I went away with my girlfriend MaryBeth this past weekend for our own version of "Sewing by the Sea". MaryBeth and I started taking sewing class together about a year ago. The one instructor told us about Sewing by the Sea in Ocean City Maryland. It is held at one of the hotel's from Sun to Thurs. Well, going during the week was not good for us so we decided to make our own sewing by the sea. MaryBeth's grandparents have an oceanfront beach house in Brigantine, NJ. So, we packed up our sewing stuff and set out to sew by the sea. We arrived late Friday night and set up our stuff. Saturday we sewed from 10 am until 2:30pm just stopping to go out to dinner. I made 3 skirts and a tote bag. I also embroidered several items. MaryBeth made 3 tote bags, 2 pillowcases, and 3 change purses. Sunday we got up and packed our stuff and went out to breakfast and then came home. We had a blast. It may sound boring to some(like my husband, who laughed and said..."Have a blast girls") but we had a really good time.
We are already looking forward to next time!
