April in Alfred 2013 – A Rug Braiding Retreat

Notre Dame Spiritual Center, Alfred, ME

Notre Dame Spiritual Center, Alfred, ME

Create a family heirloom and enjoy the calm surroundings of a former Shaker Village in spring! April in Alfred is a special rug braiding retreat to be held at Notre Dame Spiritual Center from Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 14, 2013.

Join us for our 5th annual quiet, relaxing weekend at a former Shaker Village (which has its own bakery on site). Bring your braiding project to work on or start a new one. Pam Rowan and Bobbi Mahler, our expert rug braiding teachers, will be on hand to help you.  Loretta Zvarick will have wool and rug braiding supplies to sell again this year. Barbara Carlson will be opening the Shaker Museum for us, which is just a short walk down the road. And Pam Rowan will offer a “field trip” to her shop in Berwick, Me.

A fee of $225 Includes: 2 nights lodging, dorm style, 6 delicious home cooked meals starting Friday evening and ending Sunday noon, plus help with your project.

Again, this year we will be in the “Big House” which means that we will have a very large main room to braid in. AND the building has room for up to 50 people.

***Your place is secured by receipt of a $25 non-refundable check***
The remaining $200 is due by March 30th.

Cancellation fee is $25. For more information please call Carol Broadbent at 603-332-9038 or email carolbraids@gmail.com.
