Family Crafting Day

I live about 2.5 hours from my mom and my sisters, but I know we share a love of spending time with family and crafting.

Large room for crafting
A few years ago, we tried to find a day to just get together, visit and craft on whatever we had going on. We've managed to do this 3 or 4 times, and then skipped a year and this year were able to get a day together.

My niece just moved into a lovely house that has a large walk-out basement with a gorgeous view and lots of light, so we planned to meet at her place. There was plenty of place for the kids to play, we each brought a little something for lunch and we came from near and far to have a great day.
Hard at work? Or avoiding getting their photo taken?
As you can see, we have reupholstery, sewing, crocheting, beading and just playing with the toys happening!

Do you get together with your family to craft or sew? With neighbours? Friends? How far would you travel to spend a day with others? Tell me about it!
