Fun Weekend of Sewing Information

We went to Long Beach, CA for the ETA Seminar--how fun! I made a dressform in a Jan Bones workshop on Friday and that was a real learning experience! Being wrapped in wet paper tape to get a form that really IS my size was a trying but worthwhile experience. Saturday and Sunday I attended lots of sessions with wonderful, sharing presenters like Lila Messinger, Cynthia Guffey, Peggy Sagers, etc. Entertaining, informational, and fun! It was a great three days. Only drawback for me was that my knee had a tough time with all of the sitting. I do OK with walking, not so well with sitting or standing. It will improve with time!

Now we are back home and I need to get my ideas into projects and then made! It seems like we have been on the move more than at home. That's not a bad thing, we enjoy travel. We have one more trip planned to a Loes Hinse sewing seminar for me and days of unscheduled photo shoots of DH. Not a bad way for either of us to spend our retirement days :>)

I will get some things made and photos posted this week.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend one's time! I love seminars and just went to American Sewing Expo a couple of weeks ago. Great learning experience, and you are right--it IS a nice way to spend your retirement time.
