Does it sound crazy that Mary and I meet halfway between our houses and sew all weekend in a hotel room? Maybe it does to someone that doesn't quilt, but for us it makes sense. We each drive a couple hours, so it's not a horribly long distance to go.
I brought Clarice, my 301 Singer machine to sew on and Mary brought Olga, her Featherweight. I will confess that I also brought Grace, my Featherweight, but she didn't come out of her case. Last time we did this I fiddled around with something on the machine and lost valuable sewing time. So this time I just brought two machines in case that happened again. I would just switch machines and keep on sewing! Luckily, it did not happen, so all was good.
The room we rented was very spacious. It was considered a suite, so there was an extra area that we set up to sew in. I brought my little table. It worked out just fine.
