Are you involved in crafting, but jealous because scrapbookers and quilters seem to have multiple retreats to choose from?  Well, this is  the answer!! 

Crafty Ladies Weekend Retreat (CLWR) is for ALL crafters who need some time off from “real life” to work on craft projects with the comradery of fellow crafters!

Bring your sewing, knitting, crocheting, card making, painting, anything!  Start a new project, finish a project, learn a new skill… 

Join us for a fun filled weekend!

Some things to keep in mind...

  • We have 30 - 6' tables.  Each registrant will have her own table.  Tables will be set up classroom style.

  • Floor space is limited, so please refrain from bringing excess supplies.

  • Nothing may be attached to meeting room walls by any means.

  • A portable design wall will be available for quilters.

  • Irons will not be provided, so BYO, if needed.

  • It is recommended that you bring your own heavy duty extension coard and/or power strip and be prepared to share, if necessary.

  • Music is a personal preference.  If you plan to listen to music, please use ear buds or headphones as a courtesy to others.

  • Registration fee includes a dinner on Friday and Saturday nights and  a light breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
