For an activity that yields something meant to be seen and admired by many, sewing is a rather solitary endeavor. Sure, my kids may be running around downstairs while I’m working or my husband may be reading a book so we can at least be occupying the same space, but it’s not like we’re all involved in the same activity.
Today was my first foray into the world of sewing retreats and I finally get the appeal. I spent the day at the shop sewing in one of the classrooms along with three to six others and it was so much fun. It always fun to meet and talk to other people who sew but it’s different to spend hours working in the same room, swapping stories and showing off works in progress. I was the sole non-quilter and managed to finish a new school bag and bento box bag for Miss L, and start a cool new jacket for her that is going to take forever and an extra dose of patience.
If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend giving it a shot! Oh,and I also suggest heading over to A Month of Stuff to check out my interview over that way, as well as all the great posts from A Month of Holiday Crafts. Great stuff!
