My husband was a great sport. He got the trailer ready for travel and drove all the way. In addition, he was very patient about me sewing all week from 9:00 am-5:00 pm each day. He also delivered all my sewing supplies to the activity room where all of the classes and free sewing times were located. I love my little trailer, but I am glad we could all sew together in a larger space! See photo below. I fixed most of our meals in our outdoor clamshell kitchen, but we did go out to dinner a couple of times. We also went to a show one night. Branson is a fun place to be!
The photo of Celebrity Station shows less than half of the room. The Wagon Master, Debbie Davis was great! She reports that the planning took 12 months and that 40 sites were occupied by our group. A total of 45 quilters and 35 spouses attended. The RV Quilter who drove the farthest to join us lives in Canyon Lake California.
We also had three, six-hour workshops. The workshops were offered by
The photo below show two of the Randoms Stars sample quilts. Aren't they great? I really love the design!
I also took the T-Shirt Workshop. Sally brought several t-shirt quilts to show us. There are three examples below.
I found her discussion of multiple variations very interesting. We were able to design our own settings. I chose a variation of her simplified, attic window design.
Before the workshop, I cut all of my t-shirts apart as suggested. It was great fun choosing the t-shirts. As many of you know, I taught science at the high school and at the university level. I decided to make a quilt for me using some of the many science t-shirts that I had collected over the years. Here is list of the type of t-shirts I used.
Sally had a wonderful press at the workshop that we used to quickly iron the stabilizer onto the back of the t-shirts. My husband got me one for Mother's Day! I love it!
If you live near Tahlequah, Oklahoma and would like to make your own t-shirt quilt, join me for my T-Shirt Workshop on June 9, 2018! We are going to have a great time, so start selecting your t-shirts!
After the first workshop, we had a shop hop! What fun! It was actually my first shop hop, believe it or not. It will not be my last!
We had a great time at the RV Quilters first Sew2gether Rally! In addition to the workshops and shop hop, there were goody bags, door prizes, refreshments, block drawings, campfire get togethers, and a pitch-in farewell dinner. If you quilt while you RV, join our RV Quilters Group Facebook page! We have over 17,000 members worldwide and are well led by our founder Joy Anderson.
We are planning new Sew2gethers in Moab, Utah and in North Carolina. I can't make the Moab Rally because it is right before Christmas Tree selling season, but I hope to make other rallies. The first one was great! Thank you, Debbie Davis, our Wagon Master!
