We are headed back to Sunset, Texas! Time to pack your sewing gear and spend the weekend with your sewing buddies’ sew-cializing for a few days! We always have a good mix of quilters, garment sewers, and machine embroidery enthusiasts attending and it is wonderful learning, sharing ideas and seeing what everyone else is working on.

Here is a summary of the retreat details:
Thursday, February 6th – Sunday, February 9th
Sunset Retreat and Quilt Shop in Sunset, TX, just a little more than 1 hour northwest of Dallas
• Check in at 3 PM and check out at 1 PM
• 2-night overnight stay, 3-night overnight stay or daytime only options available
• Limited to 20 people overnight to be sure no one has to room with more than 1 person** See Below
• All food included, plus unlimited tea, coffee, water
• Cutting stations, ironing table, ergonomic chairs, surge protectors provided
• Quilt Shop on site is open 7×24 just in case you forgot something!
• Same price for ASG members and non-members this year so bring a friend!
• **Majority of rooms have the ability to sleep 5. If you want to have more than one other roommate you can put it on your reservation who you are rooming with and we will accommodate.

Last year we really had a great time and this place is sew beautiful! This facility has been designed specifically to cater to groups like us! The sewing room is quite large and has 2 tables for each sewist. Breakfast is “serve yourself anytime” style on Friday and Saturday and buffet brunch on Sunday. Lunch and dinner will be at set times and will be served buffet style. And yes, special dietary needs can be accommodated. The sewing room has a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator so you can bring sodas or wine if you like.

All 10 lodging rooms are shared rooms with a bathroom in each room. We will be working to pair people according to bedtime “noise” preferences….

Of course, your retreat team is already dreaming up various things for the goody bags and some fun things to do together if you need a little break from your sewing. Plus there is a nice patio with a fire pit that would be a great spot to gather round the fire over a cup of coffee or glass of wine if the weather is our friend.

Speaking of weather, the retreat center has assured us they will work very hard to reschedule the retreat if we have one of those Texas ice storms. And if they can’t work anything out, they will offer a refund.
All that’s left now is to sign up and get ready to join the fun weekend sew-cializing! We can’t wait to see you there!

  1. I am an at-large member. My daughter lives in Plano; I live in Abilene. We had an ASG chapter here several years ago. That was when I joined and have been a member (albeit at large) since our chapter fizzled. I want to meet more people who sew. I am a member of the quilt guild here, but I really want to sew for myself again. Since I had three children (and I love to eat), I have changed shapes and I am having trouble fitting myself. I would love to meet people who have the same interests I do. My daughter lets me stay at her house when I am in Plano.

    1. We would love to have you come to any of our neighborhood group meetings! Designing Divas is a great one focusing on sewing your own clothes that fit.

    2. I really hope we get to meet you when you are in town visiting your daughter. We are a fun group and would love to get to know you!

      1. Thank you so much for your answer. I would love to meet people in Plano who are interested in the same things I am! I will try to let you know the next time I come to Plano and have the time.
        That is the problem. I usually have things planned; I use Holly’s house as a place with a bed–which I use. My daughter has three little girls and is the sole breadwinner. She works very hard and tries to do everything a stay=at-home mom does while holding down a full-time job.
