Spring 2015 Retreat at Watson Homestead, in Painted Post, NY

Scheduled for March 19-22, 2015. Held at the Watson Homestead Conference and Retreat Center, 9620 Dry Run Road, Painted Post, NY 14870.  Arrive Thursday, March 19th, or Friday, March 20th and sew until 3pm on Sunday, March 22nd! The Watson Homestead accommodations and food are top notch, and our sewing area in the main lodge lower level is large and well lit. The motel-style rooms have two double beds and a private bath, and are adjacent to the dining room and sewing area. In addition to the relaxing sewing and sharing, our retreats always include a few planned activities for entertainment!  This year we've added a new "bingo-style" quilting game, along with favorites like "Left, Right, Center"; sharing orphan blocks; door prizes; and a freebie table.  A masseuse will be available to provide massages for us - especially nice after a day spent at the sewing machine! It's always such a good time sewing, sharing, laughing, and relaxing together.

 Cost is $179 for Friday and Saturday nights, and an extra $63 for Thursday night.  Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided on Saturday; and brunch on Sunday, but no meals on Thursday or Friday.  We'll make plans for a potluck supper on Thursday. There are usually plenty of leftovers to eat on Friday, and folks often eat out or bring their own meals . There is plenty of space in the kitchen area for any snacks and treats we bring along!
More details will be forwarded to each participant regarding the $75 deposit (due now!) and meal updates. Contact Darlene W. or Sally G. with any questions, their contact info is on your copy of the guild roster.
