NAHSL Conference 2012 Events
Sunday, October 28
Enjoy a cocktail reception from 6 to 8 pm at Simon Pearce overlooking the falls in Quechee, Vermont. Hors d’oeuvres featuring local ingredients from nearby community farms will be served, and there will be a cash bar. Tour the wonderful shop full of handmade pottery and glass. Want to see the glassblowers in action? The glassblowing workshop will be open: watch these skilled artisans at work and ask questions!
Just can’t resist shopping while you’re there? All attendees at the welcome reception will receive 20% off 1st quality pottery and glass for purchases made that evening (the discount does not apply to seconds).
If you’d like to enjoy Simon Pearce’s offerings even further, you might consider staying for dinner at The Simon Pearce Restaurant following the reception (please note: this is not a NAHSL-sponsored event). Dinner is served from 6 to 9 pm, and reservations made directly with the restaurant are required.If you make a three-course dinner reservation (appetizer/salad, entrée, and dessert) for the night of Sunday, October 28th by Wednesday, October 24th, and mention that you're with the NAHSL group, you will also receive a glass gift, compliments of Simon Pearce. Please note that if you stay later for dinner you’ll need a car, as the provided bus transportation will be leaving Simon Pearce to return to the Woodstock Inn at 8:15 pm. If you choose to drive, it’s an easy 15 minute commute. For restaurant reservations, please call (802) 295-1470. More information: Simon Pearce resumes operation after flooding.
