Guild Retreats @ New Location

Our next retreats will be at our new location! Have fun and sew and make new friends in a dedicated sewing space for 4 whole days! You can bring snacks to share with others, a bunch of projects, and bedding and towels. This facility is cleaner, newer and nicer than what we had before. Mark your calendars to be sure you can set aside this time to sew with us every year!
