Posted on Oct 20, 2019
Camp Sew & Sew at Zephyr Point
LOCATION: Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center
DATE: March 29 – April 3 (Sun-Fri), 2020
Join us at our annual sewing retreat. We’ll again have that beautiful room, Inspiration Point, that looks out over the lake with huge windows, so join us for some fun and finish your various projects. The price has increased this year by $50, BUT we’re offering a means to earn a $100 rebate (sent after the retreat) if you will complete 25 items for our community service (stockings or ditty bags) effort. The details and instructions will be available later, but right now we have the registration form HERE. Fees increase after Feb 1, 2020 (for example from $475 to $500 for members for 5 days, 4 night stay with meals). We are trying to encourage other chapters to participate but will limit our total to 24 participants. Sign up early; payment guarantees you’re IN for the event (all payments are due by Feb 1 postmark).
As before, we’ll be setting up the Inspiration workroom from 3pm onwards. We’ll have all the keys to rooms available after 3pm on Sunday. Our first meal will be Sunday dinner (6pm) and end with Friday breakfast. We must exit our rooms by 11am and the workroom by noon on Friday.
For those wishing to receive a $100 rebate, you need to make 25 items for our military community service. There are 2 types of items to make: ditty bag (square) or Christmas stocking. There sewing and serging instructions for the ditty bag, but just the serging instructions for the stocking (the assembly differs with sewing since there’s an inside seam, so we recommend using the serger). Below are links to the instructions (click on the item). We will provide the drawstring and toggle at Camp for you to finish your ditty bags. We will inspect the items to ensure they meet our standards.
- Serger instructions for both ditty bag and stocking
- Sewing instructions for ditty bag
- Stocking pattern (3 pages taped together will be the stocking pattern of 17.5″ length)
