Come sew with me at the beach…in Key West, Florida!

by Dana on May 15, 2014

On Monday I was talking about beach colors and our guest room.
And today I’m talking about the REAL beach, in the Florida Keys, and I want you to come sew with me at:

Yep!  It’s just as fabulous as it sounds: Sewing at a beach house.  With 20 other friends.  In these fantastic cottages, with yummy food, fun classes, great conversation, beach time, pool time, and of course sewing time!

Oh I’ve been excited to share this with you guys.
Sew: Beach is a small sewing retreat put on by Caroline of  Sew Can She and it’s happening in October.  She invited me to teach a class on one of my upcoming patters – The Sling Sack.  It’s the perfect bag to sling over your shoulder and head the market or the beach.  Oh, and it’s reversible.  Yay!

You can read more about the teachers here.  And check out the fantastic sponsors here: (yay swag bags!)

But the most important detail is that there are only 20 spots available!  And tickets go on sale on June 1st!  So get your internet fingers ready for the big day so you can snag a spot.
I’ll post another reminder as the day gets closer.

Now start dreaming about crystal blue water and fabric and we’ll talk soon….

If only I lived the right side of the pond I would so love to do this!

Oh my gosh! This is such a brilliant idea!

Are will-be-2-month old babies invited? :) It sounds like so much fun!

Hi Lisa! We can probably work that out. Please email me at and we’ll chat.

Can’t wait for the pattern for that bag! Love it! I’m not a beach person, but I do go camping with my mom and we take our sewing along. She makes quilts and I make bags. We get a lot of inspiration from being outside among nature. I bet you will get very inspired by the beach. Have fun and can’t wait to see pictures!

Man I do too! I’ve always wanted to go to Sydney :)…..and seriously you guys have the best weather. I often check it on my phone! :)

This sounds just about exactly perfect. How much are spots going for? (This is probably where my fantasy bubble is officially burst.)


13 Dana May 19, 2014 at 9:36 pm

I’m actually not sure yet. You’ll need to check on Sew Can She. But I’ll post about it once more here before they go on sale and I’ll probably know then. I hope you come!
