This event is initially open to members of SAQA only. To keep this intimate, the retreat will be limited to the first 25 who register, so sign up early.

SAQA Members have the added bonus of a $75.00 discount from their registration and Early Registration drops the price to only $650.00. Early Registration ends on 6/30/15.

So, come, enjoy the beauty of South Maui, and indulge in the pleasure of immersing yourself in a week with your (soon to be) best friends as you play with fabric and learn or perfect a variety of dyeing and surface design techniques. There will be good food, good laughter and lots of creativity! We hope to have you join our ohana – Mahalo!
