Hello Stitchers, 
 
Registration is now open for the West Coast Stitching Weekend 2023!!  The dates are May 5 - 7, 2023 so save the dates in your calendar.  The stitching weekend will again be held at the Hilton Sacramento Arden Way.  In 2023 we will be in a different stitching room and the maximum number of attendees is 75.  The registration fees are $360.  The reason for the registration fee increase is due to the food cost increases by the hotel and additional expenses incurred in hosting the stitching weekend.  
 
Please remember I do not host this event to make money.  The fees charged are to cover the various expenses in hosting the stitching weekend
 
Listed below is an outline of what is included in the registration fees.  I am still working on additional activities and will send out updates once I have confirmation for all activities.

Stitching room open 8:00am - 10:30 pm daily (except 2-hrs on Friday for dinner break)

Attached to this email announcement is the WCS Registration Form for 2023.  You may scan and email the completed Registration form or mail it to me along with the registration fees to:  
 
            Kate Matthews - 4415 Hydra Way, Elk Grove, CA  95758
            Email address:  wcstitchers@yahoo.com
 
This year I am trying out using PayPal as an option to pay the registration fees.  You can still mail a check to the address listed above and also on the registration form.    Be sure to select "friends and families" so there are no fees charged to use PayPal.  The attendee is responsible for any PayPal fees.
 
I have negotiated a discounted hotel room rate at the Hilton Arden Way of $139/night plus taxes.  There are a total of 105 room nights in the WCS Group Block.  If the 105 room nights has been met and there are more attendees that want to stay at the hotel, I cannot guarantee I can get you the discounted room rate, but I will try.  If the Group Block is full, please contact me.  The additional hotel room nights will be on a case-by-case basis.
 
You need to make your own hotel reservations and pay the room fees to the Hilton.  You are not required to stay at the hotel, but in order for WCS to receive the discounted room rate I am required to guarantee reservations for 90 room nights.  If we do not meet the goal of 90 room nights, I will personally be required to pay for the balance of unreserved rooms.  
 
Please remember you are responsible for your own hotel room fees.   Hotel Reservations for 2023 can be made by using either option A or B:
 
A) You can call the hotel direct at:  916-922-4700 ext #1 and the Group Code is:  WCS
 
B)  Click on the following link:     https://bit.ly/3OP7hQ8
 
If you have any additional questions regarding WCS 2023 you can email or call me anytime.   Please note the email address for WCS:  wcstitchers@yahoo.com.
