What to expect
Bring projects to work on - You may not want to take a class and if you choose not to do this you will want to bring projects to work on. Your free time is your own to do as you please. We will have demonstrations and optional mini classes throughout the retreat. You can participate in these classes if you wish. We do not include a supply list for these classes because they are smaller and do not require much fabric. You can shop an MSQC shop or browse through one of the area stores. There is always something to do in Hamilton.
Meals - We set out a continental breakfast each morning at . We offer a daily lunch and dinner. You are on your own to enjoy the area food if you wish to do that. Our meals are served for up to 45 minutes and then put away. We ask that you be present when we are serving. If you come back to the Sewing Center an hour or two following the serving time you can still eat but you will be on your own to reheat what was served for that meal.
Snack Table - We encourage you to bring a snack to share with the group.
Show & Tell - We will have a Show & Tell time on Saturday night for those who want to participate.
Shipping - There is free shipping for all of our guests who spend over $100 in the shops.
