About Sewing at the Beach...

       In January of 1994, the Stranded Smockers and Stitchers hosted their first Sewing at the Beach, a four day sewing workshop held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  Over the last twenty plus years, this annual event has grown to include pre-day classes, specialized machine and hand sewing classes, and a full selection of optional night classes. Due to popular demand, the 23nd annual Sewing at the Beach will offer an even wider variety of classes for every type of sewing enthusiast!

      Sewing at the Beach 2016 will run from Monday, January 11, through Saturday, January 16, 2016. Pre-day classes, both hand and machine will be offered on Monday, January 11 and Tuesday, January 12.   Classes are geared for all sewers, both novice and advanced, both hand and machine.  Classes start daily at 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Night classes start at 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

      Students will be able to choose from a selection of classes during the four day school. A student may take four days of all machine sewing, all hand sewing, or a combination.  Classes will be taught by Pam Mahshie,  Missy Billingsley, Gail Doane, Jan Kerton, Susie Gay, Maggie Bunch, Laura Jenkins Thompson, Sheryl Smith, Melissa Wells, Peggy Dilbone, Michele Simons, Beverly Clement, Kathy Dykstra, Margo Duke, Cindy Foose, Cookie Bahr, ,Since requests for classes are filled on a “first-come, first-served” basis, be sure to send your registration form in as soon as possible.

      Night classes will be held Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings when additional hand and machine techniques will be offered as optional 3-hour classes.

 

      Here are some of the other highlights planned for Sewing at the Beach 2016.   On Tuesday evening, there will be a teacher selling night.  Come and meet the teachers and purchase some of their great work.  A Market with vendors ranging from sewing machine dealers to specialty item retailers will officially run from Monday through Saturday and be held in the exhibition hall. Luncheons for all participants will be held Monday through Saturday.  On Saturday evening, there will be a Fashion Show of garments made by students and teachers followed by a Southern Buffet Banquet.  Other festivities will include Live Auction and Raffle items.

 

      Sewing at the Beach 2016 will be held at the beach-front Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort which offers plenty of classroom, vendor, and hospitality room space.  Each room is furnished with either two double beds or one king and is equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, blow dryer, iron, and ironing board.  The rate is $91.00 plus 12% tax based on double occupancy (extra $10.00 will be added to guestrooms rates per adult) or $151.00 plus 12% tax next door at the Royal Palms for a condo.   Check-in time is 4:00 pm and check-out time is 12:00 noon.  Be sure to request “SATB2016 RATE” when registering.   If desired, an “inside” room must be specified.  The cut-off date for the special rate is December 12, 2015.
