A Gathering Stitches: Upcoming Events

Our good friends at A Gathering of Stitches in Maine have a handful of retreats next year, many of which feature our beloved Creativebug instructors. A Gathering of Stitches is a maker space for fabric and textile artists which means if you have even a sliver of interest in quilting, embroidery, fabric dyeing, printing, or fashion sewing, they’ve got something you’ll really, really enjoy. Lean more about the organization and the lovely lady behind it here

If you’re interested, we strongly encourage you to check them out. Below is a list of upcoming events.

A Gathering of Stitches

Sherri Lynn Wood

April 30-May 1, 2015

Sherri Lynn Wood is coming to AGOS to teach two days of curves! This innovative improvisational quilter will lead two days of instruction and inspiration for working with curved seams. For many quilters, curves appear as mistakes. But in this workshop you can embrace sewing beyond straight lines, and make it work for you!


Slow Stitching Retreat

August 5-9, 2015

Would you like to slow down and spend some quality time with your stitching?  Maine is a beautiful place to turn down the volume, shut off the email, leave the phone in your room, and spend some time with a needle and thread.  Three world class sewists and makers: Carolyn Friedlander; Chawne Kimber; and Rebecca Ringquist will share their time, their stitches and their spirit with you for four days in Washington, ME, August of 2015.

Lauren Taylor (LLadybird)

September 24-27, 2015

Come spend a long weekend working through a sewing project of your choosing with sassy blogger Lauren Taylor of LLADYBIRD. She’s coming North to Maine from Nashville and we are thrilled (thrilled I tell you….) to be hosting her visit.  Lauren is going to spend four days in our studios working with a small group to focus on sharpening your sewing skills and working through fabric, pattern and construction issues to help you take a big leap forward in your personal sewing practice.
