It’s that time of the year again, we are having a sewing weekend! We loved the venue we went to last year so much that we went there again. We are spending 4 days in Canterbury with 9 sewing friends (10 on Saturday, Pauline, so sorry you can only make the one day). The group could have been a bit larger, we are sadly missing a few ladies who for various reasons could not make it this year (we MISS you ladies!!).
The house has ample space for >10 sewing machines and sergers, apart from the other practical things as two stoves, enough bedrooms etc. Yesterday we all arrrived and today we were up early and started sewing, pattern tracing, unpicking a loved garment to re-create it etc. There is no general plan, we just work on that what we want to do or want help with. No worries about at which time the rest of the family comes home, shopping, laundry and other obligations. Just the fun of sewing together, helping each other, talking about all things sewing related as well as other subjects that come up.
It’s wet weather, which adds to the good feeling of sewing inside the house.
A little impression. I do hope to show a few finished projects later. And will have a few pictures of my muslin and a dress I finished last week but have not blogged about because the lack of photos.
In the evening, machines not yet working, but ready to start.
Inspiration all over the place, this is only a very little bit of all we brought in.
I’m trying on a top made by Joana, definitely copying it. She’s wearing a StyleArc top.
This is what I’m working on, details later.
