July Sewing Retreat

The next sewing retreat will be Friday, July 6 and Saturday, July 7 at the extension center. (Remember, there is no July general meeting.) Friday, we’ll be sewing from 9 am to 9 pm, Saturday, from 8 am to 4 pm. We’ll provide lunch and dinner on Friday, and lunch on Saturday. The cost is $15 for one day (either Friday or Saturday) or $25 for both days. There’s a registration form in the most recent newsletter, or you can pick one up at the June meeting.

As is usual with our retreats, you are encouraged to bring any project you’re interested in working on. We’ll have tables for your sewing machines, extension cords, irons and boards, and the extra tall and wide cutting tables.

We have a couple of special projects which you may or may not wish to participate in.

First, Becky and Betty will be bringing the felting supplies and patterns they picked up at Regionals last month, so everyone will have a chance to try needle felting.

Second, we’ll be making cute little drawstring bags out of fat quarters. Betty will bring the instructions. If you’d like to make one, you’ll need to bring a rotary cutter with large mat and large ruler, 2 fat quarters, about 1 1/2 yard cording or ribbon, a bodkin or safety pin for threading cording, a marking tool, and basic sewing supplies.
