Sew-In Retreats

Three times a year, members of the Guild meet for a weekend of sewing, inspiration, guidance, laughing, eating and a whole lot of fun! Sleeping is optional. Participants work on their own projects and, although we do not have a special teacher for these retreats, occasionally someone will demonstrate a new tool or technique.

The $60 fee covers your portion of the meeting room, which is our sewing room for the weekend. We get a special block room rate at the hotel, arranged through our retreat coordinator. At checkout, you will need to pay the hotel directly for your guest room, whether it is a single or shared room.

Be certain to add these important dates for these exciting, entertaining, get-away weekends to your calendar! For more information contact

Some things to note:

  • The sewing room is available from 8 AM Friday to 6PM Sunday. You may come and go as your schedule allows.
  • You will have your own sewing table, and there are shared cutting tables and irons provided by the hotel.
  • Bring all the supplies for your project, including cutting tools and a light. (If you forget something, there are plenty of retail options nearby.)
  • The cost of your room and meals are not included in the registration fee. Rooms are approximately $95 plus tax for double occupancy and come with a coffee maker, refrigerator, and a microwave. A lot of dining options are within a short drive.
  • DO NOT MAKE YOUR OWN ROOM RESERVATION!!!! All room reservations are handled through the retreat coordinator. If you have any questions about your reservation, please contact her through If you contact the hotel on your own, you may end up making an additional reservation, for which you will be responsible.
