Sewing Camp Day 2: It's In The Bag! (Summer 2013)

On Day Two, the sewing campers declared that they wanted to circumvent the normal camp check in process - meeting in the gym - to come directly to the sewing room. "That uses up our sewing time!" they implored. I like the way these girls think!

After spending time wrapping up their pillows, we moved on to the "Carry My Stuff Bag". The creativity in the room reached a whole new level - hand drawn embellishments, multiple pockets, and flaps with buttons.  

Time simply flew today for the campers and myself. Listening to the quiet hum of concentration and little shared stories, I heard a post-snack sigh and quiet declaration "I wish I could stay here all day, sewing is just so relaxing!" 

I completely agree! You?
