Registration is now open and will close on August 1st or when we reach the maximum number of registrations, which is 200.  All Registration forms MUST be mailed and no walk-ins will be allowed. The $40 cost to attend the Retreat is used to defray the cost of running the Retreat.

We have added a Hat Fashion Show to the Agenda for the Retreat. Put on your thinking cap (pun intended) and come up with a nice hat which you can design and model yourself or, if you prefer, you can design a hat for somebody else to model, or perhaps you’d like to model a hat somebody else has designed.  The hats can be knit, crocheted or sewn. You can also purchase a hat (straw, felt, cloth) and dress it up to be something deserving of being in a fashion show. Any patterns which are “funky but usable for our recipients will be included in the new pattern book, a copy of which will be given to everyone who registers for the Retreat.

We will be putting together a book of slightly wacky patterns. Please send your wacky patterns to Tricia Ennis for potential inclusion, bearing in mind that we would like these patterns to be ones which, although a bit out of the ordinary, could still be used for our work with From the Heart.

If you want to test a pattern, please let Tricia know that too as she is compiling a list of testers for when that time comes.
