We have planned this retreat to maximize hands-on, individualized instruction and the schedule will be very flexible.

You may move faster or slower than this sample schedule. This can depend on the complexity of the final design you choose and your familiarity with the sewing techniques required.

There will be opportunities to take optional field trips to some of the beautiful sites in Northern New Mexico. We can take some short (or long) hikes to nearby vistas.

And visit cultural and historical site like El Santuario de Chimayó.

The Santa Fe Opera will be kicking off its summer season this week, and you are welcome to take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy world class opera in a stunning outdoor amphitheater. Tickets can be found here:

A favorite New Mexican pastime is enjoying a soak at one of our natural hot springs or spas. We hope you will join us for an evening of soaking!
