Sew It's Time Sewing Retreat
Posted on August 20 2019
Have you been to a sewing retreat before? You know, the kind where there are no kids or husbands or significant others to take care of? Where there's no laundry, cooking, or dishes to be done? The kind of weekend where you meet up with friends just to sew?
How about attending a retreat where you focus on having fun, making new friends, learning new techniques, actually getting something done and laugh while you are doing it?
Each retreat is a memory maker. Once they are over, you start wondering when the next one will be. So, Quilted Works has decided to help you make some memories with our Sew It's Time Retreat. We know you will have questions about our event so here is the breakdown of what our weekend will look like.
