I was lucky enough to attend another retreat with my 'Once a month sewing group'- the Fabric Hoarders. It was held near Otaki on the Kapiti Coast.

We had a smaller number than last time so we could have the fire on in the main lounge where we had the machines set up. That left good space in the other areas for irons, and cutting tables and most importantly the drinks and nibbles area.
I worked on my second quilt Bright Quilt and started a dress for a friends wedding.
Added in with the sewing was a some shopping at the local shops and lots of laughter with friends and its easy to see why this is one of my favorite things to do.
