Yesterdays Sewing Social was great fun! Lots of shopping and talking about sewing and advice seeking about fabric selection and did I mention shopping?? I think I may have shopped more than most, but I don’t head out too often to purchase fabric. Actually, Leith and Rachel smuggled most of their purchases into their accommodation prior to meeting us. I’m sure they’ll win the shopping award once we see it!
We saw some familiar faces and some newbies joining in the fun. Now, I must confess I was a very slack organiser yesterday and didn’t collate a blog roll with each persons details – sorry! I’ve tried to remember everyone, but I’m sure I’ve missed some. Please let me know and I’ll add you to the list.

Here are some of us at Tessuti. I’ve nabbed this photo from Wendy’s blog. I saw a few other camera’s floating around, so hopefully we’ll see more pics soon.
Sharon, Rachel, Jillian. Thanks Wendy!
From The Fabric Store – lace and silk to make a dress for an upcoming wedding. I’m thinking of making something similar to this Anthro dress.
Also from The Fabric Store – black, thick striped stretch which is destined to become a maxi skirt (this should happen soon) and black super light-weight silk/linen for a shirt.
From The Fabric Store – the most disappointing purchase of the day is this navy wool. I didn’t realise it was as navy in the lighting of the store. Oh well, it was cheap and half price so I’m sure I’ll get over it. 🙂 Also pictured is black silk for lining which obviously will still get used.
