Swap Inchies

Make inchies (1″x1″ squares of polymer clay art) to bring to the retreat and swap with your retreat comrades! Making inchies is not required, but it’s a great way to collect souvenirs of the retreat and make new friends. Make as few or as many as you wish to trade.

Get Goodies

Our goody bags are full of free supplies and samples, generously donated by some of our favorite companies. We’ll be giving away several door prizes every day. Plus we’re holding an Auction Saturday after lunch, where larger prizes will be up for grabs. Take a look at these great sponsors:

Past Retreats

One attendee summed up her experience at our retreat this way:

“All 3 days were great, well organized, kept on time, good vendor presentation etc., etc. etc. I could go on beyond e-mail ability. In other words we had a GREAT time and will remember it all year.” — Julie H.
