    Beattie, do you remember Premier Inn bedroom Festival of Quilts! We wouldn’t let the cleaners in until after we had gone!

    I remember Sazzie getting the threads off with parcel tape wrapped round her hand. I hadn’t seen that before and I think it’s a great tip!

    It was Wenznz who mentioned sewing machines –

    “… our sewing retreat is a residential weekend where we pack up all our sewing machines and equipment and sew uninterrupted for the weekend.”
    So that’s why I assumed we’d bring sewing machines

    A sewing retreat? At Abinger?

    Sounds marvellous. I’m still a solo pod and would love the company. Count me in!

    Well its an idea. We would have to find the appropriate venue. A friend of mine is organising a weekend sewing retreat in Oakham in a hotel that we use for button making. I am thinking of having a morsbagging room but still to be decided. I’ll keep you posted.

    I used to go to sewing summer schools ar Missenden Abbey in Bucks. They were great fun.

    Parcel tape is good for pet hairs too but a damp cloth works just as well!

    Oakham sounds good too. Do keep me posted. Seriously.

    I’m not sure if there’s a “private message” function on this forum, but if there is feel free to PM me.

    Just reporting back in to say we had our Sewing Retreat this past weekend, and I offered up Morsbag kits to all our participants as an after dinner activity on Saturday.
    Everyone was very keen on the idea, and in no time flat everyone had a bag of their own, and 12 bags were added to our pod tally!
    One participant has just joined my pod today, and another couple are keen to join a a little while.
    Success all round, I would say 🙂

    Brilliant work Wenznz! Your sewing retreat sounds lovely – and I’m so glad the morsbag idea caught on so well.

    Success all round, I agree! 😀
