Sewing Retreats Blog

Sew and Sew Retreats was brought to life by a few friends who loved to be creative and valued the opportunity to be creative together. The friends thought others might value the opportunity to be creative and learn together too, as well as enjoy a getaway - a sewing retreat with creative textile projects, where one can laugh, relax, create and sew.   


It was Lindaexperienced in embroidery, sewing, beading, art quilts and 'sew' much more, who got things started. She also has experience in teaching textile workshops, planning large events and traveling abroad. Her 30+ years in marketing and communications comes in handy too.


In addition, Linda has served on the Board of Directors at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts as the Director of Marketing. She also is an active member of their Adult Education Committee and the Membership Committee.
