Nicki Franklin Retreat September 2024

*We are sold out of all available spots for the Nicki Franklin retreat, however, please leave your email if you'd like to be notified if any places become available due to cancellations. Thank you so much :)

*We are thrilled to announce a very special retreat with Nicki Franklin of The Stitchery

Founder of The Stitchery, Nicki comes to us from North Hamptonshire in England. She joins us for two 3 day retreats where we will complete an exclusive embroidery kit from The Stitchery and bonus projects designed just for our attendees. Prepare to be thoroughly spoiled and pampered!

Join us in Okotoks, Canada for one of our two, 3 day events during the September of 2024. The first retreat is September 6-8 and second is Sept 13-15. Our retreat space is on our acreage property, 2 minutes outside of the town. It is a 2200sq.ft., farm style building, that is lovingly decorated and filled with beautiful products. The following is a very preliminary schedule, and may change slightly as Nicki and I continue to prepare a wonderful weekend retreat for you all:

Friday and Saturday 10 am-4 pm: Full instruction on an exclusive kit from The Stitchery (this is a surprise kit, and not the one in the picture on this listing). Bonus (and surprise!) projects will also be provided, all created with the Stitchery aesthetic in mind, and exclusive to our retreat attendees. Snacks, beverages and a lunch will be catered. Special dietary restrictions can be accommodated. There will be an opportunity for studio shopping with special discounts, and a full stock of Stitchery kits, plus many other goodies!

Sunday 10 am-1pm:half day of finishing projects, collecting your goodies, goodbyes. Retreat ends at 1 pm.

*Okotoks is located in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and is a beautiful small historic town, 20 minutes from the city of Calgary. The international airport is a 40-50 minute drive away. We will be providing a written guide for you, including listing my favourite restaurants, shops and destinations. I highly recommend extending your stay and visiting Banff, a bucket list destination for people around the world (I have included several photos of Banff for you to see, though photos don’t do it justice). Banff is a 2 hour drive from my home, into the Rocky Mountains. It is not to be missed!

*There are several local hotels, minutes from the retreat site. There is every amenity in our town, including many chain shops and restaurants, but also (and I believe more importantly) wonderful small, locally owned businesses.

*I would recommend renting a vehicle at the airport so you can not only get to Okotoks, but also drive daily to the retreat location. Transportation is not provided.

*A full itinerary and list of hotels and other details will be provided to you in April.

*Nicki and I are so excited and hope to see you in person very soon!

PLEASE NOTE: Reservations are NON-REFUNDABLE for any reason. However, if you're no longer able to attend, you may find another attendee to take your place.

Date: Sept 6-8
