Camp Stitchalot: Fall 2014

 A Sewing Retreat Hosted by Pink Castle 


This week we are still talking about Camp Stitchalot! Camp Stitchalot is a sewing retreat in lovely Pleasant Lake, Michigan, hosted by Pink Castle Fabrics. Like camp it is time away from the stress of life, where you can focus on fun! But it is even better than camp, because you'll have real beds, and get to sew all day (and night, too, if you desire!)

 Camp Stitchalot Fall 2014

The Fall session of camp will be September 19 - 21, with an optional free sewing day on Thursday the 18th.  Meals are included starting at Friday dinner and going to Sunday breakfast. Also the inn has a full kitchen campers can use as desired. And lots of time and space for socializing. And lots of space for sewing!

The sewing room never closes so bring your own projects as well as the materials for the classes! We’ve had campers finish large quilts and entire summer wardrobes during their free sewing time...just be sure you bring enough projects to keep you going.
