Valentine's Retreat
Sign Up 
Cut off Date Approaching

If you would like to sign up for the Full retreat, sign ups need to be completed by 1/5/2015.  After that date, you will have to reserve your own room. Call the shop soon to get your name on the list!  507-344-0441

Want a place that has great light to work in, a place that you can unload your stuff close to the work room, stay in a place that you don't have to worry about any stairs, and a space that you can spread out in?

 Well we have just the right spot for you!

Our Valentines Retreat is held at the Best Western Plus in Mankato, and we are tucked away in the back of the building which keeps others away.  The lighting is bright, the work area is plenty, and the fun is endless!  

A 6 or 8 foot table and chair is provided, however, if you would like to bring another small table and your favorite sewing can!  We will provide 2 pressing stations, and 2 cutting stations.  We have some extension cords, but if you have one, it is always good to have extra.

The next retreat will be held at the Best Western Plus in Mankato (right off of Highway 169).  The retreat will start at 1:00 p.m. on Friday February 6, 2015 and continue until Sunday February 8, 2015 at 4:00 p.m.

If you are a local and would like to go home at night, we have just the thing for you. 

The Local Retreat includes dinner on Friday and Saturday, lunch on Saturday and Sunday.  The cost for the local retreat is $210.

If you would like to stay at the hotel, our Full Retreat is just the right thing for you.  

The Full Retreat includes everything the local retreat has plus a room to sleep in for Friday and Saturday night at the hotel.  There is also a continental breakfast for the full retreaters.  The cost for the full retreat is $308 (2 person occupancy in hotel room).  If you would like a single room the cost will be $406.

Would you like this as a Christmas Gift???  Don't forget to tell your significant other or your family members that we have special gift certificates just for the Valentine's Retreat!  Wouldn't that make a wonderful Christmas gift, Santa thinks that YOU deserve it!

Call the Shop at 507-344-0441 if you have any questions!

OPEN Sewing

For those of you who just need to get out of the house, or those of you who would like to set up a time for your mini retreat with friends......

Anyone can come in and sew at the shop during shop hours.  We just ask that you call and make sure that we do not have an event going on at the time you would like to come.

Get a group together and come have some fun.  It is always fun to use each other's mind to create new projects!
