Good evening, Everyone!

This is Heidi Rugg. I am looking forward to our weekend of feltmaking at The Clearing! Are you ready to luxuriate in a weekend of making? This email will go over some details and help me (and you) to be fully prepared. Please complete this form as soon as possible. All project materials will be provided, but there are some other things that you will need to bring. Read on!

The Clearing is a semi-rustic retreat center in Amelia Courthouse. The lodge is fully conditioned with big windows, high ceilings, an extra large kitchen, and lots of space. Please note that there is (gasp!) no wi-fi at The Clearing. Most mobile phone carriers have some reception, but it may not be strong. The address to plug into your GPS is 14006 Genito Road, Amelia Courthouse, VA 23002. If you get lost or need assistance with directions, it would be best to reach out to Sam Rugg (Heidi's husband) at 804-539-6552. 

Participants who are staying for the weekend will need to bring camping gear (tents, sleeping gear, etc...) OR pillow/bedding if staying in the sleeping cabin. Full details on how to prep/what to bring can be found here.

But wait, there's more! Keep on scrolling for the proposed menu. And if you want to review the schedule for the weekend, you can find it here. Questions? Reach out!

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
