MakerCraft Studio: We are open for Retreat Reservations!

Published 11 days ago • 2 min read

Dear friends,

We are finally ready to accept reservations for retreats hosted by Patti and Cass at the new space.

These will be 4-day retreats at which you can work on your own projects.

The dates are:

  • July 25-28, 2024
  • Aug 30-Sept 2, 2024 (Labor Day weekend)
  • Sept 26-29, 2024
  • Oct 24-27, 2024

The cost is $350/weekend and that includes meals. You’ll need to pay a $100 deposit when you book; the balance is due 30 days before the retreat.

Weekends start at 9 AM on the first day and run until 5 PM the last day. The meals included are lunch on the first day through lunch on the last day. There is an option to exclude meals. There are two kitchens at the space, and if you choose to cook your own meals, you’ll have to do so in the upstairs kitchen. There is a discount of $50 for this option. Use code MEALS at checkout.

Once a room is booked, it won’t be available anymore, so don’t delay if you want to sign up!

We have gotten the building permit! This is a BIG step, and our electrician is already hard at work. Here he is installing lots of floor outlets. Rob and Joe have been working on the porch. They repaired water damage, raised up the whole porch to fix its sagging (we have new period columns to replace the old 4 x 4's), painted new floor boards, and replaced the old roof with a lovely green metal roof.
