Workshops and more

Spoke with Kathrin this morning and she was telling me that she is going to be working on the writing up the workshops for the Needleworkers Marketplace over the holidays.  This means that soon the workshops will be posted and thinking about what workshops you want to take can begin.

I know I am looking forward to seeing what workshops are being offered so that I can decide which ones I am going to take. 

The Gitta's Gang also wants to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

Answering some questions

Now that the retreat is getting closer I will try to answer some of the questions that we have been hearing from people.

Today's question is:  How do the workshops through the Needleworkers Marketplace work for those attending the retreat.

Workshops being offer through the Needleworkers Marketplace are workshops that anyone can attend. Therefore, even those attending the retreat must sign up for the workshops separately and the cost of these workshops are not part of the retreat price.  These workshops are going to be offered on Saturday and Sunday during the day.  Keep an eye on the Needleworkers Marketplace website as the workshops will be posted there.

For those attending the retreat there is going to be an exclusive workshop held on the Friday night just for us.  This workshop is included in the retreat price and only available to attendees of the retreat.  This means you can attend the other workshops if you wish during the weekend and no miss out on this one.

Now if you think of questions you can always post them in the comment section and we will work on answering all of them.

Early bird draw for Room Upgrade

This is just a reminder that the draw for the 3 room upgrades will take place on January 31st, 2011 for all those registered by that date.

For those of you that have registered or that will be registering for the retreat don't forget to start stitching your name tag (3 x 4 inches) so that you aren't stressed about it just before April 1st.  It is fun to see all the different ideas that people come up with for their name tag. 

I know everyone is asking us stitchers what we want for Christmas so why not whisper to Santa that you would like some Gitta's Gift Certificates to put towards your retreat.

I have heard that the designers are busy with their workshop ideas so hope to have some news about them soon.

Registration number has increased

Today was the Open House at Gitta's and it was fun hearing all the talk about the Gitta's Getaway.

People that attended last year were talking about what the retreat was like and how much they are looking forward to the April 2011 event.  Hopefully more people will sign up now that they heard about all the fun that the group last year had.

The number of people registered for the retreat has increased to 25 so that is good news.  We have reached the half way mark for the number registered so will see how quickly the rest of the spots are filled.

Keep checking back here as well as the NeedleWorkers Marketplace website as they will be more news.
