Sewing Retreat – Vancouver Island

$ 1,050.00$ 1,150.00

March 31 – April 3, 2022

Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia

Join me and other makers for 4 days of making, community, and a chance to step away from your day to day life and just create.  We will spend our time at a lovely house on Vancouver Island.

We’ll kick off our shoes, get comfortable, and make new friends.

This retreat is for sewists of all levels and intended to be unstructured time to make together.  In addition to sewing two projects together we will be dyeing fabric with indigo and ice dye. 

Please plan to bring along a WIP or supplies for additional projects for the weekend if you happen to get finished with the projects we are sewing.  There will also be ample time for hanging out with other makers or explore the area.

Included in your registration:

  • 3-night accommodation at a home in Shawnigan Lake.
  • All meals, drinks, and snacks throughout the day.
  • Fabric and patterns for group sewing projects.
  • Sewing Machines
  • A goodie bag filled with some of my favourite sewing tools and patterns.

A payment plan for your registration is available through Partially.  Please see the payment plan policy below before proceeding.
