2019 Retreats

Registration now open!

I’m awfully excited to share these two retreats and sincerely hope you’ll join us in connecting with other makers through light-filled handwork and open-hearted laughter. 


August 21st – 25th, 2019

A study in Slow Fashion –
surface design, natural dyes
and hand sewing

A 4 day retreat

Join us in Northern Michigan for a rustic retreat into nature.

Enjoy 4 days of hand sewing, natural dyes, surface design and nourishing our souls while making with our hands and engaging in conversations with like-minded folks.  We’ll gather on beautiful Black Squirrel Farm in Cheboygan, Michigan.


October 13th – 17th, 2019

Garment Making –
designing, drafting & sewing

with Cal Patch

A 4 day retreat

Come and learn from the veritable master of laid-back, accessible pattern drafting…Cal Patch.   On historic Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan.  Bring your bike (or your walking shoes)…as there are no cars on the island. Not to worry, a sweet little shift dress looks amazing on a bike.    Sure there will be drafting, designing, sewing, bike riding, horses, Lake Huron, historic sites and shops all within walking distance, but there will also be days of getting in the creative flow, deep conversations with like-minded makers, relaxing in the spa pool under the October sky, yoga/meditation, activities designed to build connection, nature hikes and time.  Time to retreat.  Time to just be.

If the idea of taking control of your wardrobe and how you dress yourself makes your heart pitter-patter, then this is the retreat for you.
