Annual Sewing Retreat

Each year we have a sewing retreat.  It is 4 1/2 days of just sewing that is usually the early part of the year.   We have a large sewing room and each participant has a 1/2 table to set up their machine(s)

 Shared ironing stations & cutting area stations are provided. We Shop Hop our way down to San Juan Bautista and have lunch at a local restaurant in San Juan Bautista on the first day since our first meal is Dinner.  Lodging is a shared or private room.  To attend the retreat you must be a member of ASG.  If you want to attend join ASG.   If you are interested the sign ups go out mid year in our newsletter and you will need to join to receive our newsletter.
