Before I dive into the details, let me share the backstory. I have always loved attending sewing retreats with my mom and last year, I decided to host my very own called Sew Scrappy.

To say that I was a bit nervous would be an understatement but with the arrival of each attendee my butterflies quickly faded and we had a BLAST!! You can see a few snapshots and read all about the weekend here.

SEW SCRAPPY 2019 Details

What is Sew Scrappy? Sew Scrappy is sewing retreat focused on learning through fun, unique projects. The Sew Scrappy Retreat is hosted by The Sewing Loft and features projects and techniques to help you stitch through your scrap stash.

Where is Sew Scrappy hosted? In Concord, North Carolina at the Hilton Garden Inn. The Hilton is located at: 7831 Gateway Ln, Concord, NC 28027, United States. (A special block of rooms has been set aside for us, you can book directly here. )

When is the Sew Scrappy? October 4th (Friday,) 5th (Saturday,)  and 6th (Sunday,) 2019. *Registration begins at 10:30 am on Friday and the event wraps up at 2pm on Sunday.

What’s included with each ticket? All lectures, classes & projects, open sew time, and these meals: welcome lunch/mixer dinner on Friday, breakfast/lunch/ both Saturday and Sunday, as well as all snacks to keep you powered up to stitch the weekend away. Rotary cutters/mats and irons will be provided at every ironing station as well as design walls, and more goodies than you can shake a stick at!

What’s not included with each ticket? Hotel room, transportation, fabric/notions, and sewing machines.

Do I need to bring my own sewing machine? There are two options for sewing machines during the retreat. You may bring your own machine, OR rent a Baby Lock Jazz II. For $75, we will have a Jazz II ready and waiting for you when when you arrive. I personally have this machine in my studio. It offers a ton of speed/power and has ample space for quilting those monster projects. The best part, is no packing. This is a great option if you don’t want to fly with your machine or would like to try out the Jazz II.

How much does it cost? $445 per ticket but for the next week, you can purchase them on an early bird special rate of $395. (*Note, the early bird pricing is a limited time offer that ends midnight, May 13th.)

During Sew Scrappy

What skill level is required for the workshop? Beginners and Up!! The Sew Scrappy Retreat classes/workshops are designed to teach you the projects & techniques first hand. That said, you must be familiar with these basic sewing skills in order to keep up with the class: rotary cutting on a mat and how to use your sewing machine.

Grab your scraps and come join us for a weekend getaway filled with creativity, new friends, and plenty of new projects to keep your machine stitching for days! Sew Scrappy Retreat Tickets are now on Sale!

When are the lectures & workshops?  Each teacher has prepared something special just for you! In addition to surprise Make & Take’s throughout the weekend, Lee Monroe from May Chappell will be joining us on Saturday for an all out love affair with color. She will be sharing her best tips & tricks for working with our scraps and leave you wondering…. Why didn’t I think of that!

Plus, she has an extra special project planned for us that is perfect for using every color in the crayon box.

Will there be open sewing time? Yes! You’re welcome to sew in the morning after the room is opened, between classes, during meals and into the late evening hours! Really, we want you to make the most of your time here. So be sure to pack plenty of personal sewing projects, be prepared to raid your goodie bag or grab something new at the shop.

What do I need to bring with me? 3 months prior to the Sew Scrappy Retreat, you’ll be emailed a packing list to help keep you on track. Included will be any required fabrics & notions needed for class, details about the SWAP, challenges and more.

What happens if I forget something? Have no fear, we all understand things happen especially when traveling! I’ve teamed up with my favorite local shop We’re Sew Creative and they will have a pop up shop right next to us in the hotel. Honestly, I’ll warn you now, Jennifer brought so many goodies from the shop last year that folks needed extra bags to bring them home.

I have food allergies. Will there be meal options for me? Yes, prior to the Sew Scrappy Retreat, you will recieve an email to provide additional information so that we can notify the catering staff. **Advanced notice is needed so that we can make every effort to accommodate food sensitivity needs.

After Sew Scrappy

I loved using my Baby Lock Jazz II during the retreat, can I buy it? Absolutely! Sew Scrappy Retreat is a great opportunity to “test drive” a new sewing machine, and take advantage of special event pricing at the shop.

Will there be patterns provided for all the projects so I can remake the at home? You Bet! Patterns are included with your ticket for all attendees. Plus, we have some pretty amazing sponsors that are sending goodies your way…. again, I’m suggesting you save room in your travel bag. (hint, hint!!)

How can I stay connected with all my new friends after the retreat? Retreats are a great place to meet like minded friends and we want you to stay connected! Consider connecting on Instagram and using the hashtag #sewscrappyretreats to see all the fun photos taken during the retreat and pictures of the finished projects.

So call your sewing buddies, grab your scraps and let’s get ready to have some fun. Be sure to register today because space is limited!

  1. Just one question about the retreat. Is this refundable since it is so far in advance? I do not want to miss it, but if some issue arises I also don’t want to lose this much money.

    • Hello Debra,
      Thank you for asking. Unfortunately, Sew Scrappy Retreat tickets are not refundable but they are transferrable! If for some reason you can’t make it, you are welcome to sell your spot to someone else who would like to attend. If you choose to sell your ticket, please email me at Heather@thesewingloft.com to have your ticket transferred into the new attendee’s name.
