JUNE 21-28, 2019

Laura Taylor invites you to participate in the ultimate blend of needlepoint, majestic scenery and a 4-Diamond resort, The Lodge at Whitefish Lake!

Join us for our return trip to Montana for Stitching and Sightseeing adventures!

Inspired by the grand lodges of the past, with all the conveniences of the present, the Lodge at Whitefish Lake has returned a sense of leisure and grace to the Montana travel experience. Surrounded by mountains with the pristine waters of Whitefish Lake at their back door and all the amenities of a full-service resort, the Lodge provides the perfect location for our stitching retreat in scenic northwest Montana. Guest rooms in two different categories have been blocked at reduced rates for this event. The Lodge will honor these rates for 3 days preceding and following the event to allow you to extend your vacation. Book the room that’s best for you! The Lodge at Whitefish Lake website is www.lodgeatwhitefishlake.com. Check it out! Once you see it you’ll definitely want to meet me in Montana.
