Urban Craft Center Overnight Retreats
Times are much busier today, so at the Urban Craft Center, you can focus on just what you want by offering overnight accommodations….think of how much you can get done! Away from chores and responsibilities, making new friends and new crafts or I’ve even been known to saddle up my taxes to bring to a retreat! We can’t help you with your taxes, but we will be offering classes on just about any craft you can think of….sewing, quilting, cooking, crafting, scrapbooking, re-purposing, glass projects, Pinterest projects, wreaths, mixed media, board signs, soap making and so much more! And for the not so crafty, we will offer fly fishing/fly tying, blacksmithing, hiking, photography, and junking! We are right in the middle of about a dozen antique/junk stores! You dream it, we will figure out how to Craft it at the Urb! So, bring your own group or sign up for one of my themed retreats listed on my calendar.
Let me tell you details about the retreat!
It’s a 1940’s home in the Historical District of Huntsville that has been converted to host overnight groups of up to 10 people. Each person has their own bed and work station. There are 3 bedrooms with 4 beds each, all bedding and towels are included, 2 full baths, patio, loading ramp, fully equipped kitchen, TV, internet, and tons of inspiration. For the quilters and sewists, we have an ironing station and a cutting station. For the scrapbookers, we have a Cricut station, dozens of cartridges, and hundreds of stamps. There is plenty of light and each person gets use of a padded rolling office chair. We have a ‘store’ for those forgotten items like tape or thread and some fun items like buttons, ribbon, fat quarters, scrapbook kits and embellishments.
For an additional cost, we can make arrangements to prepare your food, snacks, or provide pick-up/delivery. However, coffee, tea, bottled water and ice are provided. We also have a restaurant map posted. Our cook has a degree in Culinary Arts and would be happy to prepare any of your meals during your stay.
For a girl’s weekend, we have mapped out the best restaurants and shops. There is even a dance hall and a gun range if you want to experience the wild side. Huntsville has several interesting museums — The Sam Houston Memorial Museum, The H.E.A.R.T.S. Veteran Museum, and the Prison Museum. There is also a Cemetery tour and several historical home tours that are open on the weekend and last…the famous Sam Houston Statue and gift shop.
Gather your friends and enjoy a creative weekend quilting, scrapbooking, crafting or antiquing…..whatever your passion. Take a creative Journey and bring a bunch of friends with you! Look at the calendar for scheduled retreats and available dates to reserve for your personal retreat group.
