Sew South: A Retreat that is Nearby (ish)

Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts is organizing a sewing retreat, and it's in driving distance of DC!  I thought I would share her information, just in case anyone in our guild would like to attend. Jennifer is gracious and fun and I'm sure it's going to be a wonderful weekend! 

Sew South is a modern sewing retreat where you will sew, create, learn, play and connect with other modern sewists and bloggers. 

Sew South is a boutique retreat, big on substance and style but small in size for a wonderful, personal experience. 

It's a place to be inspired, relax and learn something new. Come spend a weekend sewing, laughing, and creating. A spring weekend in the South sewing with friends, taking time for yourself, finding your inspiration- that's the Sew South Retreat.

What's included?
  • 4 Make & Take workshops including quilting and paper piecing, bag making and garment sewing taught by experienced sewists and bloggers
  • plenty of open sewing time
  • a fabric field trip to The Little General in Winston Salem, NC
  • a cocktail reception
  • breakfasts, lunches and snacks during the retreat
  • fabric and goodie swaps
  • opportunities to connect with other modern sewists and bloggers
  • a swanky swag bag
Sew South is March 21-24, 2013 in Charlotte, North Carolina
Come be a part of our inaugural year! I hope you'll join us! 

Tickets  are $275 and go on sale on Wednesday, October 24 at noon, EST. 
This retreat is limited to 50 people so don't miss out!
