First of all, thank you Erin, Laurie, Jill, Kathy for doing such an amazing job putting this event together. Sewers, costumers, crafters from all over SoCal came to the event. From the central coast to San Diego and many of us in between.With, Lorin, Kathy, Amy and Jo. I only brought my little camera and shot a few pictures, I got too busy talking with people and neglected the camera after a while.I don’t know any of the names, 40 people is a large group, I didn’t get a chance to meet everyone.Stephanie, Lorin and Laurie, one of the intrepid organizers who came up from San Diego.Then it was over to the Fabric store, I had intended to take pictures of us inside, but I got involved in the swap instead.Today was my winning day, my name was drawn for the Moneta Dress, already owning that pattern I threw my name back in the hat. I then won Mabel, a simple skirt pattern. Pam asked to trade for this, I was more than happy to make the trade. Have to look closely to see if I actually make this.
As if I don’t have enough patterns, I picked these up from the swap.Also from the swap, lace and knit as well as this funky 50’s looking knit, both will make easy summer dresses or tops.
I have never had fabric from Australia – it really has a different vibe. Don’t know if it will become a garment or part of a quilt. The two other fabrics are destined for the quilting fabric stash for sure.
On a final note, it was Knit in public day, so before I met all the sewers, I spent an hour with my knitting buddies, we had a much larger group than a normal Saturday at the Farmers Market. Thank you Ellen for having the picture taken on your phone. Also, I love your photoshop skills.
