Since 1985, our Sewing Retreats have been known as Vashon Island Sewing Retreats, which reflected our origins at Camp Burton on Vashon Island. In 2009, the Stitching Girls Society was formed to continue the already long tradition of educational and fun Sewing Retreats under nonprofit directorship. By 2018, we were no longer convening on Vashon Island, so we have changed the name to the Stitching Girls Sewing Retreats!
All our Retreats include sewing and fun, sharing ideas, sharing projects, sharing inspiration, sharing friendship. Good times from sun up to sun down with no interruptions, wonderful food, beautiful scenery and all the time in the world to sew!
Our Stitching Girls Sewing Retreats continue to be attended by the same enthusiastic and creative group of sewists as before and we are always welcoming new Retreaters and new Members. See more information about each Retreat below and on these pages.
