Glamp Stitchalot is a new take on any sewing retreat you’ve attended in the past. Glamp brings you four fantastic teachers and tons of hands-on instruction. The whole weekend is held at beautiful Sheraton, a luxury hotel in Ann Arbor, Michigan and is hosted by the staff at Pink Castle Fabrics.
Pink Castle first began hosting quilting retreats in 2012 and has run many successful smaller scale Camp Stitchalot events. Our staff heard the demand for a larger luxury retreat and in turn created Glamp Stitchalot. Our first Glamp event took place in November 2015 without a hitch and we look forward to bringing more retreats to the area in the coming months and years.
You will arrive at the Sheraton on Thursday afternoon for check in. That evening, you will join other campers and our fabulous teachers for a welcome mixer with a bite to eat. Thursday’s events will be casual and low-key. We understand it’s a travel day for most people so we’ll just be relaxing and preparing for the fun ahead!
Friday and Saturday will start with breakfast catered by the hotel and then we’ll jump right into classes. Campers will be divided into smaller groups for instruction, and throughout the weekend teachers will rotate from group to group for classes. Each day will include two classes with an afternoon break for lunch.
After classes, you’ll get a short break to go back to your room before dinner. After that, we’ll have plenty of fun evening events planned. We can’t tell you what all those are, because what’s the fun in that?! In addition to dinner and parties, our sewing room will be open as late as you’d like, if you feel like continuing class work or just sewing your own projects.
Sunday morning, you’ll have time to grab a quick and simple breakfast and pack up before checkout. After a couple long days of fun and sewing, we’ll all be ready for a laid back day.
The online community surrounding the world of modern quilting has become so important to us. Our very first Glamp Stitchalot event sold out in just six days just through word of mouth and promotion through social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook. We were lucky to have more than three hundred #glampstitchalot posts on Instagram before the event even took place! That tag, now with over 1,700 posts as of December 2016, is still our favorite way to relive all the fun we had at our first event. Check it out!
