Retreat - From the Heart Stitchers
2015 Retreat - Saturday August 29 - "Colors of the World"
10am until 3:30pm
Registration for the Retreat will open on April 1st and close on July 15th. I really, really encourage you to register early this year as we break our records on the number of attendees every year and are now in a position where we need to start keeping a very close eye of how many we can fit in to our current location.
As we had a total of 30 walk-ins last year, we are actively considering a "NO walk-in" policy and this would be another reason to register early - just to be sure you have done so. The problem with allowing walk-ins when our numbers get to where they are now is that they really put stress on the ability to provide good service to everyone there. For example, the normal course of events is for a venue to allow +/- 10% on the food but when the walk-in numbers are closer to 20% (as they were last year), the food is in jeopardy of running out. There is also the issue of not having sufficient seating to mention another concern.
So, we really urge you to register early so we can control the spacing and food concerns. Our primary focus of the Retreat is that you, the volunteer,have a great day and leave with good memories.
Thank you all very much for your understanding of my concern about this.
