All of us at Artistic Alchemy (Heidi, Sandra, Mary, & Jane) welcome you to our site. We are finalizing all the details for our 6th Annual Artistic Alchemy Retreat. It will take place September 2nd-6th, 2019, at Zephyr Point Conference Center, which is located on the south shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe, on the Nevada side.
Next Friday, February 1st, revisit this site to see what all of us are offering in our workshops for this year’s retreat. Each of our four workshops promises much creativity, learning, and fun. All this is in a peaceful, blissfully quiet (we are usually the only large group on the entire 128 acre site), exquisitely beautiful Alpine lake view property. We are a small retreat on purpose. Each workshop has a student limit of 10-12. We strive to have the BEST student to teacher ratio. We teachers LOVE what we do and want to give you the BEST experience possible.
Our retreat also offers short evening programs, with a chance to learn more about the teachers, as well as to enjoy the creativity of the students through “show and tell.”
Every evening there is a chance for you to continue stitching/sewing/creating as LATE as you want in your classroom. Also, every evening, after the short program, you can make new friends and/or do some handwork together in the large room (complete with couches, comfy chairs, and a fireplace) in the foyer.
The four of us teachers will have an Artistic Alchemy “store” with many one-of-a-kind items (just for our retreat guests) as well as our own patterns, accessories, fabrics,etc, for sale.Our store is open every day of the retreat (pay up on the last evening). There will also be two visiting “stores” on two different days this year! There will be a scissor sharpening service available. And there will be several days filled with opportunities for massages.
The following Lake Tahoe pictures are to get you excited for the views you will have as you travel on the Eastern shore of the lake to Zephyr Point, the home of the retreat.
Sew, MARK your calendars. Next Friday, February 1st, visit this site and reserve YOUR spot at our 6th annual Artistic Alchemy Retreat. And one last important note: Lakeview rooms are LIMITED! So if a beautiful, Lake Tahoe view outside your sleeping room window is important, sign up sooner than later (we give room assignments according to the postmarked date of deposits).
