One of the things that I really like about Sew Camp is that you sew at your own pace and time. Since I roomed with an early riser, Kisha was downstairs early every morning getting her sewing in. It's also probably why she finished four garments during Camp!
Me, I'm a late riser and have to drag myself out of bed to make it on time to breakfast (served promptly at 8:30am) because I like to sew late into the night. I think there was an even mix of early & late risers at Camp this time!
Besides sewing, there were so many conversations about fitting, sewing tools & construction and life & politics. Some of the conversations were heavier in nature and some just made us laugh and laugh.
Here are a few pics of the fitting that occurred between campers:
Andrea discussing how to draft darts in patterns ~
Andrea fitting LaQuana's Ogden Cami to Gaylen ~
Cennetta fitting the Concord Tee to LaQuana ~
Cennetta checking LaQuana's shoulder seam ~
Bernice and Coralee sharing a technique ~
Also here's a link to Kisha teaching me the burrito method. Cause I've tried and tried to figure it out by reading the instructions and always got lost! Now both shirts made at Sew Camp have the yoke burrito rolled.
...and where was I? Ummm I really was being the social media director between sewing my own projects, of course! *LOL* I just wanted to share with you the camaraderie, the knowledge that's shared, the unlimited time to sew at your own pace, and the wonderful atmosphere of the B&B.
Which leads me to the schedule of the next Sew Camps at Carriage Corner.
There is one more CarriageCornerSewCamp Weekend scheduled for 2018 and the date is: Friday, September 14 through Sunday, September 16, 2018.
If you are unable to make that one, these are the dates for 2019:
March 29 – 31, 2019
June 20 – 24, 2019 – this one is 4.5 days
September 20 – 22, 2019
Some of the feedback that Gaylen received from this group of campers was that it could be a little longer. To accommodate that she added a June 2019 Sew Camp for 4.5 days. Honestly quite a few of us have already signed up for the 4 day June event and for this September also. I will be attending the September 2018 and June 2019 Sew Camp, I mean if you care! LOL!
If you’d like more information about Carriage Corner and the Sew Camp Weekends please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and Gaylen will add you to their mailing list. Or you can call or text Gaylen at 717-768-3059 or send her a direct message through Instagram with your email address.
See multiple ways to reach out or schedule a weekend at Sew Camp. Personally, I hope you will attend because it's a wonderful way to spend a weekend!
My next posts will be about shirts...lots and lots of shirts!
...as always more later!
