Last weekend, I had the pleasure of going to The Stash Bash! I’ve spent the whole week recovering and trying to catch up on sleep!
It was hosted by Chris aka Frecklemama. She is as much fun in person as she is online!! Love her! This awesome gift was made by Jill. And we all signed it!
I went with three of my super awesome sewing friends (they’re part of this group!) and we had the best time!! There were also some pretty amazing sponsors which led to pretty amazing swag bags and prizes throughout the weekend! Nicole, Tessa, me & Melissa!
As with all retreats, it’s really about the people!! So much talent! So much laughter!! So many new friends!!! I am already looking forward to seeing them next year!
I’ve been on sewing retreats before, but this was a totally different (completely awesome!) experience. First off, it’s at a camp! Anyone that’s ever heard me talk about camp knows I LOVE CAMP! Seriously, I once broke my leg on the first day of camp and stayed five more weeks (in a cast). I LOVE CAMP! This was a more cushy version with really nice bunks! This is me on my bunk!
And Tessa on her bunk!! So much quilty goodness in the bunk house!
Melissa braved the top bunk!
We sewed in the main lodge which had a GORGEOUS VIEW of the lake! So much natural light!! I want to sew in this room forever!
Our path through the woods!
We had a fat quarter swap!! These ladies are all so much fun! Jenny, Marcia & Laurel! And I got some really cute fabrics!!
There was a Designer Star Patchwork Threads sighting on Katie!!
I also made a Designer Star with Bonnie Christine Reminisce. This line has great colors!
Nicole worked on MY medallion!! I love it!!!
Beth from Stash Fabrics brought part of her store to the retreat! A great pop up shop!! She is the sweetest person too! Love her!
And she has an awesome new website, so make sure that you check it out. Seriously, she’s got the best taste. She’s transitioning from Etsy to her own site, so if you don’t see something you want, let her know. I bought Dreamin’ Vintage from her. I cannot wait to sew with this!!
And she made me this ADORABLE selvage needle case and more yummy fabric and snacks! That’s a text bundle!!
Tessa used my All Sewn Up pattern to make this for her secret agent. It’s so awesome and I wanted to steal it!!
Everything Tessa makes is just perfect!! LOVE!! The handmade tab…genius!
I also won this super awesome phone case/wallet! Love!!
