Trick or Treat in Tennessee

12 years of Trick or Treating

October 16th to 19th 2014

DuBose Conference Center

Monteagle Tennessee


East Tennessee MiniMakers, Winifred Holloway and Becky Lipscomb cordially invite you to a weekend of fun, friendship and miniature workshops. The cost is $300, all inclusive, seven home cooked meals and three nights lodging. $10.00 extra if you want to stay for Sunday morning breakfast before heading home.

On Thursday, the 16th we'll start with Natalie Harwood's complimentary workshop followed by supper in the dining hall. Then it's off to the chapel for round table workshops (anyone can teach one) and visiting and the first sales period.

Friday and Saturday are filled with half and full day workshops and three good meals each day. On Friday evening we'll trick or treat (in costume if you wish) in the lower hall of the dorm, and weather permitting, roast marshmallows and tell ghost stories by the bonfire. On Saturday evening we'll have our dessert and sherbert punch in the chapel and have our last sales period.

During the days we'll have our raffle for wonderful prizes brought by our generous guests and teachers and also have super table favors at each meal!

Our special gift this year is a half scale piece of furniture by Scarlett Frayser, Scarlett and Gary have some health issues that are keeping them near home but they are still at Monteagle each year in our hearts.

Our first floor rooms are very limited and fill quickly so if you require no steps let me know and we'll try to arrange something. We have a waiting list every year for those rooms.

100% of our raffle sales support the Christian Applachisn Projects's Hungry Kids Fund, providing meals when no school breakfasts and lunches are provided.....summer vacation, school holidays, weekends. Last year we sent $2000 to this worthy cause.


You may start making payments any time and send class selections in too. We plan ahead so as soon as you decide to come please let us know. Also please feel free to share this invitation with your friends and club members.

Email me with any questions or telephone (423) 899-2444. Send deposits to East Tennessee MiniMakers 1910 Bella vista Dr Chattanooga TN 37421. Payment in full is due by October when we have to pay the conference center.
