Sew-N-Sewing Retreat 2020

Thursday, March 19th through Sunday March 22nd

The Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel

Portsmouth, New Hampshire,

It's time to get ready for the 2020 Diva Sewing Retreat at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, sponsored by Sew-N-Sew Fiber Arts, Inc. This year we return to Portsmouth to keep costs low and offer you the option to decide where, when and what you want to eat. You will have fun exploring downtown Portsmouth with great shops, restaurants and the Portsmouth Fabric Company quilt shop a short walk away.

This year, we are planning a cocktail hour Meet & Greet at 5:00pm Friday evening in the main bar lounge.  Looking forward to visiting.  Some appetizers will be available but you need to pay for your own beverages.  

  • Each hotel room has a very small refrigerator and coffee pot for your convenience.

  • The hotel has a nice restaurant and full bar with varied, healthy menus for all meals.

  • You can bring your own breakfast cereal and milk, salads from Panera or Trader .Joe's, whatever. Get together with friends to eat out for dinner - the choice is yours!

  • Double or Single occupancy hotel rooms.

  • Starbucks coffee is provided free in the hotel lobby until about 10:00 am.

  • Athletic room open daily.

  • Water and coffee will be provided in our sewing room from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Sewing Room: We are in the Prescott Room on the lower level near the gym and swimming pool. Prescott is accessible from the street level for easy move in and out. There are no assigned seats and tables are arranged in groups of four. You can select your own space and reserve spaces for your friends. There will be a table with two power outlets for each person. We can sew from Thursday at 1:00 pm until Sunday at 5:00 pm.
