For a few days this week I got to attend Sewing Camp with my granddaughter Caitlin. The Extension Office in York County has hosted the 2 week camp for about 25 year. Week one is for beginning sewers; week two for advanced. Last year Caitlin went to beginner camp and made a pair of shorts.
This year she made a top/dress with set in sleeves, gathers, and buttons. Local ladies come and partner with the girls to guide them through the process.
We went out to lunch after Sew Camp at a great place called Garden Gate. It had lots of interesting decor inside and out....And the food was yummy.
The girls have a fashion show on their last day. The Women's Club of Rock Hill hosts the event and provides the refreshments. The Chocolate Fountain was a big hit with all of us :)
I have to say the Extension Agent, Margie, and all the "Sewing Ladies" were so very welcoming to me. They invited me to lunch with them, we exchanged email addresses and they made me promise to come back next year. Caitlin wants to do it again so I am looking forward to us sewing together and sharing this fun experience. My BFF wants to do this here in our county so one day next year you may see a post about another Sewing Camp.
Meanwhile, what have you been up to this summer?
