Picture this: Spending your day in inspiring lectures about your handmade business or fabric design, or taking fun hands-on classes where you might sew your own PJ pants or learn English smocking. Then spending your nights going out to eat in an exciting city, or lounging on a plush hotel bed with some of your closest friends, stitching away on a sampler or comparing notes about how you learned how to get the perfect ¼” seam. Doesn’t that sound pretty perfect?
