Policies

In the very unlikely event that the retreat is cancelled due to too few participants, your registration fee will be refunded in full. We cannot compensate you for airfare or other travel costs. However, if the retreat needs to be cancelled it will be done well in advance.

We’d love it if you took and shared photos with your friends and family! However, we do ask you not to videotape any classes.

Use our payment plan to break the registration fee up into 5 manageable chunks. If you choose the payment plan, a 10% service fee is included.
Each month you will be billed on the 1st of the month until paid in full. Failure to complete all installments will result in a refund minus the first months fee. At regular price, the payment plan total is $605 with 5 payments of $121.

I’m afraid tickets are not refundable due to the nature of the event. You may transfer your ticket to someone else,  however. If you’d like to do this, please notify us of any changes.

FAQ's

Kilbuck Creek Lodge consists of 6 large bedrooms, each with 2-6 sturdy, log bunkbeds. Some rooms also have a queen bed. Because it would be a logistical headache, beds will be assigned randomly (one person to a bed- even the queen beds). There are three floors of bedrooms (main level, upstairs, finished walk-out basement), if you are not able to climb stairs please let us know in the registration form so we can assign you to a room on the first floor.

Here is an example of one of the rooms. It consists of two twin bunkbeds, a queen-sized bed and an en suite full bathroom.

No problem! Our caterer is able to accommodate gluten free and vegetarian needs. Please inform us of your dietary needs when filling out the registration form. Note that there is a large kitchen with industrial fridge available for our use. If you’d prefer to bring your own food you are more than welcome to use the kitchen and its appliances.

Absolutely! Kilbuck Creek offers free wi-fi for our use.

Take your pick (or not, you can totally choose them all)! We have a pool, hot tub, one morning of yoga, lovely trails to hike as well as two classes that do not require a sewing machine. Join the photography class to up your game and learn from the best and/or join the HTV (heat transfer vinyl) class to learn about this new trend with the popularity of Silhouette die cutting machines.

I would be happy to answer any questions by email or phone: tami@lovenotions.com or 815-725-5202. If you choose to call please do so during normal business hours of 9AM-5PM CST.

You’re in luck! October in northern Illinois is typically beautiful. The days are usually sunny with highs in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s. The leaves are in their prime fall-changing glory. We suggest wearing layers and bringing a jacket for the evening campfire. Don’t forget your swimsuit for the indoor, heated pool & hot tub!

Kilbuck Creek is just outside of Rockford, IL. If you are flying in, the closest airport is O’Hare International Airport at about an hour away. Midway International Airport is 1.5 hours away. You will need to arrange transportation to the lodge by shuttle or car service. Once you arrive at the lodge you will not need a car. We will be staying on-site throughout the event.

If you are arriving Sunday, you may wish to reserve a hotel in Rockford area for the night. There are several hotels to choose from, many offering a free breakfast. Most are under $100/night.

Absolutely! Just let us know during registration and we’ll do our best to get you roomed together.

Sewing machines will not be provided. Two of the classes are more lecture based so they do not require a machine. If you would like to participate in the sew along or free sewing time, you will need to bring your machine. Every attendee will have their own workstation that will accommodate one machine. You’re welcome to bring your serger and/or coverstitch machine. Additional tables will be available for those bringing more than one. Please note what you will be bringing when you register so we can try to accommodate you.

For our inaugural retreat we thought it would be best to keep it small and casual so we have space for 30 people.

Yay! We can’t wait to get to know you. You will receive a welcome email shortly after registering. A pack list will be sent out in September.

Nope! Included with your registration is accommodation in the lodge for two nights. The lodge consists of several large rooms with sturdy, log bunkbeds. Most rooms have an en suite bathroom. The rooms that do not have an en suite bathroom have easy access to one right outside the room.

You’re welcome to bring your serger and/or coverstitch machine. Each station will accommodate one machine but additional tables will be available for those bringing more than one. Please note what you will be bringing when you register so we can try to accommodate you.

The hall where classes will be held is a large room with high ceilings and plenty of light (natural and electric). Each attendee will have a workstation that will accommodate one machine. There will be ironing and cutting stations throughout the room. Each attendee will be able to leave their machine and supplies at their station. Each table will have one cart assigned to it where you may put notions, fabric and supplies so that your table is clutter-free.

You will receive an emailed pack list in September with exact requirements but count on bringing two yards of knit. You will also have the opportunity to shop the Sly Fox shop in person!

I’m afraid not. This retreat is tailored towards giving you and others a break from everyday life and all the caregiving that entails. Let us take care of you!
