The Fine Print

About the stitching room: The Mills Park Hotel banquet hall is a large, well-lit facility with interior access to the hotel. There are a number of electrical outlets around the outside of the room and extension cords are permitted so long as they are used in such a way to avoid creating a trip hazard. Snacks are permitted on the tables, but no centerpieces, decorations, or balloons may be set up. For safety, it is recommended that any snacks or candy be individually wrapped. Only meals and alcohol purchased on-site is permitted in the banquet hall. All other meals and alcohol must be consumed in your room.

Room restrictions: Air mattresses, rollaway beds, or additional sleeping arrangements are not permitted. Occupancy limits are four individuals per double room and two individuals per single room. Candles, open flames, warming plates, Crock pots, and other heating or cooking devices are strictly prohibited in all rooms.

Registration: Registration for all rooms will be first-come, first-served. Once all rooms are filled, you may request to be added to the wait list in case someone cancels. If a spot becomes available, the next person on the wait list will be given 24 hours to register for the event before it moves to the next person. Payment in full is due 14 days prior to the event. Any cancellations by the attendee within 14 days of the event will be non-refundable unless the spot can be filled from those on the waiting list.

Attendance limits: In order to allow for social distancing, the maximum number of attendees that can register is 45. If all available hotel rooms fill and the event has not reached the maximum, a limited number of “day pass” registrations will become available for a reduced cost. These registrations will include all of the benefits of the event except for overnight accommodations.

Covid restrictions: The hosts will ensure that the event conforms to any restrictions or recommendations set forth by the state of Ohio and by the Ohio Hotel & Lodging Association. While your safety is our utmost priority, there are inherent risks in attending any event. It is up to you as the attendee to determine whether you are comfortable attending and you assume any risks associated with attending.

All guests must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times while in public areas of the hotel. This includes the stitching room, lobby, hallways, and restaurant. For the safety of all attendees, guests who are not able to wear face coverings will not be able to attend.

All tables and chairs in the stitching room will be set to allow for social distancing at all times. We ask all attendees to maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more at all times during the event. We also ask that you please do not move or rearrange chairs and tables. If you choose to move to a different chair, we recommend you sanitize the area before settling in.

Hand sanitizer and sanitizing products such as antibacterial wipes will be available at all times.

Travel: Please make sure you are aware of any travel restrictions or quarantine requirements for your city or state before attending. Due to the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, we do not recommend making travel plans that are non-refundable.

Cancellation: In the event that Ohio state guidelines prevent us from hosting the event, all registration fees will be refunded.
