I know you know how wonderful it is to talk for hours about sewing with similarly addicted folk. Well Saturday was, in that case, a wonderful day because me and ten other sewing nuts spent it together. Out.
What did we do? Oh we ate deliciousness, went op shopping (thrifting, if you prefer) and spent a bit of time fabric shopping too. But mostly we laughed and talked.
It was lovely and utterly exhausting.
Of course I bought a few little goodies along the way.
The fabric was an op shop find and possibly (though probably not) a silk blend and if so it will go into the stash for future garment lining. If, upon burning, it doesn’t have any silk in it at all I’ll use it for new kids’ dress-ups.
One other piece came home with me from Arthur Toye (fabric retailer) which is in the dryer as I type. It is rather dull but ever so soft light grey cotton lycra with which I will be making desperately needed PJ bottoms for moi.
I don’t have any pictures of the day as I left my camera at home (yes I am a twit), but a couple of the crew have already blogged about it more eloquently than I could plus have lovely photos posted so please do go check it out here and here.
