Jeni, Jacey, Deedee, Faith, Anna and I rented out a beautiful chalet in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin and spent our days sewing, shopping, eating, and dyeing fabric!
Indian Summer quilt while I was there. I'm usually not the best at actually sewing during retreats, but it felt good to get something done this time.
We ate a ton of really delicious food while we were there, including gigantic pretzels for dinner at The Grumpy Troll.The Coopers Tavern in downtown Madison and had the most delicious Belgian frites with garlic aioli.
We stopped at Jeni's apartment a few times to visit her bunny George. It was fun to see her cute apartment and her sewing room! We joked that it felt like we were stepping into her blog!
Back at the chalet, we tried out indigo dyeing for the first time. I only dyed a few things, but everyone's pieces were really successful. Here's my favorite of Jeni's pieces, which she made by tying rocks into the fabric before dyeing it. I made a little video of the reveal on IG which was kind of fun.
Overall, it was just a really relaxing and fun weekend. It's so nice to get together with friends! I'm very grateful to have all of these girls so close to me (and Jacey, who was willing to make the trip up from Texas!)

We didn't think to take photos at the chalet until it was all cleaned up, and at that point, Anna and Faith had already left. Thankfully Faith had taken a picture of all of us at The Sewcial Lounge!
By the end of the trip, we already decided that we'll be coming back again next year! I'm already looking forward to it :)
