April Club & Mini Retreat

On the first Saturday morning of the month my sewing machine dealer, Missouri Sewing Machine Co.” hosts “Club.” It is not limited to quilting so I get to see a variety of sewing projects that provide plenty of inspiration and motivation to try new things. I am always amazed at what others can do.

One and a half years ago, as the summer was ending, one member suggested that we as a group do “mini” retreats to help combat the coming winter blues. Winter of 2011/2012 came and went and as a group we decided to continue our “retreats.” This is a very informal group and the projects vary. Usually we try to do a project that can be completed in 2 hours or be finished with little left to do at home.

This month I had a group that was willing to be my pattern testers for a quilt pattern that I have put out online at Craftsy.

Here are some of the pictures from the afternoon:

I didn’t think to bring my camera, so I took pictures with my phone until the battery died. 🙁

Thank you, Ladies for testing out my pattern.

More on the pattern in the next post.

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
