The Quilting

You have two options:

  1. Bring your UFO projects - either your own, or a paper pieced project that you have started in a previous class or retreat.  Get the help and motivation you need to get your project on track and finished.

  2. If you fancy an introduction to the somewhat different techniques of Jacqueline de Jonge, Anne will teach one of her brand new pattern - the Four Seasons Table Runner. You will learn a variety of techniques.  Anne will provide you will your pattern and beautiful fabrics for your project in your choice of colour way (cost to be confirmed). 

Or ... a combination of the above!  Even if you are not a beginner, you are welcome to get the kit, and work on that and/or your own project.


  • CDN $525 + GST, non resident.  Includes 4 lunches, coffee / tea / snacks throughout the day, teaching fees. 

  • Arrival at 9.30 am on 30th March and start sewing straight away - 4 days sewing!  Departure by 5 pm on 2nd April.

  • Beginners kit and pattern cost will be invoiced separately (price to be advised when I know what yardage is required).

  • Payment by instalments at NO EXTRA COST.  You decide how much and when you pay.  Payments by eTransfer ONLY please, or cheque if you are unable to do eTransfer.  PLEASE DO NOT SEND MONEY UNTIL YOU RECEIVE AN INVOICE.

COVID Procedure


Sew Peaceful recognizes that Covid-19 is, unfortunately, with us for good.  We all make a choice when we attend events in the full knowledge that we may contract Covid-19, despite observing hygiene protocol.  If you are sick prior to the retreat, please do not attend.  If you become sick during the retreat, and you test positive for Covid-19, we would ask that you isolate in your room.  We will ensure that you are comfortable, set up with your sewing machine, and bring meals to you unless you wish to check out of the retreat centre.  If you require medical services, we will help you in this respect.  Unfortunately, no refund will be available, and it is your choice as to whether you arrange your own health travel insurance to cover any expenses that you may occur from contracting Covid.



Sew Peaceful Retreat Cancellation Policy


Before booking with Sew Peaceful Quilting, please read the cancellation policy carefully!

All deposits are due when invoiced after registration, and are non-refundable, except in exceptional circumstances, to cover administrative costs.

For instalment payments, if your full payment is not received within 4 weeks of the due date (see your individual retreat information for this date), or we have not been contacted by you to arrange payment, you will forfeit your deposit and your spot in the retreat will be opened to the public. (This will only happen after repeated efforts have been made to contact you for payment, by email first and then finally by phone).  All payments up to this date are also non-refundable. 

Any cancellations by you will forfeit all of the paid fees to date, unless other arrangements are personally made with Sew Peaceful Quilting.  However, we understand that sometimes illness and tragedy occur, which may make it impossible for you to attend the retreat. We understand that there are circumstances beyond your control, but it also leaves us with a spot that we are unable to fill. Under these circumstances and at the sole discretion of Sew Peaceful Quilting, you may receive a full or partial credit against a future retreat or workshop (NOT valid for fabric or patterns) organized specifically by Sew Peaceful Quilting, but you will forfeit your original deposit amount. Our ability to transfer you will be subject to availability and we will only transfer your retreat sign up once. 

For cancellations within 8 weeks of the workshop, no refunds are available unless you are able to find a replacement, but you will forfeit your original deposit to cover administrative costs.
