Spring Fling Sewing Retreat at Carriage Corners


At the end of my Christmas Vacay post, I mentioned that Gaylen will be sponsoring a Sewing Retreat at Carriage Corners the weekend of March 24-26, 2017. Also that I would be there to work with you on your sewing challenges, developing a TNT, and how to take a pattern and see design changes. Gaylen and I will also help anyone that wants to take a full set of measurements using Cynthia Guffy's chart.  

Some information about the weekend ~

Friday, March 24th ~ 
Arrive by 10am. Then there will be a shopping trip to Fabric Mart where Gaylen will provide transportation so that we can travel as a group. Lunch at a local restaurant. Back to the Inn to set up your sewing area and a wine & cheese get together at the local yarn shop. Dinner on your own and free sewing time after that.

Saturday, March 25th ~
Sew all day - lunch and dinner provided

Sunday, March 26th ~
Check out of your room by 11am but sew until 5pm.

For the particulars on how to register for the weekend, costs and additional information, it's available on Gaylen's blog.

I hope you'll come out and spend the weekend sewing with us! I'd love to meet everyone and spend some quality time shopping at Fabric Mart with you!

    1. sosome - Cynthia published a list of about 35/40 measurements you should take in one of her books. It's the measurements I take and keep posted in the sewing cave. It makes flat measuring a pattern so much simplier.

  8. Do you still like your Janome 8900? I have one but when I quilt with it using a walking foot it skips stitches like crazy. Took it in and the dealer said I had to use the purple Janome needle. Got it and seems better but not real good. Also it's a size 14 needle and I don't always want that big of a needle with what I'm quilting. Anyone have these issues and what did you do?

    1. First - unknown do you have a name? And two, I don't quilt on my Janome 8900. I use mine for garment sewing and have written about my experiences using it that way. Hopefully someone else will notice your question and can answer it.
