Sewing Retreat Venture Valley

This year's sew group retreat was at Venture Valley Conference Center near Corralitos, California in the redwoods. Three nights spending time with friends, sharing ideas, techniques, fitting, laughing, and sharing meals together was a welcome break. Here are a few images I captured from the weekend. This group of friends has been getting together for over twenty years. I have learned so much from these talented woman. Smocking and handwork was my focus.

Ironed and interfaced test piece

Sitting by the pool doing handwork is so relaxing

Wonderful natural light
