Welcome to the
Sewing Hope Retreat
Annual Sewing Hope Retreat
We would love to have you join us for our annual Sewing Retreat, held in late October. This is a ladies fundraiser with proceeds going directly towards purchasing supplies and sewing machines for Sewing Hope, which is a program that empowers women to sew in Peru. The retreat is organized and run totally by volunteers. Enjoy our 2-1/2 day event which includes overnight accommodation, classes taught by talented teachers, mystery classes, a silent auction, awesome meals and snacks as well as a show and tell evening. This event is held at Hidden Acres Mennonite Church Camp near New Hamburg. We welcome you to join us as a new attendee, or rejoin us to renew acquaintances you have made over the past 10+ years of our retreats.
