I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say I live in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Beacon is situated in the Hudson Valley, between the scenic Hudson River and tree-topped mountains. Our downtown is quaint but hip, with galleries, restaurants, and boutiques.
But I want to gauge your interest in this idea! What I'm imagining is a weekend filled with sewing, food, nature--but mostly sewing. Participants could work on their chosen projects, while I do demos on some of my favorite topics like fitting, patternmaking, lapped zippers, steel boning, bound buttonholes, tailoring, etc.
I would arrange it so that room/board and some meals were included in the retreat cost. Travel to Beacon is pretty easy. It's 80 minutes from Grand Central Station in NYC by train, or you can fly into the local airport in Newburgh, NY. The earliest it could happen is in the spring, so there's plenty of time to arrange details.
What do you think? Any interested parties out there?
