Join us in Waterville, New Hampshire for a week of sewing, chocolate, laughter, and fun!

Rates include accommodations (five nights lodging at the Valley Inn or Silver Fox Inn); all meals beginning with dinner on Sunday, September 22, and concluding with lunch on Friday, September 27; and workshop with one instructor. 

Both the Silver Fox Inn and The Valley Inn provide a perfect setting for a relaxing week spent creating and exploring new techniques. Our limited class enrollment numbers assure each student receives individual attention. We will do our best to ensure your accommodations are in the same Inn as your workshop selection. The Inns are just steps away from one another.

Workshops begin at 3 p.m. Dinner is served nightly at 6 p.m. Classes continue Monday through Thursday, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m., with a one-hour lunch break each day from noon to 1 p.m. Classrooms are open 24 hours. On Friday, there is a “wrap-up” morning session from 9 to 11 a.m., followed by classroom cleanup and farewell lunch at noon. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 9 a.m. daily. Each evening, members of our faculty may give an informal presentation of their work in their classroom for all attendees.

Workshops, instructors, and published rates will be posted soon.  Check back for more info!
