Are you interested in spending a week immersed in tapestry in a beautiful environment with like-minded people? These are the retreats I have scheduled.

Once again, a spectacular week in every way. Even the weather!! Advice to all — if you get a chance to attend one of Rebecca’s retreats, do it! Just save one space for me. Thank you, Rebecca, for another unforgettable week.

The retreat was such a special amazing time. I go back and look at my photos and the yarn... and my sketchbook .. Trying to keep that warm creative colorful space inside me.
— Ercil Howard-Wroth after the 2019 Taos retreat (which was her third retreat!)
Thank you Rebecca for a wonderful and inspiring experience. Thanks also to my co-participants—you are the best and I hope our paths cross again. This workshop was terrific and really reignited my desire to weave. My workplace and virtually all of Chicago has been closed since I returned home (cited as one of the coldest places on the planet last night), so I have had plenty of time to keep weaving.

Thank YOU for a delightful retreat experience. The setting was perfect, the food delicious, and even the massage was top notch.

The best part was learning from you and the other participants. You really have found your calling. You are a gifted teacher, always positive, always constructive, always patient (at least on the outside). In another life I want to be your apprentice.

I look forward to future opportunities.
— Ginny Wallace after the Vermont 2019 retreat
the retreat was wonderful. it’s a very nice location, fantastic food, a fun group, and to top it off, there was you. i like the idea that good commons is out-of-the-way. much easier to concentrate on what i’m learning. and who wouldn’t want to stick around for the next meal or snack! olga is a keeper as far as i’m concerned. don’t have anything to compare her massage with but i’m sold!

that leaves you.....you are an accomplished instructor. you carefully consider each student’s abilities and guide them along. you are approachable, encouraging, and enthusiastic. who couldn’t learn in that environment?
— Ramona Machulak after the 2019 Vermont retreat
I felt so validated in my design skills. With more skill learned from you, I trust my decision making enough that when I’m alone in my studio I will be able to design to my liking, with a lot of hard work! . . .

A wonderful workshop full of creativity, ideas, learning. You are a generous teacher, not holding back. It was an absolute pleasure being in your workshop.
— Cathie Beckman, Vermont retreat 2016
It was an experience I will never forget. From the moment my plane arrived till I left down the mountain, I was so thrilled to be there! Thank you Rebecca for fulfilling a “bucket list experience” for me. I came home a changed Tapestry Weaver and learned so much from you and all that gathered together. There was a passion there for learning this extraordinary art form and I was so grateful to be a part of it! Your spirit for teaching others and friendship will always be a gift to me! It was an incredible five day journey for me and I know for those who were able to attend.
