UNWIND 2016 Summer Retreat

Ready for some serious fun in Austin? Join me for the summer edition of my UNWIND Retreat, which will take place in Temple, TX, the weekend of July 8-10, 2016.

July 8th is reserved for my team event. This is a day of pampering and stamping for my team, and anyone who joins my team prior to the retreat is eligible to attend!

July 9th & 10th are my public retreat. This is two full days of classes (4 classes per day), prizes, fellowship and fun.

There will be some supplies you will need for the retreat, and I will publish those in a private retreat group page prior to the event.

There are a limited number of beds available, and those will be first come, first served.

My celebrity chef from the Wimberley retreat will be returning for this event, preparing incredible homemade meals three times a day as well as her award winning desserts. My feelings will not be hurt if you're more excited about her peanut butter cake than you are my classes! You can see beautiful examples of her art cookies, cakes and her mad quilting skills on Instagram. Here are some of the cookies that she put at each place setting last time. Food comas are not uncommon. Please bring stretchy pants.

We have a very generous retreat facility for this event, so we encourage you to bring anything you'd like to work on during the free times.

My retreats are known for being relaxing events where you can learn without ever feeling rushed, and all the hugs are included in the price.

There is a masseuse and a spa room that you can book ahead of time for a massage and I'll share that info in the private group.

Come get messy with us, learn some new techniques, be pampered and relax!

Here's what the spring retreat attendees had to say:

"My retreat experience was wonderful. Great classes with gorgeous projects! Meeting up with friends old and new. A weekend full of creativity and laughter." ~ Jeanne S. 

Lydia's Retreat is da bomb!  We learned a ton of great techniques, made some new friends, and most importantly, laughed liked loons the whole weekend.  It was a blast!" ~Debbi S.

"The Understand Blue UNWIND retreat was an absolute blast! From morning until night, I felt blessed by the camaraderie and laughter of my artsy sisters, delighted by Lydia's innovative and fun-loving teaching style, and pampered by the insanely delicious food from our celebrity chef. If you go, be sure to bring an extra suitcase for all the prizes, giveaways, and crafty creations you will be bringing back home with you - this is one vacation you will never forget!" ~Katherine K. 

If you want to work hard and feel overwhelmed, don't come to Lydia's retreats. I've attended two, and both were filled with warm welcome, laughter, and instant bonding with new friends you'll keep for life. It's more than just stamping. We shared stories, meals, and lots of late night gabbing. There are surprises as each guest shares their knowledge with classmates, too, and amazing products given away. We took fun little side-trips and ate amazing food. It was just a wonderful time-suspending weekend that got my muse all fired up. You just can't put a price on an event like this. Come! ~Kyra S.
