The Sewing Vacation You Deserve!
February 10-12, 2017
Sewcial is the ultimate in sewing retreats where you will spend the weekend with your closest friends, new and old, focusing on what you love to do. Take some time for yourself and relax, have fun, and enjoy two full days learning from the best teachers in the sewing industry. Classes focusing on fashion sewing and techniques are on the agenda for this second annual event, but it won’t be strictly business. We have special banquet, entertainment, and social activities planned to make this the complete sewing vacation! Treat yourself by joining us in Novi, Michigan February 10-12, 2017 and you will go home empowered with new knowledge to make fashions that fit and flatter your body and enhance your lifestyle.
Bring your friends or come to meet new, but don’t hesitate to join us because the number of students will be limited to ensure an intimate, relaxing, and comprehensive experience.
