Still Magnolias - I Love a Retreat!!

I love a happy student!!

I recently taught for the Still Magnolia Saga Group in North Louisiana.

It was a lot of fun.

My Dress as  appeared in Sew Beautiful Magazine.
We were spending the weekend making Toddler Summer Dress.

The Still Magnolias know how to have fun!!  They go away for the weekend to a Retreat Center and Sew, sew, sew.  All weekend!

The room at this Retreat Center is nice and large.
We were at the Camp Harris Baptist Retreat Center in Mindon, Louisiana.

Everyone careful traced the tucks in the hem.

Here we are attaching Entredeux to fabric and rolling the fabric edge.
We spent some time figuring out the best foot to use on each machine for the Roll and Whip.
It can make all the difference.

Then, at meal time, we just moseyed over to the cafeteria and ate a meal that was waiting and ready for us.  We all loved this part.  Ready and Waiting.  No cooking, no deciding, no cleaning up.

Ready and Waiting!

Then it was back to sewing and attaching the lace to entredeux.

By the end of our weekend, most ladies had their dresses very near complete!

Still Magnolias ……more to come!
