Sewing Retreats with Londa
Multi-Day Sewing Retreats are a perfect way to escape to jumpstart and refine your sewing skills.
You select whatever sewing/fitting/technique/design project(s) with which you desire my expert instruction and design guidance. Though creative knit garments are my specialty and up-cycle sewing is my current passion, I have years of experience in tailoring, fitting, design, figure flattery, color, and all sewing in general for any level. However, if it is quilting you need help with, I am NOT your gal.

"The weekend retreat at Patti’s Last Resort felt like a four day long, Christmas morning! To stay in a pleasant environment, surrounded by folks with exactly the same interests and a talented instructor who loves what she does — is a dream come true!
Londa has been sewing creatively for many years, and there’s nothing that stumps her. We arrived with wildly different fabric choices and needed help and advice for our own unique style, but Londa was right on top of everything. In the end, each of us went home with fashion-quality jackets that were stunning.
I love the retreat house idea for learning sewing techniques. Everyone can work at their own pace, and if you can’t sleep from sheer excitement, you can sneak out into the classroom and sew in your pajamas! There’s a full kitchen too. Granbury is a beautiful, historic town with many fine restaurants, but the weekend scheduled for this event happened to be a washout, weathwise. It really had no effect because we all were happy to stay in, use the in-house kitchen facilities and sew up our own storm.
Londa staged a trunk show the first morning and we were able to try on jackets and make design decisions. Throughout the weekend she demonstrated techniques and gave advise on products that might enhance our projects. Of course, she brought trunk loads of supplies, patterns, sweatshirts and kits. What fun!!"
