Mended Hearts Sewing Retreats

You asked so Mended Hearts Quilting added more retreat dates. The times for the sewing retreats are on Friday (9:00 am – 9:00 pm) and on Saturday (9:00 am – 4:00 pm).  You may purchase an extra day if you wish to have a 3 day retreat.  The extra day would fall on Thursday and hours would be 9 am - 6 pm at a cost of $25 (no meals included).  Call the shop to be added for the extra day.

  • YOU BRING: Sewing machine, supplies, your favorite drink (please no cups without lids) and snacks if you wish. Work on your own projects while enjoying the company of other quilters.
  • WE PROVIDE:  3 Meals: lunch and supper on Friday; lunch on Saturday. Irons, ironing stations, cutting stations, extension cords, trash bags, tables and chairs.  Refrigerator, stove and microwave. Coffee, water and soda.  Custodial services.
