What is Sewcial Retreats?

We are part of Sunflower Stitcheries and Quilting we aim to host a crafting retreat where you can enjoy delving deeper into your projects whilst being surrounded by crafting friends. It is about community, enjoying your crafts, making progress on your projects and meeting other craft minded potential friends.

When is the next Sewcial Retreats events in 2024

We have reviewed the feedback from our April attendees. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, a new venue is always a challenge. Our goal is to make our retreats as wonderful and supportive as we can, and we have learned a few things which will make future retreats better for all.

Our next retreat is

  • October 4th-6th 2024

What is the cost and what is included?

To attend retreat the fee is $315pp early bird, $340pp from 1st July 2024. This allows you to attend the 2 1/2 days of the retreat, your morning and afternoon tea and lunch. You will have room to set up your machine, design walls will be available, pressing stations, cutting tables and help if desired if you are a little stuck on a project.

We will have the Early Bird price available until the 30th June 2024. Early bird rate is required to be paid in full at time of purchase. Use this link for booking for this option.

We will be offering a payment plan option as well, please choose this link if this is your preference.

What if I can’t attend both days?

We understand that there are times when a whole weekend crafting will be hard to orchestrate. We will be releasing part retreat tickets from 1st July 2024

Where is the Sewcial Retreat October event held?

We looked for a gorgeous venue and have decided to head a little further out of town to The Carrington Inn at Bungendore. You can visit their website here.

We were happy to see good natural light, extra lighting for evening, a large open room, gorgeous grounds to wander in, rooms nearby that looked good and we are told the beds are very comfy. An onsite chef to make our meals and look after our refuelling to get all the crafting achieved.

Can I bring my sewing machine?

Yes, you can, we are looking forward to a couple of days of major crafting progress for your projects.

We will have power set up for you, and a trolley to help bring in machines and other items if you need assistance.

We will have some irons, so no need to bring one.

where could you stay?

The Carrington Inn is offering a discount for retreatees who book to stay, please mention that you are coming for the Sewcial Retreats October event when you call to book

We suggest booking as early as possible if you think you would like to stay. Keeping in mind that there are events on in the area that will mean accomodation books up quickly, (cough) Floriade. Perhaps book a room and then you could cancel if that option is no longer required.

Your accomodation is entirely your choice, there are a number of options in the Bungendore area as well. You can also opt to sleep at home if you prefer, just be safe with the extra driving please. There is also the option to come with a friend and share a room.

We are looking forward to being away and surrounded by wonderful creative people and so we will be staying at The Carrington Inn.

Are food & drinks included in the fee?

Tea and coffee are included and available all day. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are included in your retreat fee, you will be responsible for your own breakfast. Rooms at The Carrington Inn have a kettle and small fridge and minimal crockery.  There are numerous cafes nearby.

When do we receive confirmation of our place on retreat?

You will receive an automated email confirmation at the time your retreat purchase is processed. Please check your junk/spam folder if this doesn’t appear soon after purchase. If you are booking a number of tickets, the purchaser only will receive a confirmation email when the purchase is processed. About 1 month before the retreat, watch for an email filled with details about the retreat, timings and any other news we need to share.
