Hi everyone,

So many of you have wanted a Sure-Fit Designs Fit & Sew Retreat this year...I was planning on a hiatus...but the best laid plans of mice and men often change.
The good news is that there will now be one Retreat June 4 -9, 2016 in Eugene Oregon. This Retreat has been offered to my 'short-list' of interested attendees and currently there is now only (one) 1 student space remaining.

  • This is offered on a first come first serve basis. Meaning whoever calls (541 – 344-0422 – Oregon PST) and books the soonest will be able to attend.
  • This Retreat is limited to 5 students – you really do receive individualized attention. There is 1 space remaining.
  • Dates: Saturday June 4 through Thursday June 9, 2016. Time: 9 AM to 5 PM each day.
  • You would need to arrive by Friday June 3 if you’re flying in from out of town.
  • 6-day Retreat: Pants Fitting (day 1-3) and Bodice Fitting (day 4-6).
  • Cost: $899.00 (if you already have your Dress & Pants Kits, Stylus, Vellum and designing book Pants that Mix n Multiply). Otherwise, the cost is $999.00 if you need to purchase above mentioned kits & supplies.
  • Hotel: will cost $99.00/night + $10.95 tax. These suites have complete kitchen facilities – they do not provide breakfast.
