Retreat Update

A quick update on our retreat and spa scheduled for November 3-5, 2006: all single occupancy rooms are sold out; we still have double-occupancy rooms available as well as 'sleep-over' and daytime slots. The deadline to reserve is soon: September 15th, one week from today.

Here are some pictures of the lovely house at which we will be spending the weekend in early November...

I've arranged to have Sheila Sparapani from Butterfly Skin Studio provide a "Knitter's Spa" on Saturday afternoon. Sheila will offer a complementary class on handcare for the knitter (demonstrating and practicing hand exercises, giving out free samples of hand creams, etc). Additionally she will offer individual 15-minute nourishing hand treatments for a $15 charge which will include hydration, stretching, a parafin wax treatment, and an accupressure/massage. Attendees will be able to sign up for the individual treatments on Saturday morning.

Look here for detailed information about the retreat, including pricing.
