Come Away with Us...
Art, sun, desert life, fine New Mexican cuisine...
there's no other place quite like it. And there is no better way to spend a week than with friends, Norah Gaughan teaching with the fibers of the region, and exploring the rich culture of the American Southwest.

Our week in Northern New Mexico….. is an all-inclusive retreat.
We begin in Santa Fe spending our first evening together at the elegant Hotel de Chimayo then progressing to the hills along the River Chama to Abiquiu where Georgia O'Keefe made her home and studio.
Our home away from home will be the Abiquiu Inn. From there we will make daily excursions to historic sites, fiber producers, weavers and dyers, enjoy fine New Mexican dining and visit an historic mineral springs spa once visited by ranchers, cowboys and local natives back in the 1800's.
At the conclusion of our week away we will return to Santa Fe for one last night at the Hotel de Chimayo before saying goodbye the next morning.
