Marin Retreats - Sewing retreats are held in scenic Marin for members to get together and sew for a weekend in a group setting.
For many years the association has offered an In-Town Retreat in February and September. We accommodate 28 people for a three day sewing spree close to home. This makes an easy escape to just pile everything in our cars and drive a few miles across town. If you forget something just make a quick trip to nearby quilt shops or home.
Our venue of choice is the Aloft Hotel in Mountain View (formerly the Hilton Garden Inn), on El Camino Real just a mile east of Freeway 85. The sleeping rooms are luxurious with small refrigerators and very comfortable beds. The hotel has an exercise room and a pool. The food is usually superb. The fees include two nights (Friday and Saturday) and meals from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch, including afternoon snacks. You can share your room with a friend or have a private room. We have the use of the spacious, light filled conference room from Friday mid-morning through Sunday late afternoon. We generally have a masseuse come on Saturday and you can make private appointments.
Each sewist has their own power bar and a "conference" table (18" x 6"). There is enough space to accommodate individual small side tables or Sew-Ezi tables. The hotel provides our sewing rooms with four irons and ironing boards.
Registration for these events fills quickly and is on a first come, first served basis.
Registration is mail-in only, using the sign up form in the newsletter.For the February retreat the registration appears in the previous November newsletter and for the September retreat registration is in the June newsletter. Come and join the fun!
