LA Blogger-Sewing Meetup

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.IMG_3772With,  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.IMG_3766I don’t know any of the names, 40 people is a large group, I didn’t get a chance to meet everyone.IMG_3764Stephanie, Lorin and Laurie, one of the intrepid organizers who came up from San Diego.IMG_3774Then it was over to the Fabric store, I had intended to take pictures of us inside, but I got involved in the swap instead.IMG_3775Today 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.
IMG_3776 As if I don’t have enough patterns, I picked these up from the swap.IMG_3777Also from the swap, lace and knit as well as this funky 50’s looking knit, both will make easy summer dresses or tops.

IMG_3778I 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.10371994_880244571992132_5253506688494318529_n

  1. So nice to meet you, thanks for the mention! I didn’t realize you did Conservancy tours, I’d love to do that sometime, as I love all the old architecture downtown (and elsewhere in LA, specifically Art Deco/Nouveau)
    And funny enough, you ended up with the turquoise lace that I brought to swap, hope you’re able to put it to good use!

    1. Yes, I usually give one tour a month. On June 28th I’m giving downtown Renaissance. You can find details on the LA conservancy website.
      I hope to make something out of the green lace, if I do, you will know about it.

  2. Leah, so nice to meet you yesterday! How interesting the work you do with the Conservancy. I’ll have to check out the website 🙂

  3. WOW! You really did have a busy day, Leah! Great photos of the sewing meet-up. Thanks for making time for our World Wide Stitch in Public Day! Yeah…photoshop…heh heh.

  4. It was a great time on Saturday, sorry I didn’t get to chat with you (since our names are just one letter different!) Also, that brown knit was mine, glad it found a good home!

    1. There were a lot of us, it was hard to talk to everyone. I love the brown knit, that is what is so great about swaps, something that is old and tired to you is new and fresh to someone else.
