Scrub Stitching 2024

Scrub Stitching this year, as always, was great!  Camp Cypress, in Baradine, NSW, was our home for four nights - five days of sewing and fun, friendship and good times.
28 travellers came from all over the countryside, from Queensland to Melbourne (and New Zealand!), united by our love of quilting and blogging and everything in between.
Our 'Tribe' - 
The bloggers amongst us - 
It's a great sized room and we all have enough room to play, with the dining tables and kitchen along one side and sewing everywhere else.
A hive of activity!
Travel buddy and partner in crime Sue, sewing up a storm-

My sewing wasn't as productive as I would have liked - more on that another post - 
(Thank you to Chooky for lending me her machine ❤)

Saturday night was our celebration night - we were shooed out of the hall to have nibbles and watch the sunset-
Sue caught a photo like this last year, I managed one this year--------
The theme for Saturday evening this year was Stars.....something you could interpret any way you wanted.
We had Lea of the Milky Way-
Tina and Harriet and Star Wars, with child star Shirley Temple Kylie watching on-
and Sue and I donned starry outfits and had a good laugh!
Chooky has more photos of everyone dressed up on her blog if you want to take a look *here*.

This post has been sitting waiting to be finished for a few days now. I accidentally pushed  Publish when I was struggling to get wi-fi at the airport, so put it back into Draft to tidy it up.....however, I will leave it here and start afresh next time ☺

'til next time,
happy stitches,


  1. Great to see you enjoyed your time at Scrub Stitching. Loved Sue and your Starry outfits….
    Not only do you enjoy the time at retreat but your trip there and back is also such an adventure…
