5Sassy Jacks Stitchery’s
With The Primitive Hare
We are so happy to welcome Isobel Argante, the creative force behind the wonderful designs of The Primitive Hare to Sassy Jacks Stitchery for Halloween 2019!! What a fabulous privilege to offer you this wonderful retreat with Isobel. Having joined her retreat this past year at Sturbridge and Salem, Massachusetts, I assure you, you will have a wonderfully witchy time with us in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, in the deep beauty of fall at its finest hour. This is a retreat NOT TO BE MISSED. We are limited to 30 participants, so I encourage you sign up early.
On Friday October 25th, 2019, Sassy Jacks Stitchery will welcome you to our shop for an open house and special treats anytime from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, at your leisure. We’ll close our shop for a few hours and transform into a fabulous classroom space and Halloween Wonderland, and welcome you back at 7:00 pm for the beginning of a fabulous weekend with Isobel. We’ll have a small project from Isobel for Friday night and some cool prizes for your best Witchy Hat!! Just the hat on Friday… save your full witchy regalia for Saturday night!
We’ll also have a fun Halloween small exchange on Friday night for anyone who would like to participate. If you would like to join the Halloween small exchange, you will stitch and finish a small needlework accessory, like a pin cushion, or a needle book, or a scissor fob, using pattern and supplies from your stash, and bring it wrapped to the Friday evening class. Surrender it to me as you check in, and I will give you a special “Sassy” gift! We’ll do a blind (wrapped) exchange later in the evening using a fair method of my choosing. Insert a card with your small with your name and email address. Your witchy stitching sister will want to thank you for your gift!
On Saturday morning our doors will open at 9:00 am for shopping and visiting. Class will begin at 9:30 am and Isobel will present your main project for the retreat. We’ll break at Noon for lunch on your own at a nearby café and rejoin at 1:00 for class, continuing until 4:00 pm. We’ll break for dinner and a quick costume change… yes… here is where you need to don your witchy robes!! Rejoin us at 7:00 pm for Fabulous Halloween Festivities!! You bring the stitching and we’ll supply the treats! No tricks… well… only if you’re bad!
We come together again on Sunday at 9:30 (Doors open at 9:00 am) for stitching and finishing instructions. We’ll break around 1:00 pm so that you have the afternoon free to enjoy the surrounding area. Asheville is gorgeous this time of year!
Cost of the retreat is $250 with a non-refundable deposit of $75 required at registration.
