There was lots of deciding over the weekend. The sewing room was strewn with patterns and fabric.
I was trying to decide how much time I had. Could I trace and tissue fit something new? Was it worthwhile to spend the time? How about morphing something new onto a tried-and-true pattern? All the possibilities were making my brain hurt (no small feat!)
Why all this patterned activity? Sewing Camp starts this Thursday! That’s right, I have found a Sewing Camp, sponsored by the local ASG chapter. While I know it will not replace my beloved Sew-In, I thought it worth a whirl. I shall pack my bags, and head off into the hills. No computer. No phone. No distractions.
I finally decided to use mostly tried-and-true (TNT) patterns. So, there are 2 pair of capris (Jalie), two woven shirts (Louise Cutting), 2 knit shirts (Hot Patterns and Style Arc) and enough extra fabric for one more knit shirt and a pair of jeans. Probably overkill, but it is 4 days of sewing!
Did I mention the retreat venue is haunted?
