PR Weekend is a weekend get-away held to bring the PatternReview members closer, support local sewing-related businesses and share our love of sewing.

As always, this PR Weekend promises to be a fun-filled time with lots of activities, fabulous shopping, great food and plenty of time spent with fellow sewists, talking and learning and feeding on each other's creativity.

We had an awesome PR Weekend last year in Chicago and we are looking forward to another great event this year as we bring you some really fun guest speakers, tours, yummy food and of course GREAT Shopping!

Read on to find out what has been planned for you!

Our speaker this year is none other than Kenneth King! Our much loved online class instructor, author and couturier. Who better than him to inspire us with his "Greatest Hits" seminar in which he'll share with us his work and inspiration from the last 25 years.


MAKE founder and author of the book Sew everything workshop, Diana Rupp!

Our guest speaker event (Saturday, May 19th) will be held at Pace University, in the heart of New York City (One Pace Plaza)

Sleeping rooms have been reserved at the Four Points by Sheraton at 160 W 25th St, a walking distance from the Fashion District!

Breakfast and lunch for the PR Weekend are on your own.

The PR Weekend registration fee is $115 (non-refundable) and includes:

  • Dinner at a local restaurant on Saturday night
  • Conference Room Rental
  • Full-day seminar with Kenneth King and Diana Rupp
  • Prizes and Gift Bag
  • PR Weekend Program Guide Booklet

Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Spots are limited, so register early!

When we've filled the spots, we WILL close the registration. So make sure you register sooner rather than later.

I live in New York and can only make it for Kenneth King seminar. Do you have a one day pass rate.

I thought I would spend the night but not in the budget and so I will be taking the train to and from NJ. I am looking forward to meeting other sewing enthusiasts.

What time do events start in the morning? I would probably be commuting from NJ by train.

I am new to Pattern Review and would love to join the PR Weekend in New York. This post says it is on May 18-20 but then it looks like some of the programs may be on May 17. I would like to know if this is true. (I will have to schedule off from work to attend and not sure I can attend if the programs are on Thursday, May 17th.)

Oh wow, I didn't realize the hotel was so expensive...may have to find an alternatuve. Is it $245 per person or per room?
Deepika said... (2/27/12 5:38 PM) Reply
The hotel has given us a rate of $249/room/night plus taxes. The registration fee is the same whether you attend one day or two. Regarding sharing rooms, we do have a spreadsheet which you can get access to once you sign up. Anyone who is going can put up their name there and ask for a roomie or a rideshare (if you are driving). Circle Line We will send a separate email out about that.

I am interested in the Circle Line Cruise as well. Can my husband go on the cruise as well or is it just members? And I need to know about any specials on the hotel rate as well. Thanks!

I'm assuming the registration fee is $115 if you attend 1 day or 3 days (like most conferences). Since is a New York venue, I think the prices are attractive. In terms of the hotel, is there a negotiated rate?. Or do you provide assistance to match sewers who would like to share a hotel room?

Is there a special rate for the hotel?

What if I can only make it on Saturday?

Is there a special conference rate for the hotel? I'm seeing $249 per night.

How do I book the hotel?
Deepika said... (2/21/12 2:06 PM) Reply
MissLadyAudrey, if we get a group of 20 or more, its $29 per person. It's awesome!
