Spring Retreat at Watson Homestead, in Painted Post, NY
March 11th-13th with Extra Day Option (10th-13th)
Scheduled for March 11-13, 2016. Held at the Watson Homestead Conference and Retreat Center, 9620 Dry Run Road, Painted Post, NY 14870. Arrive Thursday, March 10th, or Friday, March 11th and sew until 3pm on Sunday, March 13th! The Watson Homestead accommodations and food are top notch, and our sewing area in the main lodge lower level is large and well-lit with full-sized sewing tables and plenty of electrical outlets. 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 for a double occupancy room with 5 meals is $181 for Friday and Saturday nights, and you can arrive a day early (Thursday) for an extra $35 plus any meal costs. Included in the set price are five meals provided by the retreat center: breakfast on Friday, three meals on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. Plans are in the works for a potluck supper on Thursday and Friday. There is plenty of space in the fully equipped kitchen area for any snacks and treats we bring along!
