Stitch & Bitch weekend and sleepover
Next Weekend

Sewing weekend, open to all (and all skill levels), with crash space, at my place in Dumfries, VA.

Here's the deal. Come over to my place any time from 6:30 on Friday to Sunday afternoon. Stay as long or as short as you like. Bring a project (or several). It doesn't matter if it's something you can breeze through easily, something so challenging it's been sitting in the back of your closet for years, or that mending you never get around to.

Bring your sewing machine if you've got one (or two! we will have more people than machines). Here's the main idea: If you know what you're doing, come ready to help people out. If you don't know what you're doing, we'll help you. I'm happy to take on complete beginners and start you with a simple project. We'll be making at least one trip to the fabric store during the weekend for supplies.

If you're interesting in getting started with corsetry, I can start you on the pattern-making/mock-up process, but DON'T expect to get it all done in a weekend. I'm not an expert, but I'll do my best to share what I've been learning.

We'll socialize, we'll sew. We have crash space, and even a bed or two for the first couple of people. Scott has offered to make at least one meal for us, and last time we had waffles for breakfast. ^_^ The rest of the food we'll figure out as we go.

PLEASE RSVP. We'd like to know who/how many to expect, especially so Scott can feed us. Last time we ended up with a revolving door of sewers, and so had plenty of room for everyone. Just let us know when to expect you. We had a fabulous weekend last time, and I'm really looking forward to doing it again.

If you're coming, you don't know the way to my house, and directions haven't appeared in your in-box tonight, send me a note at [ljname]@livejournal.com.

Elkor and I are a "maybe" depending on how much we get done re: the bedroom and if I can find my kimono-pattern.
