Last Saturday I hosted my Winter Sewing Day. It went way too fast – it felt like I blinked and the day was over! Time flies when you are having fun. Cliched, but SO TRUE. Time also flies and not much sewing gets done when you talk-talk-talk. Guilty.
There were twelve (technically 13 if you include baby Ted!) of us all up, we had a few people unable to make it at the last minute due to illness and partners working – waaah hope you ladies can make it to the next one! It actually turned out to be a great number, we all had lots of space to spread out our projects.
There were lots of different projects on the go – Suz was working on a quilt and also cut out an Oliver & S dress, Emma and Lyndelle were both making Noodlehead bags, Lyndall was making a huge stack of pink paper pieced blocks, Jane made a ninja softie, Louise was working on some place mats for her kitchen, Luna made some critter softies, Fiona made some waterproof pants and a pinafore for her daughter and I made my July Modern Quilt Along block and pattern tested a vintage style dress.
Abby was knitting, she couldn’t bring along all her sewing gear because she brought along a special guest! Ted is only 4 weeks old so he snoozed while we sewed.
The venue was GJs Discount Fabrics in Brunswick. They have an upstairs room set up for sewing groups and it’s a great space. Lots of tables, a high cutting bench and irons and ironing boards all around the room.
