Previous Mini Retreats
Stitching Girls Society offers twice-yearly Sewing Retreats at Camp Burton on Vashon Island, Washington. The September Retreat offers a sewing vacation with classes and friendship. The Spring Mini offers fun and shared inspiration in a ‘Do Your Own Thing!’ structure.
Our retreats are open to all who like to sew. We are a welcoming community for our new and returning Retreaters.
Camp Burton provides a peaceful and tranquil setting to retreat from the cares of everyday life. It is a wonderful time for you to create, discovering new ideas within the quiet of the nature around you and from the shared knowledge and excitement of people who like doing what you like to do. We offer classes in sewing, quilting and, new this year, knitting, as well as space to ‘Do Your Own Thing’.
Vashon Island Sewing Retreats are all about sewing and sharing: sewing classes, sewing for fun; sharing ideas, sharing projects, sharing inspiration, sharing friendship and good times from sun up to sun down with no interruptions, wonderful food, beautiful scenery, and all the time in the world to sew.
Retreaters slept in cozy cabins nestled in the fir forest or the new Retreat Center, hiked the pebbled paths to the lodges, or around the peninsula loop trail, or down to the salt water beach, dined on the fabulous meals prepared especially for the Vashon Island Sewing Retreat.
