Hello, everyone.  I’m a first-time poster here.  Been sewing on and off most of my life.  Mostly I sew clothing for myself since I’m a large person with less than satisfactory fit from ready-to-wear.  I also have a fabulous group of girl friends who get together and sew about once a month… we call it sewing camp.  It’s a very important part of my sewing life. 

Three years ago my husand and I retired and became fulltime RVers so I no longer attend sewing camp one day a month.  Now when I go  back home, we do a 4  or 5 day sewing camp and as others in the group retire, we hold sewing camps in different parts of the country when we are able.

I carry my sewing machine and small stash of fabric with me and I have removed the dinnette in our motorhome to create a sewing space.

I hope to learn and share with this group to keep my sewing focus going.

I look forward to “meeting” everyone.
