I honestly can hardly believe it! It's going to be amazing! So, what am I going to be doing there you ask? This camp is set up where each teacher teaches an intensive workshop, and mine will be a weekend Emery Dress extravaganza! Yes, we'll be making the entire Emery Dress (sans collar & bow) in a single weekend, surrounded by the beautiful fall foliage of the Catskill Mountains. It's going to be so great!

One of the joys of this kind of retreat is learning in a concentrated format, surrounded by people that share your love of sewing, uninterrupted by the day-to-day worries of everyday life. By immersing yourself in this experience, you will learn more, feel supported, and leave with new skills and new friends. This is truly an unique and wonderful opportunity!

For my Emery Dress class, a muslin will be provided in each size for campers to try on to ensure good fit, patterns will be pre-cut in every size, a hard copy of the pattern will be yours to take home for future use, and I will be there to help you each step of the way!

In addition to my class, there are some pretty stellar other teachers there too, so if you don't need help making an Emery Dress, no worries, come and learn something else! Below is a full line-up of the awesome classes you can take!

Jen Beeman, Heather Lewenza, Norma Loehr, Melissa Watson, Erin Proud, & Whitney Crutchfield


Fleur Hoare, Jennifer Wiese, Sonja Gingerich, & Nellie Wu

Helping all of us teachers out will be some pretty awesome Camp Counselors too! You probably recognize these lovely ladies! Fleur Hoare of Maison Fleur, Jennifer Wiese of Workroom Social, Sonja Gingerich of Ginger Makes, and Nellie Wu of Mama Peaches.

And if all of that is not enough, there will be ziplining, karaoke, group meals in the mess hall, a fashion show of finished makes, and loads of bonding and fun. All of this goes down October 16–19 at the Frost Valley YMCA Camp in Claryville, NY on 5,000 acres in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. 

Interested? Find out more about the teachers and counselors, read all about the classes, see the schedules of each day, and then register to attend!

I hope to see you there!!!
