Sydney sewer meet up

We had lots of familiar sewing bloggers meet together on Saturday. I think fabric shopping was like background entertainment for us because it was so much fun meeting and chatting too everyone in real life.

While we got a helpful discount from Tessutis, I weakened with The Fabric Store's 50% off sale.
This picture is from Little Betty blog, courtesy of Wendy. PS Wendy was glowing.
So while I don't need more fabric, I weakened and purchased some silk pieces.

Pic left to right: Janelle, Rebecca and moi hunting fabrics. I wore my jungle print Yalta top. We hunted Janelle to find her perfect couture dress fabrics - successfully.

And Gabrielle was able to make it this time. I've been wanting to meet Gabrielle since Made-Me-May 2012.

Lena Merrin was there and gave us her industry-based fabric buying advice. Did anyone notice Lena's skirt? Yana has been making some great maternity wear, as you can plainly see. All the best Yana!

So silks were on my shopping list, especially for the price. Did I mention that I'm easily swayed by a bargain.

Thanks to Kristy for arranging our meet up. I like Kristy's idea of having the next meet up at a cafe because I had no 'beans left in the can' by the time it was time to go for drinks. Keep and eye on her blog for the next meet up.

I missed seeing Kristy, Jodie and Anne:((

BTW: Here's an interesting fact. The Fabric Store has just ordered in rolls of the jungle print I was wearing. Now I bought this fabric at Pitt Trading (a Charlie Brown remnant) early last year. You know, that remnant bin with my name on it - LOL. So if you like this print, keep an eye out for it next time you're in the store.
Small world!

Well, there could be?

oh I wish I could have made it, it was great chatting and chatting and chatting about sewing and blogs last time without feeling like one exhausted the subject! Sadly I was very sick, and not even the thought of 50% off at the Fabric Store could get me out of bed this weekend past.....

Thanks for the pics and tales of fabulous fabric finds! Very sorry to miss all the fun...I had what Kristy had (I think)...Definitely not good company! Next time!

I think a cafe / swap meet up would be great!

Gabrielle said...

It was soooo much fun - instant friendships - I had a ball! BTW I noticed your trousers as you were leaving, and wished I'd asked you for the details! I'm going to have to hunt back through your blog now to find them...

Yana said...

It was a lovely time and lovely to meet you! :) xx

Sharon said...

It was another great day and so good to meet up with everyone again. Looking forward to seeing what creation the silk becomes.
