Quilters Go To Camp!

If you happened to pass by Independence Hall on Monday the 22nd, around 10:45 am, it looked like the place was being robbed.  Women carrying ironing boards, irons, cutting mats, design walls & rulers, out of the building and loading them into a large truck. Then, came the large bins of electrical cords, surge-protectors and power strips.  When the truck was packed full, ladies carried left-over items to their cars.

Quilt camp began on Tuesday, after hauling all that stuff from the Hall AND getting tables and electrical power figured out. Whew!

The hardest work of the day was setting up our personal bedding, suitcases & multiple tote bags full of snacks, jammies, toiletries, and medications. Then, we had to set up our personal sewing space – sewing machine + fabric, thread, needles, scissors, small cutting boards, small irons and pads, and projects to work on. Thank goodness we each had a large 8 foot table to ourselves. Our crap (whoops!) “stuff” spilled over to underneath our table and the floor surrounding it.

You may see some of the mess in the background of the photos, but the photographer tried to crop it out. The Guild’s professional photographer was not at camp, so the not-so-professional one did the best she could with the random shots taken….

Jo, Peggy and Nadine get serious with their work

Joanne, Janet and Valerie still discussing matters…

So there you have it – a glimpse into our Guild’s annual camp. It is only a tiny glimpse, because you know… what happens at camp, stays at camp.
