We are a non-profit organization established in December 2009 by a group of people who had been attending the Vashon Island Sewing Retreats for 25 years. Our organization name comes from our theme song. Our main function is to sponsor and manage the Sewing Retreats held annually on Vashon Island in Washington State. Click here to learn more about these Sewing Retreats.
The purpose of the Stitching Girls Society is to promote interest in and perpetuation of sewing, garment making, quilt making and other needle and fiber arts skills; to provide inspiration, fellowship and educational opportunities through events, classes and sewing retreats; and to encourage and facilitate the donation of sewn articles to charitable organizations. To learn more about us, please see our About Us Page.
Membership is open to all who like to sew and who support our purpose and goals, regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religion. Annual Dues are $50. For more information, please see our Membership Page.
Come join us at one of our Vashon Island Sewing Retreats or other activities. For more information, please see our Activities Page.
We know that many of our Members are busy quilting and sewing items for others. From American Hero Quilts to hospital premee blankets & clothes. Others are sharing their sewing knowledge and enthusiasm by volunteer teaching in the schools. Annually we donate boxes of fabric and trims to Grannie's Attick on Vashon Island. Please tell us what you are doing.
One of our activities is to stay in touch with a Members only dialogue, where we share lots of interesting tid bits about our sewing rooms, our sewing projects, our favorite sewing tools, tips and shops. Several of our Members attended the 2010 and the 2011 Sewing & Stitchery Expos in Puyallup, Washington. Please see our Dialogues Page to read what they are reporting about it.
Stitching Girls Society is an education and fellowship exempt organization. We are volunteer managed and try to keep our event fees and costs as low as possible so more people can attend. If you would like to help us in our endeavor, please Donate what you can.
