Camp Garner's Creek Retreat
details

Retreat Registration is open! Here are a few details to help you get prepared for an awesome weekend at Pinewood Lodge.
Registration details are as follows. The cost of the retreat is $220 for 3 nights, and includes one meal. To insure a spot, a deposit of $55.00 is required at time of sign up.  The balance of $165 may be paid in 3 equal installments of $55, and must be paid and is non-refundable after September 1st.  Granny B Retreat T-Shirts are available for $25 and need to be ordered at the time of deposit; they must be paid for by September 1st.  Please let us know what size you'd like so we'll be sure to have it.  If you have a roommate in mind, just let us know at the time of registration.  If you cannot do stairs, or need handicap access, please also let us know at time of registration so we may assign rooms accordingly.  Now on to the fun parts!

*We will be preparing nonstop before you arrive on Friday. Check-in to rooms @ 3pm and check-out of rooms @ 12pm Sunday. If you arrive earlier than 3pm we will be able to let you in after 2pm. This schedule is according to the policies and guidelines of Camp Garner Creek. We ask that you respect this as we will not be able to let you into the quilting room until 2pm. At 2pm you may set up your area and even get started, as room check-in is not until 3pm. 
*The Granny B's Fall Retreat sale begins Thursday, September 27, 2pm, and continues through Saturday, September 29th. 
*Bring whatever you want to sew. We like to bring no brainers, kits, or UFO's so we are not doing serious cutting or piecing amidst lots of busy. Talking and laughing is a super part of retreat time as well as girl time, yet it can be distracting. 
*There is a kitchenette with refrigerator, ice maker, coffee maker, and toaster oven. Bring breakfast, lunch and snack items. Many retreaters share so there are lots of choices. Any items reserved for you need to be clearly labeled.
*Granny B's supplies water and coffee. We will have the  Keurig coffee machines. If you would like to use these, you need to bring your own K cups. If you would like other soft drinks, juices, or coffee accompaniments, please be sure to pack what you prefer.
*Doesn't everyone love a door prize? If you have sewing items, stash items, etc. our tradition is to bring items and then we have a great prize selection!!!
*We will have one meal at the camp to be determined.
*Retreat center rooms have towels, sheets, and soap. There are no accoutrements like shampoo, hairdryers, phones or TVs. There are two full beds in each room. Rooms will be assigned at retreat check in. 
*At check out on Sunday clean and vacuum your sewing area. Strip your bed and put all linens in a pillowcase including towels and washcloths; set the soiled linen bag outside the door of your room. Place your room key back on the correct hook on the room key board in the quilting room.
*Most importantly, bring no lists or chores. Be prepared for lots of relaxation and sewing. And be sure to pack that smile!
