 ++ What meals are provided for the Sew Fancy Retreat? Are there many dining options nearby?

Lunches will be provided in your full registration fee for your two class days - your open sew day is not included (so you can venture out if you'd like, but you can also add on this day). You will be on your own for dinner. We will have all day beverage service provided. The hotel has Toro inside, which is an amazing Latin cuisine, but there are many options just down the street, as well. When we chose the location for Sew Fancy, we chose the heart of Cherry Creek, so you won’t have a hard time finding a good place to eat. We will have an awesome map with a list of nearby shops and restaurants for you! There's also a Starbucks nearby for your morning caffeine fix too!
