Many thanks to each teacher that submitted proposals - they were all amazing and we wish we could have chosen every single one of them! The Class Catalog and Brochure are being prepared and will be posted when it's complete. Registration for the 2018 event will begin late summer and the application will be posted here also. It's going to be an amazing event so save the dates and plan to be there!
3/30/3017: Teacher applications are now available for those who wish to submit to teach at the 2018 weaving retreat. Teachers may submit as many proposals (in separate electronic email submissions) as they choose. Applications are due April 30, 2017. Selected teachers will be notified mid-May, 2017.
Plans are underway for the 2018 Weaving in the Sunshine State basket weaving retreat! Woohoo! The dates and venue have been set. So mark your calendars and plan to join us.
The Dates: January 23 - 25, 2018
A block of rooms have already been held back for us at an amazing $149 (double queen or king room) rate. A link for booking rooms at this rate will be provided once registration is open. The hotel is conveniently located to several restaurants and shops. An airport shuttle from the Ft. Myers airport (RSW) is available.
I'll continue to post details as time progresses. I expect registration to be open late summer.
BASKET WEAVING RETREAT: The inaugural Weaving in the Sunshine State basket weaving retreat was a HUGE success and I can't even begin to thank everyone enough for their support, participation, donations, and attendance. If you weren't there, you missed out on a great time and I hope you'll plan to join us for the 2018 retreat.
