Camp Sew & Sew: A weekly ‘creativity retreat’ for your busy life!
Learn to sew or just join us to create and play at ‘Camp Sew and Sew!’ this winter at Cottonweeds Quilt Shop’s new (huge) classroom, in Freeport (across from Buck’s Naked BBQ) on Rt. One. Camp Sew & Sew! will offer many fun projects and activities to try if you are looking for a new project or bring a project of your choosing and we will guide you! No project is “wrong”; if you prefer to knit or quilt then you should still join us to share your passion! It’s a wonderful place to restore your creative juices and/or just visit!
Camp Sew & Sew! is in session Tuesday mornings from 9:00 to 11:30 beginning Jan 25th to Mar 15th. The cost is $85 for the 8 week session but you can get a 20% discount off that price if you sign up by the 16th of January at Cottonweeds. Call your Camp Councelor, Susan Pennoyer (MWS High School parent) at 207-807-1815 FMI.
