15 weekend reflections.


The weekend sewing retreat in Atlanta was so amazing!  Spending time with friends, sewing, and shopping.  Chatting about sewing, fabric and blogging, learning more about each other, and eating lots of good food!  And of course, creating beautiful things.

I think it's safe to say we got a lot of sewing done this weekend!  I left yesterday feeling refreshed, happy, and inspired.  So many wonderful and creative people all in one house!  It was so nice to spend time with like-minded friends, each of us so different yet with so much in common.  More to come this week, including a stop at Whipstitch, dinner with a few special visitors, and some yummy recipes.
