The Sewing Studio

Available to you 24 hours a day during your stay the studio is a short staircase away from the Suite. The Sewing Studio is complete with a large workspace to accommodate a max of 5 sewers while still having room to spread out your projects.

The cutting station comes equipped with various rulers and rotary cutters for you to use.  There is also an ironing station and a design wall to help you plan out your projects.


Your home away from home

Our 3 bedroom suite offers you peace and quiet and all the amenities of home . Three bedrooms offer Queen sized beds, and there is two Sofa-sleeper beds in the living room. All bed linens and towels are provided.

The suite has a cozy living room/dining space to relax in as well as a full kitchen if you want to prepare your own meals. There is also a full bathroom with shower/tub. The covered porch is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature. Listen for the  frogs from the local pond and if you listen closely enough you can often hear the wings flapping of the birds flying overhead. Welcome to Paradise!

Your Hosts

You might recognize Stephanie as the owner of Stitch and Bobbin Quilt Store in North Vancouver, BC.

Stephanie and her family moved to Gibsons, BC in December of 2018 looking to get away from the big city and to enjoy everything that the Sunshine Coast has to offer. One of the goals of this move was to be able to offer retreat getaways to her Quilty friends and customers and thus the renovations took place and Run Away Bobbin was created.
