We're hosting a weekend getaway with fellow costumers! We hope you'll join us October 8th - 10th at the Creative Cottage in McKinney for some long-awaited socializing, relaxing, and learning. Our schedule is still being finalized, but it will include a wide range of sewing and costuming activities, fitting assistance, a dress dummy workshop, and a formal costumed dinner.

There is a limited amount of space at this retreat, so make sure to purchase your ticket early to ensure your spot! DFWCG members can get a discounted rate here. Not a member? Join here!

Room and board are included in the price of your ticket. Please note: some beds are upstairs, and bedrooms will need to be shared (multiple beds to a room.) Meals will be professionally catered, and the schedule is as follows:

Friday - dinner at 6:45pm

Saturday - breakfast of sweet breads and fruit available for early risers

Saturday - brunch at 11:00am

Saturday - dinner at 6:00pm

Sunday - brunch at 10:00am

There will be a coffee maker, an ice maker, a refrigerator, and a microwave available as well if you prefer to bring your own food and drinks.

The hands-on portion of our event will take place in a large activity space that includes your own personal 5' table, ample electrical outlets, extra counter space, and an iron.

There is also a cozy living room with a TV.

Covid numbers here in North Texas are at an all-time high right now. We've been monitoring the situation in relation to our upcoming events, and have decided to cancel our upcoming outing to see Queen Nefertari's Egypt at the Kimbell Art Museum. As much as we were looking forward to resuming regular events this year, the health and safety of our members and guests must always come first. We are still considering whether or not to go ahead with the Arsenic & Lace Green Tea in March, or whether to postpone it to a later date. We will keep everyone updated on further developments. We hope all our subscribers are doing well, and continue to remain in good health! Stay safe!

We've been paying close attention to the Covid numbers here in Texas, and have come to the decision to cancel our upcoming event - The Calico Picnic. We are continuing to monitor the local situation and have yet to make a decision concerning the Georgian Picnic in November. We will let everyone know if we decide to cancel that event in the future.

We are still hoping to resume regular events in 2021, and will keep everyone updated on the status of those events as the situation unfolds.

We hope all our subscribers are doing well, and continue to remain in good health! Stay safe!
