The bulk of your week will be spent creating/sewing, getting to know yourself better, and finding time to relax. Extra-curricular activities are presented depending on time of year and weather. A musical evening with Ricky is standard.
The first group event is a pre-dinner gathering with hors d’oeuvres and wine at 5:30pm on arrival day. Dinner is served at 6:00pm. This is not a formal dinner, but casual dress is appreciated.
The closing dinner on the last evening is not formal. It is a great evening where each of us can recount our week and share what we learned.
Breakfast each day is on your own. Check with your innkeeper for their breakfast offerings.
Each day will begin with a Morning Talk by Ricky. Students will be able to find journaling time as well as plenty of sewing time. The classroom is available 24 hours a day during the retreat. Ricky is with the class from 8:30am until 4:30pm each day.
Lunches and dinners are provided each day at noon and 6pm.
Ricky will be assisting individuals one-on-one and he also be providing demonstrations as needed by the group. These are not scheduled demos. He will alert everyone to the times these will take place. Other than that, you are free to sew, schedule a massage, shop, rest, etc.
Ricky will also announce when there is an evening activity.
Your days will be full and unexpected events happen at each retreat.
The candlelight closing dinner on Saturday evening is nice, but not formal. It is a great evening where each of us can reflect on the week and share the lessons we learned.
