Sew and Sew Retreats was brought to life by two women, friends, Linda Sweek ( that's me) and Roxanne Terranova. We love to be creative and value the opportunity to be creative together.
We thought others might value the opportunity to be creative and learn together too, as well as enjoy a getaway - a sewing retreat with creative textile projects, where one can laugh, relax, create and sew.
Starting in September, sewists can attend an urban retreat at ALOFT Hotel Downtown Milwaukee held September 25 thru the 27. Then November 6, 7 and 8, Sew and Sew Retreats is hosting a getaway at the Blue Harbor Resort & Spa in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Complete information can be found at www.sewandsewretreats.com.
Sew and Sew Retreats is for everyone from confident beginners to seasoned sewers. The workshops are diverse in skill level with complete instructions. Some prior sewing experience and comfort working a sewing machine is needed.
Retreat highlights will include:
Activities such as Show and Tell, Swap and Batik Fabric Exchange
Free time to enjoy a resort's amenities or explore local sites and shops
Scheduled time for sewing one’s own projects
Together we have almost a combined 85 years' experience in textiles including sewing, embroidery, cross-stitch, beading, quilting, and 'sew' much more. Either one or both of us also brings are knowledge of teaching, hosting workshops and planning large events. A little bit about us:
