3rd Annual Sewing Retreat! - 2019
Posted by Myra Roberts on
Our 3rd Annual Sewing Retreat was a success! We had a new venue and it was fantastic! Garden City, Utah was the perfect place to host our retreat in October. It was just a little bit cold and perfect weather to stay in and sew all the things! We had 22 ladies join us this year and there was so much laughter, sewing and new friendships made! We can't even wait until next year to come back!
Janette and I arrived the day before to set up everything and to get a little sewing done before everyone showed up. We were so excited to welcome all the ladies!
We had so much fun exchanging our favorite things and playing the funniest game learning to much about each other and crazy things that we've done in the past! Our stomachs and cheeks hurt from laughing!
I also taught them so pretty cool techniques with making those half square triangles crazy fast. Using a Bloc Loc Ruler makes every project more accurate and trimming up those half square triangles isn't so bad after all!
One of our projects we worked on was making pillow covers using the Ten Sisters magic interfacing. You can make a whole pillow front with no pinning at all and all your seams turn out picture perfect! It was so fun seeing what the ladies came up with using their mini charm packs. So much creativity!
We had so many giveaways this year. It's always exciting to see their faces when they win amazing stuff like this darling pink iron from Oliso!
Here are some finished quilt tops that were made by our amazing ladies!
Can't even wait until next year! We love spending four days with these wonderful ladies. How lucky are we that they want to spend it with us too?! Stay tuned for information on our next retreat coming in September 2020!
