ISBN 9781940655260 Handmade Getaway


Full Description

Throughout it all, we sew. Through friendships and fabric, quilters and sewists tell the stories of their lives through fabric and carving out time to sew is an essential part of a balanced life. Authors Jacqueline Sava and Karyn Valino started their sewing getaway as a single summer event but soon started planning quarterly events. In Handmade Getaway readers will learn how to organise a handmade getaway all of their own, creating lifelong friendships and cherished projects along the way. This book is a collection of 14 individual projects and 7 group activities that can be completed during the year in a series of planned sessions with friends. Organised by time, the projects are completed in sessions similar to quilting bees. Whether the getaway is for an afternoon or a week, the content is both practical and inspirational. The length of each dedicated sewing session dictates the tools and planning required for each project. From creating a budget and sharing resources to strategising short- and longer-term retreats, readers will learn how to plan and execute a successful sewing adventure and will want to plan the next one soon.
