Sewing & Quilting Retreats, Part 6

What Sewing Enthusiasts are Saying About Their Retreat Experience

People who sew are a special lot. You have chosen a hobby that is all about giving. You make things to give as gifts. You sew Easter dresses for your grand-daughters, or t-shirt quilts for your grandsons who are graduating from high school. After you’ve made quilts for every relative, friend or casual acquaintance — you look around and start sewing for charity. You make quilts for Quilts of Valor, or you sew pillowcases for children in cancer wards.

You know who you are. You are thoughtful, kind and generous. Maybe it’s time you directed some of that towards YOURSELF. Take advantage of this hobby you love — SEWING — and go on a retreat. Invite sewing friends to join you — or go by yourself to make new friends. Consider your next retreat a gift you are giving yourself.

Because you’ve earned it . . . . Still on the bubble? Here are some of the comments from people who have attended a sewing retreat or two.


Don’t forget school kids. They like to sew too!

I have been to two retreats in Shipshewana IN. Quilt n Go quilt shop in East Leroy, MI has three retreats in Shipshewana: April, August and November. It is a well run retreat. Just bring your machine, projects and clothes. Everything is taken care of so you can sew.Gail M.

I adore sewing retreats and make them my holiday destinations. I choose retreats based on what I will learn if they are taught, as well as traveling distance and cost. Twice a year I attend retreats that are just “do your own thing” with friends for get togethers. We learn from and inspire each other.Bren H.

I will be teaching at the Sewcial Escape hosted by SewMichelle in July. Retreats are a unique experience – multi-days with those that share your passion!Lisa S.

I am hosting a sewing retreat this week in McCall ID! Looking forward to a great weekend of sewing and sharing!Beth C.

Went to my first sewing retreat with a friend. I loved sewing from sun up to sun down and someone else doing the cooking. Signed up again for next year!Patsy M.

I’m a huge fan of the Modern Stitching Affair. Wendy F

I get so much done because I have to get organized. There are no outside distractions… just sew, sewing, SEWING!Anonymous
