We had a grand time. Sandra prepared a wonderful meal for us. We ate, drank and laughed the night away.
Sandra had all the ladies try on her beautiful custom-made fascinator.
Before the end of class on Friday, Sandra asked us to choose three important characteristics that we valued in a true friend. This one simple question was the start of a lively conversation about friendships and relationships. Needless to say, time went by very quickly. After the party Dan drove us back to the hotel for a good night's rest.
Everyone had a great time.
Other Activities -
On Friday, a few of us decided to take a trip to Fisherman's Wharf to do a little shopping and to grab a bite to eat before going to Beach Blanket Babylon. BTW- Sandra got tickets for everyone to go to show. It was so funny and the singing was great.
This ends my reviews for the retreat. It was a fantastic week. I came away with a lot of knowledge and motivation to try a few new techniques. I know that some want to ask which workshop I liked better, but I can not give a straightforward answer. They complement one another. The Palmer/Pletsch workshop was primarily about fitting. This workshop was a little bit of everything. The lesson about fit I learned from Sandra, helped me to further refine techniques I learned with Palmer/Pletsch.
One of the things on my to do list, is to post reviews on Sandra Betzina's books. Another is to see what everyone else is doing. I miss being able to blog. Finally, I want to talk about the Haute Couture Club Fashion Show 2013. The theme is "Elements of Glam" and is centered around the "elements" of the earth.
So in the meantime, Happy Sewing!
