Sisters Side by Side
Quilt/Craft Retreat on the beach!
Join us for a quilt/craft retreat on the beach from Tuesday, November 12th through Thursday, November 14th.
If you are not a quilter feel free to join us with the hobby/craft/activity of your choice. All creative people are welcome!
We will be at the Perdido Beach Resort at 27200 Perdido Beach Blvd in Orange Beach, Alabama. Go to their website to check out this beautiful resort. www.perdidobeachresort.com Our sewing room is called Sandcastle II and has a beautiful wall of windows which face the Gulf of Mexico.
We can begin sewing/crafting at 8:00 am on Tuesday and sew until 3:00 pm on Thursday. Yep, you can sew all night long!
Meals are not included, but there are refrigerators in the hotel rooms, and the resort has 5 restaurants and 3 bars. We will provide a % off coupon for the resort restaurants. There is a lovely breakfast buffet in one of the restaurants with a choice of full buffet or mini buffet. There are other restaurants close to the resort. Complementary coffee is served in the lobby until 9:00 am, and there will be complementary water in the sewing room.
The hotel rooms are separate from the retreat cost and you must call the resort to reserve your room by October 12, 2019 to get the group rate. Single/double room prices per night are $89.00 for an angle view, $109.00 for a pass view, $134.00 for a pool view, and $169.00 for Gulf Front. We toured the rooms and they are very nice. The angle view room had a good view of the Gulf. The angle view room I saw had 2 queen beds, so if you share with a friend it would be about $50.00 per person per night after taxes. Well worth it! If you have a third or fourth person in the room, the cost is an additional $10.00 per extra person per night. To reserve a room, call 800-634-8001. Tell them that you are booking for the Sisters Side by Side Quilt Retreat Fall 2019 and give them the booking ID number 16903 and you will receive these discounted rates. If you would like to arrive early or stay a day or two later, they will extend the discounted rate to you. Hotel check-in is at 4:00 pm, but you can request early check-in or bring your bags with you to the sewing room until your room is ready.
The resort has indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, complementary valet parking, beach access, and beautiful views. The bellhops have rolling carts and will help you unload your equipment to deliver it to the sewing room, which is right off the lobby, so very easy access.
If you would prefer to attend the retreat and go home in the evening you are welcome to do so. If there are any spots left open after September 30th and you would like to join us for one day the cost will be $55.
Security is on premises 24/7 and we were assured that our sewing room will be secure.
Cost of the retreat is $165.00 but if you pay in full by August 30th you will receive a $15.00 discount bringing the retreat cost to $150.00. A $50.00 deposit is required at time of booking. You can make monthly payments to pay for the retreat, but the full amount must be received by September 30th. We accept cash, check, and credit/debit cards. Call to reserve your spot at 251-943-1127.
We have some great and fun things planned, such as a welcome gift bag for each attendee, fun games and prizes, scheduled show-and-tell. We will have a “buried treasure” table, so start looking through your stuff. You can sell fabric you know you will never use, rulers you no longer need, and any handmade items that you would like to sell. Put your name and the price of the item on each piece. The table will be on the honor system, so anyone who wants an item can locate the seller and pay them for their treasure. Who knows what we might find! We will also have a small shop table with some new items for sale that were purchased especially for the retreat.
I can’t wait to see everyone having fun and remember: What happens at quilt retreat stays at quilt retreat!
