When: October 1-5, 2017
Where: Crossville, TN
What: BYOP Retreat
How Much: $375 per person (Limit 12)
Crossville, TN is located on the Cumberland Plateau in the Appalachian Mountains. We’ll be there at the beginning of October, and the temps should be mild and the leaves beginning to change color. This retreat is literally about getting away- away from the noise and busyness of everyday life and slowing down for a bit of selfish sewing. We will be staying at a 12,700 acre resort that boasts of golf courses, riding stables, indoor and outdoor pools, multiple lakes and other activities including massage services (swoon). There are restaurants on site, and several more to choose from just a couple of miles away. But who cares about all that?!? We are here for the sewing…
BYOP– This is a Bring Your Own Project style of retreat. Plan on starting something new and dedicating a solid several days to working on it. I will be working on the Stag Nation quilt by Sewn Into the Fabric, and I will gladly teach it to whomever wants to join me. Or, bring a project from home that you want to finish up. We’ll have access to one large common sewing area for three days, and there is also plenty of room for cutting, sewing and relaxing in the units where we will be staying. There will be enough room in the common area for all attendes to have their own sewing space. Please do not bring personal irons or cutting mats to the common sewing area, although you are welcome to have them in your unit.

Accomodations– Mulitiple 2-bedroom units with full kitchens, washers and dryers, dining and living room space. Units are located close to one another. No housekeeping will be provided during the retreat.
Food– The Green Apricot will provide lunch and dinner while in the common sewing area Monday through Wednesday. Some staples will be provided in each unit, but all other meals will be the responsibility of the attendees. Grocery stores and restaurants are all just a couple miles away.
Travel– Travel is not included. The closest international airport to Crossville is 110 miles away in Nashville. Please keep this in mind while planning.
Check In/Check Out– Check-in begins at 5pm on Sunday, Oct 1, and check-out is at 10am on Thursday, Oct 5.
