Location: Masonic Lodge, 40 W 1st St, Reno

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm (8-ish)

We do mean simple – one that you can whip up inside 2 hours and get some ideas on what embellishments or finishing details interest you. We’ll have several patterns from which to pick and most may only involve cutting the fabric and try it on and/or finish if you bring your serger or sewing machine and some fold-over elastic or bias binding. Think drapey fabric like a fleece, knit, or rayon batik. We’ll have some creations at the November Sew-ical for you to check out.

LOCATION: Zephyr Cove Presbyterian Conference Center
DATE:  April 2-6 (Mon-Fri)

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 final price will reflect the extra day of sewing – but all felt that we all too often ran out of time and wanted the extra day. HERE is the application form. Fees increase after March 1, 2018 (from $425 to $450 for members for 5 days, 4 night stay with meals).

As before, you’re welcome to come Sunday afternoon to help set up the tables in the sewing room and spend that first night – we share a bed and room to keep costs down (e.g. 1 room to fit 6). Or just come Sunday, help set up the workspaces and your own and skip the night stay.
