Open stitching the heart of the Canadian Rockies !!!


So far we are 6 stitchers and have decided that if the retreat doesn’t sell out, that we still want the retreat to happen!!! Therefore, I have deleted the mandatory retreat cancellation fee that the lodge would have charged us (please note if you join and need to cancel, the participant cancellation policy is still in effect).

Also, please note that the prices are all inclusive for your room, and that ALL MEALS are also included (12 of them !). Even though we are a captive audience, the lodge provides high quality food for their guests …! If you have dietary restrictions, the lodge is happy to accommodate them!

Single occupancy is available and please deduct CAD 300.00 from the price.

I am also accepting USA currency via paypal for USA residents ! I will do the exchange rate calculation at the time you would like to book !


This beautiful lodge is located in Kananaskis Country in Alberta (which does not require the purchase of a park pass), and is 2 hours away from Calgary, 1 hour away from the town of Banff, and 35 minutes away from the town of Canmore. The lodges website is “

FYI – Spouses are welcomed, however as mentioned above the lodge is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and is not located in a town.

There’s a lot to say, so it’s a long read !!! PLEASE read all as there is important info about the weather, lodge location, and non-refundable payments & cancellations policies.

– VERY IMPORTANT – If we don’t sell out the retreat, then we will need to put our stitching away during the afternoon tea sittings as the lodge will be opened to the public for afternoon tea. Since it is mid-week, it is most probable that they don’t get a lot of outside people coming for tea.

The website for the lodge is “” – please check out the rooms and trip advisor reviews.

I am excited about this event, and can’t wait for you to see this area of the Canadian Rockies !!
