Schweinfurth Fall Retreat 2020

Fiber artists of all kinds are invited to join us for a weekend of creativity at our biannual retreat. You will have full access to both of our spacious studios: our sewing studio and our dye/wet studio. Participants get a least 1 full table each and 2 design walls. Just bring yourself and your work!

Our sewing studio has lots of natural light, design walls, and space to spread out for large projects. Extra large tables are set up together for pin-basting quilts. The sewing studio also has various cutting mats, rotary cutters, rulers, a designated cutting area, irons and ironing boards, a Handi-Quilter Sweet Sixteen sit down longarm machine, sergers, and Bernina sewing machines. (To use the Berninas for the entire retreat, a small maintenance fee is required.)

The dye studio is perfect for large batch dyeing, felting, and all other types of messy projects. It also has 2 sets of industrial sinks with sprayers, a mop sink, 2 washers, 2 dryers, indoor clothes line for hanging wet work, 5 gallon buckets, and portable burners.

All are welcome whether you are quietly sitting and stitching or trying to accomplish a huge project. Get the creative juices flowing and make something with us.
