The craft retreat sounds like heaven to me. Taking precut fabric was a great idea.

I got a folding cutting board/pressing board - it is an Omnigrid product and worked just great.

One day I'll give in to the temptation and try a trailer item - they are just so cute.

I don't have a fancy pressing board at home due to limitations in space. I have a small, table-top ironing board that I use on top of my washer and dryer similar to this one. Sullivans Go Board Portable Ironing Board-12''X32'' at When I'm done with it I fold it and tuck it between the wall and the side of the washing machine!

That is so cute, do you have a pattern for your sewing machine cover. I would love to make one.

Hi Cathy,
I followed a tutorial found at Rainbow Hare Quilts: Vintage Caravan Sewing Machine Cover - Pattern (Version 1) and Tutorial
One commenter suggested using Soft&Stable instead of the multiple layers of batting, but it's still a little floppy. Also, I tried to scale the pattern down to fit a smaller machine, and I'm not really happy with my results. Operator error!
It's such a cute pattern, so maybe I'll try again.
Have fun!

Marsha, i looked up your sewing machine, i believe you said it was an Anna? It really is just the right size for the camper and it has everything you need on it for sewing. It looks like a great machine and probably sews great. (I think I posted this in the wrong section--sorry.)
