Maryland Kite Makers Retreat (Ellicott, MD)
Time & Date: Feb 12-15, 2016
Turf Valley Resort
2700 Turf Valley Road
Ellicott City, MD US
The MKS retreat format is unique. Kitemakers bring their sewing machines and supplies, and everyone sets up in a large conference room. All presentations are made in the same room so there's no need to carry machines around. There are projects for both the beginning and advanced kitemaker and some for non-kitemaking spouses. The retreat is a wonderful place to see old friends, make new ones, and learn and play!
Our traditional sumptuous banquet (paid for in your registration) and grand auction will be Saturday night. We have room for only 35 participants in the retreat, each with his or her own 8-foot work table . You are registered when your check is received; we're urging you to do that right away to ensure that you have a space.
