What is Tea & Stitches?

Tea & Stitches is a stitching experience! Held in beautiful coastal Florida, Jan’s retreat brings women who love stitching together for four happy days of stitching, sharing and learning.

Jan creates a brand new project for each retreat and brings variations to inspire attendees to use their own imaginations. The day retreats are welcoming weekends, offering stitching tips and techniques, stitching time, personal attention from Jan, daily teas, gifts, and more to provide an unforgettable experience.

Limited to 18 students, the retreats have been attended by women across the country. We extend a warm invitation for you to share and stitch with Jan!
