~ Get in the Flow ~

Remember what it's like to forget to eat...

because you're so deep in the flow of your craft.
And no one's tugging at your sleeve, or impatiently waiting for you to finish already.

To lose yourself and, finally, take the time to find yourself.

Now imagine you get to do that, but with Friends! Like-minded Maker friends.

~ Find Your People ~

Friends you already have a connection with.

Friends who...

  • like to talk about mindfulness
  • love to make
  • and who see you


The you who craves connection and really, just wants to channel your grandma, change the world (one choice at a time), stand in your power, wear clothes with authority and practice self-care. That's all.

But...do you feel a little nervous about putting yourself out there and spending your precious time with strangers? I mean, what if nobody gets you? What if you spend your time alone, in the corner, wishing you hadn't come?

Ha...that is not gonna happen. We're not gonna let it...unless that's what you want. (This is a choose-your-own-adventure type of thing.

~ You are worthy ~

Plus those new friends you're calling strangers...not only do you have a desire to make in common. You also have the "I am worthy. Worthy of spending time and money on myself." mantra in common.

Oh and there will be really good food too, and yoga, and deep topics to explore, and expert instruction and maybe some walks or bike rides and lots and lots of laughter.


Hi, I’m Tina. 

My retreats & classes were born from a desire to connect, empower women and make together, with our hands. 

I was searching for

    • my tribe of makers
    • space in my life to immerse myself in my craft
    • connection

I love to share the skills that I find so empowering in my own life…clothing myself (at any size), cooking & preserving my own food, building my own home.  Working with my hands.  

I feel connected to life when I mindfully make things of beauty and utility.

I love how handwork carries your story and your love. It’s all of that magic that I want to share in our retreats.

I want you to have that magic too!
