Stitch Camp 2015 - The Campers

 
I'm back from another adventure, but find that I need to blog in order or I will forget :)
so that will be another story for another day...
 
One of the best parts of stitch camp is spending time with other stitchers.
I was so blessed to sit at the "Rock Star" table with these lovely ladies:

From left to right:
Linda Lautenschlager of Chessie and Me
Lisa from Maryland,
 (who I sat with at The Inspired Needle retreat with Plum Street Samplers last summer)
Pam from Illinois, who I've been taking classes with for years :)
Linda Danielson of Samplers Remembered
Tanya Brockmeyer of The Scarlett House
me
 
Wasn't I lucky to sit and visit with these Rock Stars for several days?!
 
And if that weren't enough...
 
 
I also was able to meet and visit with Theresa, Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives
and Pat.  I felt like I already knew these three buddies through Prim Stitchers Society on Facebook. Nan had been an online friend for years, but it is always so much nicer to meet someone in person :)

 
Now they aren't just online friends :)
 
 
And of course, Stacy Nash was there too, always fun to visit with.
 
Be sure to stop by Nan's blog here. She was smart and took table pictures of everyone there :)
 
Another fun part is show and tell.

 
Pam wore this lovely scarf that we all coveted - a gift from her pen pal in the UK.
 
 
Sherri wore her beautiful Stacy Nash necklace complete with darling charms.
(I need to dig mine out of my unfinished stash...)
 

 
Theresa's lovely finish of a Threadwork Primitives design -
both front and back - joining friends from Canada and the USA


 
Linda Danielson's finish of a lovely Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farms design.
A beautiful bracelet

 
with precious details.

 
Even the backside is gorgeous!

 
Linda also shared her wonderful antique needle threader helper!
I need to see if my Dad could create something similar :)

 
Here is a lovely finish of a Rebekah L. Smith design published in Early American Life magazine.

 
Isn't it sweet?!

 
The inside is gorgeous and useful!

 
I need to pull that magazine out ;)

 
And even more stunning finishes!

 
So much talent in one schoolroom!

 
We spent a lot of time oohing and aaahing!

 
And purchasing more patterns :)

 
Linda's beautiful sewing box.

 
And a stunning sampler designed by Tanya of The Scarlett House.
 
And yes there is still more fun to share...
 
I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws.
~Psalm 119:30
 
 
Blessings, Patti

It was such a fun camp! We have enjoyed many fun events together at CS! Love your pics! One little correction...I am an Iowa girl! Ha!
There was lots of eye candy to see with this group and you captured it. Thanks for the darling gift too!

Patti, I love all of the show and tell projects! Such a talented group of ladies! And I love Linda's sewing case! Where did she find that fabric, it's perfect?!? And, Stacy is such a sweet and talented designer and teacher! Thanks for sharing! Colleen ( former roomie from 2014 Boxwood and Berries)

Love to read your blog:) You do such beautiful work and I enjoy seeing the pics of your adventures. I would like to know what issue of Early American Life had the Rebekah Smith sewing book as I have recently discovered her wonderful work. Thanks!
