Quilts

Just purchased our first RV camper trailer, Forest River Grey Wolf. Will be heading for Amish country in Berlin, OH. Any quilters out there who would be willing to share RV experiences?

Quilts

We will be taking our travel trailer to an RV park in Berlin, OH on May 28th. First outing with our new Cherokee Grey Wolf. Excited to be on the road and to visit Millersburg, OH.

I believe that they may be many quilters on the road. My wife is one who would not travel without her "Feather weight" and a project. As a matter of fact she is currently in the trailer sewing in Milan, OH.

If, by chance, you're planning to attend the rally at Goshen (starting this Sunday!), my wife Margaret (who is an avid quilter) will be hosting a workshop to discuss "Sewing and Quilting In Your Rolling Home." Hope you can make it!

Years ago, when the young'uns went to bed early I did tons of sewing. I drafted graphs for every quilt pattern I could find, and cross stitched them onto 14 count cross stitch fabric squares. I've said that eventually I'll work those into a quilt. (sigh) I have 'em sealed in a vacuum bag so they don't yellow with age.

I even made my ex a fully tailored tuxedo, full lining, bound buttonholes and all. Again, that was when my first son was tiny and slept a lot.

In high school I made every thing I wore. Mom had a huge box of fabric in a closet, and a drawer full of thread, buttons and zippers of every color imaginable. If I wanted something new I simply went to that big box, grabbed some fabric, got the buttons or zipper, and thread, then went to another huge drawer where all the patterns were stored. Two days later I had a new outfit.

Those were the days. Still have my Singer Golden Touch N Sew. Still got all the wheel thingies (can't remember what they're called) that you use for darning and making all the fancy stitches. Actually dragged it out this week to mend a skort I wanna wear this weekend.

Ahhhh the memories.

I mostly sew clothes for my girls. I have friends who quilt and that looks so tedious. Although, after all the ruffles I've sewn, perhaps that would be a breeze. LOL.

I tend to just take my knitting when traveling. Would be hard to fit a sewing machine in my Mini Lite.

Wow I am so impressed by people who can sew like that! I have a girlfriend in Australia, and when she came to America, she made shirts, skirts, etc all by hand. No machine.....I can barley sew a hem! I always wished I could sew! When I was in high school we had to sew a simple skirt with a zipper.....all I remember was having to rip it out over and over! I was so frustrated that I ended up hating to sew! The teacher was not very supportive and seemed to have no patience for girls that didn't catch on right away! My sister can sew, quilt, crochet, knit....but I missed the gene pool on that!

My only frustration is I am SLOW. My goal was to make two dresses and one outfit for each girl this summer. I just barely finished the second dress and the rest of the fabric sits there. Granted, I work full time plus my mom job, but I'm still painfully slow.

I guess when I retire, I can sew for my future grandkids. LOL.
