for you, more privacy and relaxation, or more friendship and bonding, and if you have a friend you would like to share a room with, just let me know and I will put you together!
All food, drink, adventure, sewing patterns, fabric and supplies are included with your reservation. I have 5 sewing machines I can bring for those flying in or who can otherwise not bring their own machine with them. I will be in touch in April with a questionnaire to ask whether you are bringing your own machine and if you have any dietary restrictions or preferences I should know about when planning so that I can make sure everyone has the best experience possible.
For those traveling from more than a drive away, you can fly into either Reno or Sacramento and I will get you from the airport to the retreat! You don’t even have to worry about renting a car or taking an Uber, just get in touch with me about your travel plans before booking a flight and I will either pick you up or make arrangements for you to get to Carnelian Bay included in the cost of the retreat.
Due to the nature of the retreat and the organization I need to do to make it happen, your reservation is non refundable. If for whatever reason you find yourself unable to attend after booking, I will work with you to find someone to take your place, but can not guarantee that a replacement will be found. Please read all legal terms and conditions before booking your spot.
