Join us for a weekend of sewing fun... all from the comfort of your own home. Stay home, wear your PJ's, and sew all weekend with fellow fabric nerds!
This retreat centers around the Stitch Your Story book. From politics to poetry, using fabric and letters to say something on quilt tops is the hottest trend in quilting today. Everyone will receive a copy of the book, but of course, but if you want to join the retreat to sew something else, you're welcome to.
PLEASE NOTE: Because we will be making words, please expect that participants will be making all sorts of phrases, perhaps with curse words. Some quilters may not appreciate the words or phrases others use. Please keep this in mind when deciding to join in this retreat.
We will be hosting this Virtual Retreat on Zoom, with scheduled times to get together to chat, show off our progress, and have giveaways. It's going to be a ton of fun!

Q: How is a "retreat" different from a class?
A: There is no formal instruction in a retreat, each person chooses their own project and sews at their own pace. Everyone chats while stitching, and those who want to collaborate or help each other can do so.
Q: Do I need to do any prep work before the retreat starts?
A: It's totally up to you. Some people like to plan out their project or choose fabrics, others like to start from zero at the beginning of the retreat and see how much they can do in a weekend.
Q: What fabrics are in the mystery bundle? Do I need to use them in my retreat project?
A: The fabrics are a surprise, curated just for this retreat. Use the fabrics in your retreat project if you want, or save them for later, it's up to you.
Q: Do I need to be online the entire time?
A: Absolutely not, we expect people to pop in and out as they wish throughout the weekend.
Q: When will the retreat package arrive?
A: Packages will arrive at your home (or be ready for pickup) at least 2 weeks before the retreat starts.
