We're coming up on our third Glamp Stitchalot in less than two months!
It will be held at the Kensington Hotel in Ann Arbor, Michigan November 10th through 13th, 2016.

Glamp Stitchalot is run by Pink Castle Fabrics. With the purchase of a ticket, you will receive instructions from six well-known teachers, all meals for the entire weekend, and lasting friendships with new like-minded ladies and gentlemen.

In the past, our Glampers have had amazing experiences. As a company, we strive to make each Glamp even more successful than the last. Here are a few highlights from our past two Glamp Stitchalot Events:

Welcome Mixer
Thursday night, we like to have a mixer for all of our Glampers to meet each other. We supply a buffet-style dinner after you check in and pick up your orders and goody bags.
You have the opportunity to check in to the hotel, if you've decided to stay at the Kensington with us, set up your sewing machine if you've brought your own, and find your swap partner if you've partaken in the Swap! You have the freedom to roam about Ann Arbor throughout the afternoon and stop into the Pink Castle Fabrics shop to pick up anything you've forgotten.

Six Classes
Each class will be taught by a professional quilter. We have six amazing teachers coming for November 2016: Latifah Saafir, Daniel Rouse, Sherri Lynn Wood, Nydia Kehnle, Luke Haynes, and Nicholas Ball! You can read more about each teacher at www.stitchalot.com.

 

Each class period will last two hours a piece. You'll be taught a different technique by each teacher.

Open Sewing Time
Want to practice your new improvisational skills? Well, you get a lot of open sewing time throughout the weekend! We keep the sewing room open until Midnight both Friday and Saturday so you and sew to your heart's desire. We know to many of you that a sewing retreat means that you finally have time to get some sewing done, so we want to give you as much time to just relax and sew as you want and need!

A Pop-Up Shop
Forget something or find you need just a little bit more fabric for one of your projects? We're here to help! You can find some of Pink Castle's Finest working in the pop-up shop along with Pink Castle's Resident Janome Sale's Girl, Molly, hanging out to help you with any questions about the Janome Sewing Machines we sell.
We will have shelf cuts, bundles, and notions galore for your purchasing pleasures!

Massage Therapy
Yes, you read that right! We bring in a certified massage therapist (sometimes two!) for those that need a little bit of R&R after sewing for many hours! The cost is $1/minute, and it's first-come-first-serve, so no need to schedule an appointment. Just drop in on the massage therapist whenever you need to and they'll take care of you!

Giveaways
Throughout the weekend, we hold giveaways! A lot of them, too! I'm not going to spoil any surprises for our November Event, but look at June's awesome table of goodies:
