Product Description

We hesitated to call this a needlepoint retreat because it is really more than that. It’s an adventure into a different time. A world of beauty.  A world of antiques.  A world of history.  Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur (pronounced “winter-tour”) is the premier museum of American decorative arts, reflecting both early America and the du Pont family’s life here. Its 60-acre naturalistic garden is among the country’s best, and its research library serves scholars from around the world. We invite you to visit and explore this place of beauty, history, and learning. 

The fee for the retreat includes everything you need - except your hotel and travel if you do not live locally.

The retreat includes:
  • see museum pieces not seen by the general public 
  • tours of the museum and gardens
  • lectures by guest textile curators
  • one and a half hour and three hour classes each day
  • food during the day and evenings 
  • merriment and take home goodies
  • take part in one or two classes, depending on what you wish to learn
  • choose your canvas or choose your teacher

  • Our goal is to have you select the canvas that most appeals to you - provide you with the appropriate materials - create a learning environment in which you are an active part
  •  Each class will help with shading - from beginner to more advanced - and discuss various techniques and stitches and why you use them for greater effect

The kit you choose will determine which of the five teachers you will be with.  Each of these teachers are proficient stitchers who can also help you with personal individual attention and add to the kit you select with suggestions for different stitches to use for greater impact if you wish to expand on the basics and learn more than shading. 

You may select from the 13 kits  at any time prior to January 15th, 2018.  The earlier you indicate what you want to work on will be best so that we have a good idea of class sizes - a class may fill up with a particular teacher and we absolutely want everyone to have personalized attention when stitching. If by odd chance you do not find a spectacular kit for the select you are welcome to select any kit from the Winterthur collection on our website.  

Pay in full and take 10% off at checkout with Winterthur in the discount code box.  All deposits and payments in full are non refundable. 

There is also a listing for deposit only.  

There is a page for the kits.  And when you register we will be sending you a schedule, bio of the teachers, full class descriptions to help you sign up for the class  you want.  On this form you can also click to register your kit.
