2018 – Yo Ho Ho, Stitch and Sew!

Yo Ho Ho – Stitch and Sew
RETREAT at Safety Harbor!


Dates: Friday, May 4, 2018, 2PM, through
Sunday May 6, 2018, 4PM, 2018

Where: Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, Safety Harbor, FL

UPDATE: 2-4-2018: We have 62 confirmed registrations for our event! Yay! But — and this is important — our meeting space maxes out at 70 registrations. We have room for only eight more registrations. If you’re the 70th person to register, all’s well; but if you’re the 71st, your name will go on a waiting list. 


UPDATE: 1-9-2018: We have filled our room block and the hotel has notified us that the only rooms available for our weekend have king-size beds.


That doesn’t mean you can’t come to Yo Ho Ho, Stitch and Sew because we’ve still got plenty of room for embroiderers and pirates alike because…

The committee has decided to waive the commuter fee.

Safety Harbor is a compact resort town with many nearby hotels – Google safety harbor hotels for details and prices…
…then fill out your registration form and join us for a great weekend!

Our hotel is an architectural delight with walking trails and the historic Espiritu Santo Springs–Florida’s only hot spring. There are dozens of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The accommodations are big and bright. Don’t miss out on the fun and games. There will be pirates, a treasure hunt, and (maybe) someone will walk the plank!
