Join us on August 2nd and 3rd 10-4 for Needlepoint Nation East Stitch In! Come for one or both days. This is a chance for you to meet stitchers from near and far that you have only known through Facebook. We can accommodate 25 people each day. Bring your stitching or purchase something new. The only fee for the day is $25/day so that we can take care of lunch and snacks for you.
Don’t hesitate in signing up. Email me right away. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been messaged by many people on Facebook already.
In addition, we’ll also be offering private, hour-long Enrichment Sessions for an additional fee of $50/hour. Becki, Aggie and I (your choice) will work with you selecting threads and stitches to enrich and enhance your canvas.
This is more of a get together than a structured retreat. I already have that planned in October. http://astheneedleturns.com/seaside-retreat-sign-ups/
We may throw in a workshop or two. I haven’t decided yet. I’ve got to keep something surprise!
I am busy creating a state of the art classroom that will make The Enriched Stitch the premier needlepoint teaching facility in the North East. I’ll be sure to post pictures when it’s done.
We are located about an hour north of New York City and an hour south of Hartford, CT. The closest airport is White Plains, NY. But, since this is a smaller airport, not as many flights are available. We are about an hour drive from LaGuardia and Kennedy airports and about 1 1/2 hours from Bradley International Airport outside of Hartford.
There is an Amtrak station in Stamford, CT which is about 20 minutes from the shop. You can also hop on a connecting train to Wilton that will drop you 2 minutes from the shop.
As for hotels, the closest places are:
1. Courtyard Marriot (Norwalk – 5 minutes from the shop)
2. Hilton Garden Inn (Norwalk – 5 minutes from the shop)
3. Four Points Sheraton (Norwalk – 5 minutes from the shop)
4. Judy Furie stayed at a microtel in Bethel/Danbury which is about a 1/2 hour north of the shop. I don’t know much about that but she said it was lovely.
There are a lot places to stay. Google is a wonderful thing!
Please contact me with any other questions and to reserve your place. Can’t wait to meet all of you!
