WINTER RETREAT   What is a retreat?  
A retreat is a wonderful few days in which to indulge ourselves in our needlework passion with other like-minded stitchers.  It is an opportunity to finish old projects and begin new ones.  It is also a great way to be inspired when you look at all the wonderful projects other stitchers are working on.  This is a totally unstructured event so that you are free to come and go as you please. All meals will be on your own so that you can have the opportunity to visit some of the great restaurants in Williamsburg or enjoy the hotel’s fare.   Williamsburg is a wonderful place to have a stitching retreat.  There are so many wonderful restaurants and plenty of places to shop.  A wonderful needlework shop, Haus Tyrol, is located close to the hotel in addition to a knitting, quilting and bead shop. 
Colonial Williamsburg is close by for those you would like to sight see and there is also a large outlet mall and antique mall within a short driving distance of the hotel. Most importantly, it is an opportunity to see our old friends and make new ones.   We will begin on Thursday morning at 9:00 am when we open the stitching room.  We also plan to have several vendors during the retreat.  What is the cost for this great retreat? The registration fee is $45.00, non refundable.  This includes four days of stitching in a comfortable stitching room and coffee, tea or soda. Please refer to the hotel information tab for rates and registration information.
