Registration is now open for our annual member retreat

October 13th – 15th, 2017

We are back at Club Med in Port St Lucie, the site of last year’s retreat. It’s an all inclusive resort so the fee includes everything – food, drink, room, and great classes with fellow members.

Double-occupancy rooms are just $350.00, singles are only $420.00. You are welcome to bring a guest, arrive a few days early, or stay a few days late. Its a lovely vacation spot, just 2 hours from Miami.

Over the next few weeks, we will be posting the projects and teachers, plus the group project for Friday afternoon. As with last year, we are welcome at the resort for lunch on Friday (rooms are usually available between 2pm-3pm), and can remain on-site after lunch on Sunday.

What is the annual retreat?

Each year, guild members volunteer to “teach-it-forward,” sharing our knowledge in a variety of jewelry-making disciplines with each other. In past years, topics have included beadweaving, kumihimo, metalwork, tassel making, polymer clay, wirework, resin, enameling, and much, much more. All the classes are free. All you pay for are the accommodations – which are all inclusive! Its a really good deal!

Payment is split into two equal amounts. If you are registering for Single, $210 is due with your initial registration. If you are registering for a double, the deposit is $175.00. If you are bringing a guest, the rate for the guest for the 3 days is the same (since classes are free); the deposit is $350.00. The second payment will be invoiced on August 1st, 2017.

If you would like to stay longer than the retreat (before or after), the additional days must be booked through SFJAG. Please note in the from arrival/departure dates and we will request pricing and availability for the room.

Cancellation Policy: You can cancel up to July 12th, and received a full refund, less a $25.00 processing fee. If you cancel after July 12th, but before August 25th, your deposit is forfeit. There are no refunds or cancellations after August 25th, but you can transfer your reservation to another party.
