Material Obsession Retreat Dates

We promised more details, and here they are. The very first MO retreat in beautiful Morpeth, NSW, about an hour and a half north of Sydney. The dates are as follows, you can choose which set of days you want to come;

Fri 22nd, 23rd, 24th Sept - booked out! Sorry....
Mon 25th, 26th, 27th Sept - 4 places left
Wed 27th, 28th, 29th Sept - 6 places left
Fri 29th, 3oth, Oct 1 - 4 places left

The accomodation is at our friend Carolyn's house, just outside of Morpeth. The house has four bedrooms, one of which sleeps three. If you are coming with friends and don't mind sharing, (seperate beds of course!) you will get a discount on your room rate. People sharing a room will determine how many people are in each three day slot, obviously if no one wants to share there will be four students, six if there are carers and sharers.
Two and a half days in a single room is $350 ($320 in a shared room), this includes dinner on Day 1, all meals Day 2 and breakfast on Day 3, your accomodation and me and Kathy! (The latter obviously being the most valuable! :) )We are planning some fun demos and games, a big dinner and lots of great company! Basically the retreat will involve lots of your own sewing, we are there to guide you and several of the girls who have booked already are doing MO kits they want help with, so that we are there as they go along. If you like that idea you can email or call the shop and we can discuss what you might like to do, colours etc and we can bring your fabric cut and ready to go.
We'd love to have you, so get in fast if you want to come. There is a $150 non-refundable deposit to book, you can call or email your credit card or pay by cheque. Looking forward to meeting some of our online friends!
