Event details

In light of the current public health situation we have decided to postpone this event.  At this time we do not yet have a date in mind, we will update as we get more information.


Who would have thought that a weekend event focused on a single topic – embroidery – would draw attendees from multiple Kingdoms for five years running?

You did!

Because of you, we have enjoyed five years of sharing, five years of learning, and most importantly, five years of an ever-growing community of stitchers!

The Shire of Abhainn Ciach Ghlais hopes you will join us as we celebrate this milestone!

Whether this is your first time putting needle to thread or you're an embroidery veteran, if you’ve been waiting for the know-how or the motivation, or if you are already Itchin’ to Get Stitchin’, this weekend event devoted to the art of the needle will enable and inspire you!

The Academy of St.  Clare features:
• Small, specialized classes on single topics.  These classes are usually one hour in length and are taught by embroiderers for embroiderers.  They require no special sign-up before the event.
• Long, detailed Kit Classes on beloved styles.  NOTE:  Kit Classes have limited spaces and require sign-up and payment in advance.  Kit Class Sign-up opens on January 15, 2020, and ends on March 1, 2020.  (For more information, please visit the event website.)
• Time to spend with fellow embroiderers, relishing the relaxed atmosphere with others who share your passion for stitching.

NOTE:  The event is limited to 80 attendees.  Additional registrants will be added to a waiting list.  If we have cancellations, open slots will be offered to gentles on the waiting list in the order in which they were received.  We currently have over 40 registered attendees.  Please send your event registration SOON to avoid disappointment!  (Last year, this event was SOLD OUT at the beginning of March.)

Google Map


Find your best route to the intersection of PA-45 & PA-235 in Hartley Township, PA 17845.  If coming from the west, the last town you travel through will be Woodward.  If coming from the east, the last town will be Hartleton.)

At the intersection, turn onto Route 235 South.

From this turn, follow signs for 235 South through Laurelton (last chance for food, gas, and ATM).  After navigating the first 90-degree turn, continue straight ahead onto Lincoln Chapel Road instead of making a second 90-degree turn.  At the next stop sign, turn left onto Paddy Mountain Road. 

At the T-intersection, turn right onto Creek Road.  Penns Creek will be on your left.  When you pass a large 3-story stone house with three arches on your right, you are about one mile from the Camp.

Just before you cross the bridge over Penns Creek, Penns Creek Campground will be on your right.  Cross the bridge and turn right at the sign for Thomas Dam Road/Boy Scout Camp.

Camp Karoondinha is up the hill, on the left.  But at this point, all you'll see is the parking area.  (Ignore the big sign that proclaims, “No cars beyond this point”!)

Turn left into the parking lot and drive up the hill to the Dining Hall, the large stone building with 3 flagpoles in front.  Follow the road around to the right (as you approach it from downhill); Troll will be inside the double doors on the right side of the building.
