DSC_0045Situated on 10 acres of wooded land outside of New Orleans, Weavin’ Place ~ SAORI Style offers self-catered overnight accommodations for those desiring an extended retreat.  The residential facilities share the campus with the studio, which is a short walk away – a perfect get away from the everyday rush.  The Retreat Center is offered in conjunction with Louisiana Studio Events as well as for Fiber Retreats privately scheduled.
