|Hugging silk tweed fabric at a great price.|
|Laughing our heads off at hugging fabric.|
SAS Fabrics is an amazingly huge place where it you can buy fabric by weight. There are notions. Rows and rows of all sorts of notions being sold a ridiculously low prices. And you wouldn't pick this store from its street view. It is huge and if you have a bunch of projects you want to complete, this is the place for those bits and pieces you need. As Grace says, fabric shopping is a great way to overcome jet lag. She was right in my case.
|We were both happy with our haul and we're both wearing me-made outfits. Grace is great at using her stash. She's wearing her fail to win outfit.|
|A couple of workout wear fabrics, silks in classic prints and some notions (not shown).|
I missed the opportunity to meet KC Sheehan (another sewer who cycles) as I over estimated what I could do in a day with a very tired hubby.
You were right KC. Next visit I'll add in a few days (hire a car) to get to the garment district and fabric shop with you and Grace.
|I love mexican food now.|
While Grace and I fabric shopped DH said he was going back to the hotel after Grace picked me up, but he decided to stayed a Culver City Westfields and shopped at Old Navy. His energy returned:) Grace's theory about shopping to overcome jet lag was proven to work for both of us.For dinner we met up for real Mexican food (see the cooks above) and our husbands joined us. We had a great night. We all cycle so sewing didn't dominate the conversation.
The next day I bought a Mexican cooking basics magazine at LAX as we waited for our NY connection, to remember the great day I had with Grace.
Thank you Grace and Mark. I hope to catch up with you next visit KC.
