Our 2nd Virtual Sewing Retreat starts this week and we couldn’t be more excited! This year, our retreat is summer-camp themed so we are forming cabins, prepping s’mores, and getting ready to gather around the campfire.
Getting Ready for Camp
The sewing room opens at noon on Thursday, keep an eye out for an email with the Zoom link.
Before retreat, campers should look through the website and their swag bag (if applicable) to get ready for camp. Here is an optional to-do list before retreat starts:
- Organize your sewing projects
- Check out the Schedule to be sure you don’t miss out on Activities
- Prep ingredients for our daily Campfire Cocktails
- (including mocktail option)
- Reach out to cabin mates
- Thank our sponsors!
Morning Coffee and Evening Campfires
We are kicking off the retreat Thurdsay night with a visit from some SPECIAL GUESTS, so be sure to be in the sewing room by 6pm for fun and prizes.
That will be followed by the Opening Campfire which officially starts our long weekend together.
We’ve got lots of fun in store for our campers. Each morning, after reveille, we’ll stretch and sip coffee together, and each evening we’ll gather around the campfire for a cocktail and an activity.
We’ve built in some small group sewing each day to get out of the big sewing room and enjoy some time around a smaller table.
Throughout the weekend we have a couple of special guests stopping by to say hello. We also have our friendly cabin competition which culminates in a fun activity just before the closing ceremonies on Sunday.
We are coming to camp to sew and sew-cialize but, let’s be honest, we also love the swag! Our swag bags are packed with great treats from our generous sponsors.
We also have some fun prizes planned throughout retreat. You must be present to win, so check out the Activities page for the planned times, but we may pop in with some random drawings as well!
So, let’s give a giant THANK YOU to our wonderful sponsors. Their generosity makes our retreat that much more special and it wouldn’t be the same without them!
