Sewing camp

Hello - apologies for the delay in posting. I think I've just about recovered from my 5 days quilting at Sewing Camp. Boy was it hot. Working all day in a room with 8 other women, their machines and about 5 irons made it an even hotter experience. I think we all had a permanent glow. The nights were really hot too - but only 7 of us in our dorm.
I had a great time and I thought I'd start to share some of my photos with you. The batch above are examples of the table and bed runners made during our stay - on our last day we all stand up and 'show and tell' what we've made over the 5 days.
It was great to spend the time with such a great group of women in our sewing room. You learn such alot from each other. I've managed to see an example of the results from Sandra Meech's class which has helped me loads in getting my stuff ready for her class at the Bramble Patch in October. You also get to see what other machines people have and what they like / dislike about them. Also other bits of kit and lots of tips. Plus lots of food and drink and chatting. I really did have a great time. I'll be posting up the stuff I made later next week - but I'll post everyone elses first. Hopefully you'll see how different things look made from the same pattern in different materials.
Well - more stuff to do.

sewing camps are always sooo much fun -- my bisggest problem is I'm "scrap lady" and end up bringing home more then I took!
