Tickets for our sew:beach retreat go on sale in one month! That's right, mark your calendars for June 1st so you are sure to get a ticket because they will be available at noon.
We have the cottages all booked, the teachers all excited, and the fabric and swag bags all ready for 20 lucky sewists... now we're busy planning the fun little details!
A Secret Sister Swap
All of the sew:beach participants will have the chance to participate in our Secret Sister Swap! We'll send you a list of questions to answer (telling us more about you) and then match you up with a secret sister who you get to make a little surprise bundle for. Each bundle should include one small handmade gift, one sewing item to inspire her next project, and something yummy. At our first sew:beach breakfast on Thursday morning you'll meet your secret sister and find out what she made for you!
Lovelies on Display - mini show
Let's see what you've made!!! I'm hoping that everyone who comes will be willing to send in at least one item for our mini-show. Will you send in a quilt, a table topper, a pair of hot pads... or ??? We'll set up our mini show throughout the retreat area for everyone to browse and enjoy.
The Scrappy Quilt of Love
Want to do something more in your free sewing time? Bring a bag of scraps (a gallon zip lock will be plenty). We'll put all our scraps together and after a quick demonstration on stitching made-fabric, anyone with a little free time can sew a scrappy block for our Scrappy Quilt of Love. Hopefully it will get finished and then one lucky gal will take it home. She can keep it as a memento or gift it to someone in need.
And we have even more fun things planned like a field trip for key lime tartlets and fabric shopping, beach breaks, and late night sewing soirees. So make sure you come back to the ticket page on June 1st at noon, EST!
Please show our sew:beach sponsors some love... it wouldn't be possible without them!
