Cambria Inn & Suites, Fargo ND

Need a weekend away with some friends?  Skip the long drive and join us at Cambria Inn & Suites (soon to be DoubleTree) for Modern Textiles' Winter Retreat!  Starting Friday, January 27th at 2pm and going until Sunday, January 29th at 11am, this years retreat is bound to be a sewing filled good time!

Our dream for this retreat is that it's a break from your everyday life.  That it's a chance for you to get away and dive into a project you've been dreaming of, or maybe it's a great opportunity for you to finish up all the projects you never thought you would get done.  Maybe this is your time to try something new and stretch yourself creatively.  Our goal is for you to leave with your creative bucket filled.  Ready to go back to real life with a new focus and a refreshed spirit.  Invite a friend to join you, or come anticipating the new friendships you'll make.  The community of creative makers is a warm and welcoming one.  

We are excited to host our retreat in a hotel setting this year! While it is different than years past, we feel that the experience will be just as valuable. We are happy to have a bright, well-lit space with plenty of room to spread out on your own 6 foot table. The availability of great food (seriously! We have already tasted it!) right at our fingertips is icing on the cake! 

The Cambria has great rooms! Every guest room is a suite. That means for the same price as a regular hotel room, you get 25% or more extra space to work and relax. Each contemporary guest room features comfortable beds with plush pillows, separate sleeping and living areas, well-lit adjustable work desk with ergonomic chair, sofa-sleeper, fridge, microwave, two HDTVs, and high-speed Internet. We have procured a great room rate of $119/night that you can book directly with the hotel.  Get a room all to yourself or find a friend or family member who wants to stay with you. To obtain this special rate be sure to book your room by January 13th by calling 701-551-0120 and asking for the Modern Textiles Retreat rate.

No need to worry about food this weekend - that's our job!  Friday afternoon snacks, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast are all included in the cost of the retreat.  Let us take care of everything!  

Need a sewing machine for the weekend?  We have a limited number of machines available from our classroom that are available for a $10 weekend rental fee.  Please email registration@moderntextiles.net if you will need to reserve a sewing machine.

Retreat fee is $250 which includes plenty of space to spread out and sew, all of your meals, access to our on-site ‘store’, and a special in-store deal the week leading up to the retreat so you can get everything you need for your projects!  Please note that lodging is not included in this fee.
