Among those present every summer are my mother and sister, devoted sewists like myself, and early on we twigged to a simple idea - we love to sew, so let's sew while camping! And so we take over a corner of the mostly unused communal dining room, and do just that.
The dining room. 1960's charm all round!
A long shot of the interior for context. The new chairs are really comfortable. Good solid formica tables keep the machines steady too. And lots and lots of room to cut things out!
On the afternoon of NYE when it rained the dining room was humming with people - jigsaws, knitting, having a good old chat, or in a few cases bent over laptops working, playing or surfing.
We have often been teased for bringing all of this kit to camp with us (it takes two trips from home to get everythign there but it is only an hour each way) but as often as not the teaser when teased back, confesses to piles of recreational equipment from golf clubs, fishing stuff, even a waterski once! So what the heck is the difference, we have to ask ourselves!
