A Day in the Country
Fall is a beautiful time at the Selu retreat center. Join us for two days of sewing, chatting and relaxing with friends-old and new. Bring your current project, UFOs, or start something new, and sew with us for two fun filled days. "Show and Tell" time is also on the agenda, so bring one or two things to share. Cost for our retreat is $175.00 for two days, with $100.00 deposit due at sign up, final payment due by Oct.1. This fee includes lunch and dinner on Saturday, Sunday brunch and a late Sunday afternoon buffet. We are now taking reservations for the limited number of available spaces. Attendance is limited to 15.
The setting for the retreat is the Selu Conservancy - 380 beautiful acres of mountains, woods, trails and the New River. The main gathering room is The Barn, with ample room to set up your camp "studio" and to spread out a quilt as needed. The adjoining open porch at tree-top level is marvelous for meals and snack breaks. Sleeping accommodations are "camp-like," featuring bunk beds. Alternatively, local campers can elect to commute to their homes at night, or others might prefer near-by motels (Comfort Inn, Best Western, and LaQuinta.... 2 to 3 miles from Selu). If you wish to stay at the Selu lodge, the fee is $20.00 plus $5.00 for bedding. Of course you may bring your own bedding. Our workspace in the barn is air-conditioned as are the bunk rooms in the Lodge. Visit the Selu homepage to learn more about the Conservancy.
