Searsport Rug Hooking
Wool at the Beach! Fall Fling! 9/10-9/13
We invite you to our 2 event since last years cruise! So many things things canceled due to safety... not just at our studio but in all our lives. It is with a hopeful heart and optimistic mind we are planning a second small getaway. If your ready for a small group gathering and feel safe enough to travel, come play on a Florida beach with us! It will be a small group. Our weekend will start Friday evening with a meet and greet with a light dinner with us in the conference room from 6-9. This is also where we will meet the rest of the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday we will meet each morning for breakfast from 8-8:45 and lunch from 12:00-1. Our day runs from 9-3 Then your on your own for dinner. We will gather again each evening from 7-10 for special projects that are included in your weekend. Monday morning we will have breakfast and finish up any last minute things and say goodby at 10.
This will not be structured classes or a work shop. Bring what ever your working on for any help or guidance or you can start a new project. We will have a well stocked camp store to shop from if needed. If there is a certain pattern or wool or something you would like us to bring just let us know!
1. Traveling companion meal plan: When you sign up we ask if it’s just you or will you have a significant other or none fiber friend traveling with you that would like to join us for Friday evening, breakfast and lunch each day. This is only so we have a count for meals. There will not be space for them in the conference room during class time due to our spacing. Only during the meal times.
2. We ask if your a rug hooker, puncher or appliquér so we know the interests and mix of our group that is coming. This will also help us gear the goodie bags for everyone ;)
3. Then we ask if your interested in learning anything else, do you want to see demos or show and tells in other fiber work.
4. All of this will help us with the gift bags and the project we are including for the evening get togethers.
5. You will book your room directly with the hotel, just tell them you are with the Searsport group for the room discount.
6. We will have a date and time for out side shoppers to come shop when the group is not in the conference room. You will need to make an appointment since we will only allow a small group at a time to come in.

****You can cancel two weeks out with a full refund from us and the hotel. You must cancel by 9/01 with both us and the Beachers.
*** We expect this to be more of a local thing for Florida or the drivable southern states like GA and SC. This way if you or us need to cancel, flights will not be involved. We have tried to think of everything.
***BEFORE you write us about masks, social distancing, Covid and group gathering please know that a lot of work and thought have gone into this event. We are adhering to all Covid guidelines and so is the hotel. They are over the top on cleaning and sanitizing all spaces. We have extensively researched, talked to them and another group that has met here. If you do not feel safe joining us, that is fine and we understand. Everyone has to choose what makes them feel safe. At the time of opening registration we are 14 weeks, that’s over 3 months out from holding it. Please do not write us to educate us. If we did not feel confident and safe doing this we would not be doing it. The meeting room holds over 50 people, we are only allowing 21 to attend. Also the pictures of the conference room are their stock photos and not how it will be set up. It will be two people to a table with plenty of space between everyone. We are going with the assumption that in three months the majority will have vaccines and things will be much safer to travel.
Per the Beachers: As for the COVID cleaning, our property is unique in that it is a condo-hotel, so we do have a dedicated housekeeping team with years of experience servicing our guest stays. Daily housekeeping is included, however we provide do not disturb signs should anyone be uncomfortable with daily cleaning. We have always used hospital grade disinfectants, however now they are taking more time to disinfect frequently touched surfaces. We also clean the outside areas - railings, pool furniture, elevator buttons, all the touch points along the way to the guest rooms.
