Come hang out with Lisa, Parker, and Daisy in Lisa’s home away from home! Lisa is available to help you with whatever questions you have, whatever techniques you’d like to try and haven’t yet, etc, etc, etc! AND….to have fun! (Parker and Daisy really loooooove to see retreaters, and they really love to get pets and snacks!)
We sew and hang out at 810 Jay St, Manitowoc, WI. Our store is handy for anything you forgot, and we have all the facilities you will need to make your sewing comfortable!
We will offer these to both Day Campers, and Full Retreaters. Included for Day Campers and Full Retreaters: Lunch on Day 2, 3, and 4 and Continental breakfast daily. Both groups will have the option of meeting up for breakfast at Dali’s on the third day. We have lots of time for you to sew on your own projects, with help from us as needed. We will be sewing along with you, but we are there to help you troubleshoot your machines, help you with new techniques, and get stuff done!
Our spacious classroom has PLENTY of room for you to spread out with all your stuff and create to your heart’s content!
We check in at noon on Day 1, Day 2 starts with a continental breakfast, then we head to the large, fully equipped classroom for sewing together all day! We have lunch together, but you all get time to run out on your own to grab dinner at one of the great local restaurants. Day 3, we start with a continental breakfast, then we resume sewing on our projects. Break for lunch together, back to sewing…..or maybe take a walk along the lakeshore! Dinner on your own later that night. Day 4 starts with a continental breakfast, then we resume sewing on our projects till lunch. Lunch together, then we will pack up to begin heading out.
Full retreaters will share a room and a bath with one other person, and will have full access to our 3000 sf luxury condo while not sewing downstairs in our classroom. Elevator access makes it easy to get up and down from the condo, let us know if you need one of the two accessible walk in shower rooms. Day campers will join us upstairs for group lunches.
Come join us……a maximum of 6 people for Full Retreaters-double occupancy, 8 more can Day Camp! We can help you load all your sewing stuff directly into the classroom when you arrive. We are available to help you get your machines out of and into your cars as needed. There is also a large cart that you can load all your stuff onto from your car, and then wheel it upstairs or into the classroom.
There is a refrigerator, microwave, and service items in the classroom, so bring all the beverages and snacks you want for there. There is a fully equipped kitchen at Lisa’s, so plenty of room for your drinks and such there. Coffee pods with cream and sugar are complementary at Lisa’s. We have retreats scheduled throughout the winter, and sometimes weather may be a problem for you. (Probably not a problem in Manitowoc, it tends to melt off rather quickly there!!) If inclement weather prevents you from traveling to the retreat center, then your retreat can simply be moved to another date. Contact us in order to do so! If weather prevents you from leaving to go home on time, you can rest assured that you will be able to stay and sew until it is safe to head back home.
We will add dates frequently…….check back for the newest dates often! Retreat bookings are refundable up until 30 days prior to the retreat. At that point, you will only be refunded if your spot fills.
