|Seminar 2018: FAQ|
How do I get to Seminar?
If you are traveling by air, you can arrive at one of three airports. The airports include Reagan National Airport (DCA), Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI). DCA is closest to the hotel and BWI is the farthest from the hotel. There is also train access on Amtrak to Union Station. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has subway service from DCA to the hotel. There is also bus service from IAD to a subway station in Reston and then subway service to the hotel. Visit their website (https://www.wmata.com) to determine the best route to get to the hotel which is at the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan stop on the red line. Taxi, shuttle, and limousine service is available from the airports.
If you are traveling by car, self-parking will be provided with a 15% discount and valet parking will be at prevailing rates..
What is the dress code for Seminar?
Dress casually and comfortably, and to ensure comfort, dress in layers. Remember, Seminar is fragrance-free. The Welcome and Farewell Banquets are not formal, but most participants wear “elegant casual,” somewhere between formal and casual.
What about the weather?
Washington, DC has bright, sunny summers and it may be humid. During our stay, it is likely to be in the high 80’s during the daytime hours and mid 60’s at night. Of course the hotel will be air-conditioned! We do recommend, if you plan to be out during the day, that you wear plenty of sunscreen and stay well hydrated.
How will I receive the Seminar newsletters?
The Seminar newsletters will be sent out by e-mail only.
How will I know what to bring to class?
About a month prior to Seminar, your teacher(s) will send you a letter telling you what supplies to bring. Always plan on bringing the supplies you usually stitch with: laying tool, scissors, extra needles, etc. ADDITIONAL CLASSROOM LIGHTING BROUGHT BY STUDENTS MUST BE BATTERY-POWERED. ANG NO LONGER ALLOWS THE USE OF PLUG-IN LIGHTS, POWER STRIPS, OR EXTENSION CORDS FOR LIGHTING IN THE CLASSROOMS. Class space is often limited, so please refrain from bringing excessive equipment and large items such as a floor stand.
