There is ...

NO agenda

NO deadlines

NO rules

JUST stitching, eating, sleeping, laughing and talking with your friends ... Don’t forget the jigsaw puzzle!

Register today!

The Villa rooms are located in Potier Hall which has hotel style double and single rooms with private handicapped accessible baths. Lounges and small kitchenettes with refrigerator and coffee makers can be found in Potier. We will be stitching and dining separately, a short walk up a gradually inclined sidewalk to the conference center. Most only make the trip twice a day, morning and evening! The grounds are very well maintained, so there is no problem even if we have snow. All meals are included in the registration fee.

Check in begins at 3 PM Friday and we can stitch until 3 PM Monday. Meals are served cafeteria style. There will be coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soda and ice water available each day.

Breakfast is around 8:20 AM

Lunch is at 12:00 NOON

Dinner is served at 5:30 PM.

Things to consider bringing:

A snack to share with the group for the weekend. There is a refrigerator/freezer available.

A wrapped, NEW, stitching related item valued up to $20 for a door prize drawing. You will receive a ticket for every door prize you bring. We will pull the prizes on Sunday.

A finished item or two so that attendees, residents and staff can see what we have accomplished during the past year. Tables to set up a needlework exhibit will be available.

Price options for the weekend:

Sharing a room for 2 nights is $165

Sharing a room for 3 nights is $210

Private room for 2 nights is $200

Private room for 3 nights is $285

Your full payment with registration form is due no later than December 16, 2019. This early date gives Villa Maria enough time to release rooms if attendance is low. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Colleen Brennan or call at 412-613-8717.
