The Lounge at Hidden Hills


Welcome to the Lounge!


Need a place to put up your feet for a minute?  Have a bit of hand sewing (or machine sewing!) but don’t want to be in your room alone? Want to be able to sit and visit with old friends, new friends, or meet other attendees?  Welcome to the Lounge at Hidden Hills!  (See the back of the book for a map!)  This is a new place for you to sit back, relax, have a glass of lemonade or ice tea, and spread out your sewing or spread out the project from your last class.  No need to worry about time lost waiting for an elevator to get to class as all classes are either on the same floor, or up a nearby set of stairs.  (Elevators are also close by for those whom stairs are not an option.)


(The Lounge will be a dedicated place where everyone can remove their masks while actively eating or drinking, and will be gathering in groups.  If you are concerned about being in a space where people are not masked, we recommend not visiting the Lounge this year.)


Aside from a place to gather, sew, and snack, what else is happening in the Lounge?


On Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning, the Lounge will become a Teacher’s Lounge, with coffee, tea and snacks for all Costume College Teachers!


The Lounge will be open to all Costume College attendees from 9:00am-5:00pm Friday, 9:00am-11:00pm Saturday, and 9:00am-11:30am and 5:00pm-9:00pm on Sunday.


During this time, the Lounge will also be host to the Portrait Studio!  Come, show off your wonders, and have your portrait taken by our photographer (see more details under “Portrait Studio”.)


Want to meet our Board Members?  During select times Friday-Sunday, our Board Members will host the Lounge, so you can sit, chat, discuss what’s on your mind, or just hang out!  (Schedule is still TBD.)


The Lounge will also host the Trunk Show!  During select times Friday-Sunday, Trunk Show vendors will also be in the Lounge!  (Schedule is still TBD.)


But wait, there’s more!  On Thursday night, the Lounge will be open to Teachers as a Teachers Reception and Check-In, and then be open to all attendees as part of the Thursday Night Pool Party!


On Friday Night, the Lounge will be open as a part of the Friday Night Social!


On Sunday, the Lounge will close early before transforming for the Sunday Tea!
