Because food has been an ongoing issue at Penn National, we’ll be trying out a new space for March: Shepherd’s Spring Retreat Center in Sharpsburg, MD.

Patti visited the center and checked it out. The rooms are hotel style and comfortable, the event space has tons of natural light, and the campus is lovely. It’s right on the Potomac River and there’s lots of outside space to enjoy when you need a break from crafting. The dining space, event space, and sleeping rooms are all on the same level (first floor) in the same building. 

We’ll be staying in Lodge Rooms and crafting in the Gathering Room: Virtual tour:

There are a few changes that will happen using this space:

  • We need to provide liability insurance for the event. (Penn National is the only space I’ve rented that doesn’t ask for insurance.) The cost is about $150 for the weekend and will be split among those attending, so that adds $10-15 to the price per person.
  • I must put down a deposit of at least $750, so that means I need deposits from all of you. I’ll be requiring a depost of $75 to hold your space.
  • The minimum number to hold the retreat is 10 people; the maximum is 16.
  • If we cancel in total, we lose 1/2 our deposit and the remainder can be rolled over to a rescheduled date. Therefore, your deposit will be nonrefundable if it causes us to fall below the 10-person minimum unless you can get someone to take your place.
  • The balance will be due 1 week before the event. We have to pay by check upon arrival, which I’ll do, but that means I need your money ahead of time.
  • You can pay your deposit and balance via check (payable to Patricia Laird and sent to 3057 Sundown Dr, Chambersburg, PA 17202), Venmo (@PattiLaird), or by using PayPal “Send to a friend” option (if you don’t use that option, I get charged fees because I have a business account).
