I want to tell you all about the Sewing Retreat we had last weekend. I used to go to Retreat quite regularly, from memory five a year, but you know life takes over and for some reason I just never got back to it. I am so glad I organized this Retreat and intend to keep them going.
For me the best part of a Retreat is how friendly everyone is and how much I enjoyed their company. While it can be over-whelming meeting new strangers we all share sewing as our common interest no matter what type or level sewist you happen to be.
It feels great to set aside that time to attend a retreat to foster your creativity, get inspired, share your experiences but also to recharge yourself for the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You never know you may just walk away with more than just completed projects.
On our weekend, Retreaters brought their own sewing machines and projects that they either yearned to start or ones to be finished. We had a big warm room with ample space to spread out where we could sew from sun up to sun down without interruptions from children or partners.
All meals were catered by myself and I feel that the meals were delicious and plentiful. I wanted each attendee to feel relaxed, important and not have to worry about meals. So I was more than happy to cater for anyone who is vegetarian, gluten free or dairy free not only to make them feel special but because it makes me learn too.
I came home tired but energized, my heart full and satisfied, new friends and cannot wait for the next Retreat.
If you would like to retreat with us we have the next one planned for October just let me know.
