ASG NoVA Taste of Retreat 2015

What do you get when you put 33 friends together for 3 days of sewing and laughter inside 6000 square feet of work space??  We call it the American Sewing Guild Northern Virginia Chapter's Taste of Retreat!!  Yes, it was as fun as it sounds.


I have organized these summer retreats for our chapter before (2012 and in 2014), so I was happy to do it again this year.  One problem to start though -  I had to find a new venue within our budget for our 3-day retreat.  The hotel we used previously increased their fees 50% which put it out of our budget.  I was so excited to be able to secure The National Conference Center in Leesburg, VA for our retreat this summer!  This place is a corporate training facility and can host any size event. We were given almost 6,000 square feet for our event!!  ðŸ˜ƒ  The food on campus is excellent and the staff was friendly, helpful and quickly took care of any needs that came up.  The overnight rooms are pretty basic as this site is used primarily for corporate training.

Where is everyone?  Lunch break at the retreat.

An enjoyable weekend spending time doing the craft love with like-minded friends.  We will be back at this venue next year.  They have offered us even more space, so we may open up this retreat to our neighboring ASG chapters to join us.

Happy Stitching!
