Imagine… you and nine other fabulous sewists from the Victoria (YYJ) area, rent out a community hall and spend the day working on projects side-by-side! That’s what this Sewing Retreat is all about!
Ticket price is $40, which goes entirely to the rental of the space from 9am-5pm. This retreat is aimed at experienced sewists who are able to work independently on their projects. This is not a workshop or instructional time. You pick your own project and bring whatever you need for it. Feel free to ask for advice or fitting assistance, but you are responsible for your own decisions, your time management, and what you produce.
Our hall rental includes:
Bring your own:

Just a few ground rules:
I have to pay up front for the rental so I’m asking for folks to send their ticket payment to hold their spot. To make payment, please send an Interac e-transfer to me (email@example.com – no password required for deposits) with a note in the memo field to make sure I know who you are. Once I’ve got your payment and matched it to an RSVP, I will send an email confirming your spot.
If you cancel on the day of the event (or day before) due to illness, your ticket price will be carried forward to the next retreat day. You can also swap your spot with another sewist.
If you change your mind about coming or your life changes it for you, I need to make sure your seat is taken or paid for. I expect there to be lots of interest and potentially a waitlist for this so refunds shouldn’t be an issue. As soon as your spot is taken, I will send your money back.
However, if you cancel within 5 days of the event, chances are not good that I’ll be able to fill your spot. In that case, I will need to hold on to 50% of the ticket price ($20) unless/until someone jumps in and takes your spot.
