Announcing our 11th getaway retreat in Vermont!

In September we will gather for three days and nights of delightful art-making, friendship and adventure in southern Vermont. Our guest artist this session is Rebecca Sower, returning to us from her Nashville farm and studio. She and I will be leading workshops in painting and stitchwork that capture the colors of autumn in the beautiful mountains of Vermont.

There will be additional side art projects and our traditional adventures, the neighboring villages and Saturday morning tag sales. All of this will take place at Meleen's beautiful side-by-side houses in Arlington, filled with charm, comfort and hospitality.

*Friday, we will enjoy a leisurely breakfast in Meleen's kitchen and great room and then begin work on the featured painting/stitching project. Lunch is served on the porches and in the great room as we continue to create and enjoy each other's company. There is time for independent adventuring or relaxing without an agenda. Dinner is served family style in the great room.

*Saturday is the morning for tag saling! Entirely optional, it is a fun way to explore the charming New England villages and highlights that the area is known for. Covered bridges, farmer's markets and photo opportunities are everywhere. In the afternoon we will visit a farm and spend some time getting to know the area. There will be time to keep creating and working on our creative projects while we enjoy Meleen's picnic lunch at the farm. Afterwards, we will return to the houses for dinner and a farewell evening celebrating new friendships and artistry.
