More about the Carlisle Inn in Sarasota: Construction of this hotel was completed in May 2018. They offer suites and deluxe rooms in addition to the standard rooms which are part of this Sewing Retreat Package. The standard double rooms (meaning 2 queen beds per room) and standard king bed rooms have: mini fridge, separate dressing/sink area, flat screen cable TV, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, table and chairs. Most standard rooms have walk in showers, a few queens have shower/tub combos. Kings have a sleeper sofa. The hotel offers banquet and conference rooms for groups up to 500 people.

This year's 4-H Sewing Camp was our 9th summer of partnership with 4-H. We had fun teaching and the kids had fun learning how to sew. They made 39 Christmas Stockings for our deployed military Blue Star Moms project.

What is an NG? Its a Neighborhood Group!  

We are real people meeting in real buildings to sew real things. And we have a blast. So take a moment to step away from the world of virtual reality and mosey on down to your nearest NG. Better yet, bring a friend with you!
