2018 Italy Fashion and Food Retreat

We are combining Fashion and Food for our 2018 Italy retreat.

The dates will be from June 14th 2018 (arrival day with dinner in evening), through the morning June 23rd. It will be a great mixture of fashion, food and creativity.

As many of you know, Susan has been going to Verona Italy for the past 12
years, and has established a wonderful network of friends and businesses
related to fashion and food.
How would you like…

To learn how to make pasta from Nonna, the grandmother of the family who
owns a knitting mill we visit?

Travel to Milan to walk the Fashion District and each lunch at the Armani
Café?

Take a cooking class from the owner of a restaurant in the Lugana wine
region, and then after eating the lunch on his outdoor patio, learn create a
felted scarf under the guidance of a world-renown felter?

Visit a weaving establishment in Venice, where they still weave on
traditional Jacquard looms and you can watch the boats go by on the Grand
Canal.

Visit local fabric and yarn stores, and meet local Artisans.

Sit on Roman stones in an arena, from 4th century AD, as you watch the
world-famous opera production of Carmen.

This, and so much more… in our 2018 Food and Fashion Retreat in Italy.

The maximum group size will be seven people, so reserve your spot soon. A deposit of $500 is required to hold your place.

We hold a group of apartments in a Medieval building, in the center core
of Verona, and we must release those not needed by the end of this week.
Although we can still take participants after this week, housing will become
scattered around the city after we release the apartments, so if you are
interested and want the convenience of staying with the group in a central
location, please contact us by Friday, March 2nd, 2018. After that time, we will assist with
housing the best we can, using hotels and bed and breakfasts, or you can
secure your own space.
