Dawson Retreat's Seasonal Sewing Retreat

Easy - Medium Skill Level

Enjoy spending a weekend away from the city as you learn from one of the area's top quilters. You'll get to participate in 3 classes where you will be learning to create the below pictured pumpkins & table runner.

These make great gifts for friends and family, so be sure to bring extra fabric if you decide to do more than one! This project is very versatile and can be as simple or advanced as you want to make it. Our coach will be available to help you in customizing it during the retreat.
