Mending Beautifully and Sew Like a Girl

have come together to create


A weekend to explore with needle, thread and stories


August 6-8, 2021 in Bath, Maine


Join Elizabeth and Kimberly for a weekend of creating in the coastal community of Bath, Maine.

GatHER  with like minded women to create and connect.

We will be making Story Cloths, a beginning point to explore your personal narrative on linen with tiny stitches.  We will guide you through a weekend of learning embroidery techniques to use in creating your Story Cloth which can then be made into an origami bag or a wrap to be used on a chilly summer night.

Beginning on Friday evening with a light meal and introduction, we will spend the next couple of days working with needle and thread on tissue linen, walking around our waterfront community to gatHER  inspiration, and enjoying wholesome and delicious meals in a wonderful refurbished Victorian right in the heart of Bath, ME.

Above all, we want to make sure you feel refreshed when you leave. Through retreat, creative practice, good food, and new connections, there will be a wonderful balance of inspiration, rest and rejuvenation.
