 Joiners Weekend

Are you looking to be a joiner at a fabulous Weekend Getaway at Cattail Retreat? This is a weekend where you bring your own projects to work on, provide a meal with another crafter and get to stay up late to create! You are welcome to attend no matter what you chosen craft is. If you have a friend or 2 to bring with you, that would be great! You would be staying in a private bedroom then. 

  The host is Shirley Merker, a paper crafter for about 20 years and rug hooker of 1 completed project and working on many others! Please contact her with all questions, RVSP and payment details at email: sjsinks@frontier.com, phone call or text to 608-825-9744. 

  The weekends are hosted by Shirley with arrivals on Friday and departing by 3pm on Sunday.


  And the Fine Print: You will be paired with another person to provide a meal (so bring a friend so you can plan something together!). You may be sharing a bedroom with new friends if you attend by yourself. Meal sign up is done after payment is received. Only payment received reserves your spot. So please send your payment promptly after RSVPing. If you can not attend after I have received payment, please let me know asap so we can work together to find someone to take your place. I will only refund your money if your spot is filled. If Shirley cancels the weekend due to not enough paid spots, your money will be refunded in full.


  Looking forward to creating with you at Cattails!
