Important notes ~ please read: Class size will be limited to allow each participant a little more personal space.
Also note that each participant is expected to be fully vaccinated prior to the retreat.

Live demonstrations will be viewed on a large screen.

The SightSee portion of the retreat will be planned later in the year or early 2022.

In the past, activities have included a visit to a local ranch for a trail ride and bbq dinner with live entertainment, a chance to try some ranch games and get up close and personal with some ranch animals, a tour of Glacier National Park aboard the Historic Red Buses, an evening crafting at a local art studio, Sunset Cruise on Whitefish Lake, a night at the rodeo, and lots of other adventures. I will notify each participant of the activities planned for 2022 including the cost to participate, which is additional to the Stitch and SightSee fee. These activities are optional, so you’ll have the choice whether or not you wish to join the fun.

In 2022, we will host our second annual, just for fun talent show! What’s your hidden talent?? Magic, balloon animals, ballroom dance? What fun we’ll have cheering each other on! Terrific prizes, too!

Most important, we will enjoy another top-notch needlepoint experience and getaway!
