2020 GRASG Sewing Retreat

Update, July 10, 2020:

Our 2020 GRASG annual sewing retreat has been cancelled. Due to the current unknown situation regarding theCOVID-19 virus, it is necessary to cancel this year's retreat. It's a decision that certainly was hard for us to make, but we feel it's the right choice at this time.


A full refund will be made to those whom have already paid for this years retreat. 


Note: If you made reservations for the Thursday before, you will have to contact Group Hospitality at the Bluegate Garden Inn to cancel your reservation. We only cancelled the reservations that GRASG made. Their telephone number is: 800-545-4725.


On the positive side ... save the dates for future GRASG sewing retreats:

  • 2021: October 22-24
  • 2022: October 14-16

Thank you for your understanding,

Barb M. and Nancy B.
