Weekend Sewing

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!

    You lucky, lucky girl! I have been dreaming and drooling over the Weekend Sewing Workshops for two years! I’m so happy that you got to go and experience it, and you’ll have to tell me all about it next time I’m in the shop! P.S. I will sign up NOW for a workshop with Heather Ross!
