sewcation

Megan Avery, the founder of M Avery Designs Sewing Studio invites you to join her for a Sewing Retreat in the Catskills!

Mark your Calendars – Thursday January 26, 2017 – Sunday January 29, 2017

Join us this winter for a long weekend of sewing, relaxing, & making some new friends who love sewing as much as you do!  Unwind from the daily grind of normal life & take some time for yourself to work on all the unfinished sewing projects you’ve been meaning to tackle.  You’ll have almost 72 hours of uninterrupted sewing & ME time! The sewing retreat will take place in the wonderful natural setting Saugerties, NY, located in the gorgeous Catskill Mountains just 2.5 hours from NYC/Hoboken.

Where we’re staying:

The sewing retreat will be taking place at a big, beautiful country house set on 7 acres of land in the town of Saugerties NY. The town of Saugerties is in a wonderfully relaxed setting and is located in the Catskill Mountains, only 2.5 hours from NYC/Hoboken. The house we’ll be staying at is 20 minutes from the train station so you are able to take a train from Penn Station. We’d be more than happy to pick up and drop off anyone at the train station. The house has 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The house has a large open space for sewing on the first floor. The house also has a hot tub that guests are welcome to use anytime throughout the weekend. Retreat guests are welcome to hike/ski/explore/enjoy the 7 acres of nature that surrounds the house. 

We’d like to keep the group intimate so the retreat will be open to a maximum of 10 guests. If you are coming with a friend and want to share a room with your friend,  just let us know when you sign up. Otherwise we’ll assign you a room mate. Anyone who wishes to have a private room will  have to purchase multiple spots.

What’s included:

  • Three nights stay in our beautiful accommodations in Saugerties, NY.
  • Two and a 1/2 days of uninterrupted “me” time in a gorgeous country setting.
  • Ample space for sewing, cutting, crafting, reading, relaxing, hiking, laughing & just about anything you’d like to do during the weekend.
  • Megan’s personalized sewing assistance & fit expertise with any sewing project you’re working on over the weekend.
  • Breakfast on Friday, Saturday & Sunday including a selection of smoothies, quiche, yogurt, granola, fruit, pastries, toast, bagels & more.
  • Lunch on Friday & Saturday including homemade soup, sandwiches, salads & more.
  • Additional refreshments to keep us fortified while sewing.
  • A wonderful time time making beautiful things & meeting new people in a gorgeous country setting.

You are more than welcome to bring additional snacks and beverages of your choice.

We’ll head into town on Friday & Saturday night for a group dinners. Each participant is expected to pay for the cost of their own dinner & drinks for both days.

The main area of the house is big and open and gives us plenty of room for sewing machine tables, design & cutting space. BYO sewing machine & sewing tools. Sewing machines (and all related tools) can be rented from M Avery Designs for the weekend for $50.

Here is what past M Avery Designs Sewing Retreat participants had to say:

“It was great to meet up beforehand especially since it was the first one! I enjoyed the laid back nature of activities, location was beautiful, I liked that you had the different types of fabric. That Megan and Lauren (instructors on the retreat) were available for questions / support was of the greatest value to me. I think encouraging retreat participants to challenge themselves with skills they don’t know is ideal. I certainly was a bit nervous about embarking on pants on my own and know I would have gotten frustrated had I not had the support of the instructors there.”

“Both instructors were very helpful & really nice people!!  I just wish I got further along w one of my projects (no ones fault but my own) wish I was more motivated to get help on certain things. So sweet & thoughtful of Megan to give necklaces & cards. I loved the retreat & I’m so glad that I went!!!”

“Amazing location and it definitely fostered a nice sense of community and relaxation.”
