Join us for a week of creativity. 

In October participants will have the whole week to work on a project they bring with them.

We will gather to share our stories, projects, inspiration around the dinner table and after by the fireplace.

In April, 2022 we'll have two days of instruction.

Berri will teach piecing using Japanese fabrics.

Kimberly will be teaching Sashiko stitching. 

The balance of the time is yours to do with what you want.

Bring a project or develop the newly learned skills with additional "kits" for purchase.


Our residence is a magnificent 500-year-old palazzo in Umbria, Italy.

This ancient home is located right in the village of San Gemini.

Each participant can either have a private room or a shared room with two twin beds. 

We have full use of the house which includes a beautiful

garden around a pool, two living rooms, and a bell tower with a view of the village.

San Gemini is a small community with a town square where the locals gather.

There are wonderful restaurants, hidden churches, winding cobblestone streets

and even a museum or two to explore.

The local coffee shop is the center of the community and the

gelateria is a perfect spot for a quick treat during a break.

Daniella, our personal chef, will prepare amazing five-course dinners. 

There is an option to take a cooking class in the home of

Lorena Autori, a world-known chef located right in San Gemini.

An excursion to Orvieto is included in the agenda for some shopping and
