POWWOW CELEBRATION AND RETREAT IN SOAP LAKE - May 31 thru June 3rd Call 509-754-8280 to make reservations!!

Confederated Colville Tribes are sponsoring the Soap Lake Pow Wow on June 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This type of celebration originates as an intertribal social gathering of traditional drumming, singing and dancing. It is a “contest Pow Wow” where dancers compete within age groups for prizes. The drum groups and dancers who attend the Soap Lake Pow Wow are from communities throughout central and eastern Washington. Most of the prize money is raised through donations. In addition to drumming and dancing, they bring bead, art and food vendors and all of this is going on in the park right across from our Retreat/Event Center. It is an exciting and spiritual event and very interesting to watch. You should bring your picnic blanket or lawn chairs and hang out in the park. The Retreat/Event Center is right across the road from the event and we can easily go back and forth to the events in between sewing and piecing. We are hosting a few exciting guests for dinner and every meal will be Native American inspired. We have baked salmon, roasted squash salad, tomato pie, fried bread and wild rice soup on the menu. Our retreat is for 3 nights, four days. We will be working on two projects that will have a native indian/southwest design, and learning the "Machine Embroidery on Your Domestic Machine" technique. Call the shop for availability. Price is only $399 for the all-inclusive Retreat.
