I had an amazing opportunity to visit the women of Weekend Sewing & even though my time was limited & both visits were squished in between working, bachelorette parties & play dates with Franco, I am so glad that I made the drive. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the event, for the past couple of summers Heather Ross has hosted a sewing retreat at the Blueberry Hill Inn in Goshen, Vermont where roughly 14 lucky sewists get the opportunity to relax, eat good food & sew all weekend with Heather & co-hosts Liesl Gibson of Oliver + S and Denyse Schmidt. Lucky ladies! The atmosphere was perfect & I had a fabulous time. The first weekend I was invited to join the group for dinner at the inn. Naturally I dragged Ashley. Heather & Liesl are both lovely, outgoing, creative women & we all hit it off right away. I was delighted to see Jessica there who was the token Vermonter of the sewing group & she had learned how to sew at nido so that was pretty cool. Ashley showed her quilts & everyone was in awe. The girl is talented! The following weekend Ashley & I were invited back down to attend Denyse Schmidt’s patchwork purse workshop. Another FABULOUS time with the Weekend Sewing ladies & this time I had the opportunity to meet Denyse who is absolutely beautiful & her work is just so inspiring! Very cool. Oh & some exciting news for all you locals–Heather & I talked about the possibility of doing a little workshop at nido at some point so I’ll keep you guys posted!
