|Three day sewing retreat at a lovely hotel and spa sponsored by the Connecticut ASG. Twenty seven women attended and we all got lots of personal attention from Linda of Sewing Workshop patterns and Louise (Cutting Line Design patterns). In addition to personal help, we had little group lessons, a trunk show, garment samples to try on, help with fitting issues, and wonderful fabric and patterns to buy. It was fascinating to see how different each pattern line looks made up depending on fabric choices and personal style. Louise and Linda are doing more of these workshops and retreats together. If you get a chance to go to one, by all means go - you will have a wonderful time and return home full of new ideas and renewed enthusiasm for garment sewing. A personal favorite moment was when one attendee reported that someone at the hotel asked why we were all touching eachother so often - people were feeling the fabric, of course.
