New Sew South Retreats!

Thursday, March 31, 2016

I'm so excited to announce the next three Sew South Retreats for 2016/2017!

Since 2012 I've hosted Sew South, and I'm so happy to bring you three retreats for Summer, Fall and Spring.


I would love for you to join me! 

Sew South Retreats

Sew South Retreats are so much fun. Girls' Weekends are filled with sewing, creating, connecting and friendship.

Each Sew South retreat has 14 attendees. The small groups make for big fun and allow for friendships and camaraderie among the whole group. We have swaps, play games, eat together and sew together.

Check out this video recap of the retreats.

The workshops at Sew South are fun and interactive and you'll come home with some great finished projects. There is also time for open sewing where you can work on your own projects throughout the weekend.

  1. When will we know if our names are chosen? Excited & hoping I can attend :) Thanks!

  2. This is a great place, it’s superb that the people from this event venue Chicago recognize that the holiday party is the time to celebrate not only the year’s achievements, but the talent and teamwork that made those achievements possible.

  3. I do not have any quilty friends or family members. If I were to be chosen, is this a retreat that someone can go to alone? I've been wanting to go for a long time now, but I'm always afraid to put my name in and I get picked, I wouldn't have anybody to go with.

  4. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way! paypal login
