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.”
