How great was the Sydney Sewist meet up on Saturday? so much fun!
It was so good to finally put faces to names and spend hours just chatting. Despite a momentary panic just before I arrived it was all good (not sure what I was worried about? it’s not like someone was going to stab us with their dressmaking scissors or anything like that!).
We talked about sewing, our favourite patterns and fabrics, the sad state of politics and journalism in Australia, the quality and cleanliness of public toilets across the world. Who had the cutest sewing cat (my mini was getting a lot of votes for that one, awww). No topic was off limits for our lunchtime chat!
The food was delicious, there was as very small scramble to check out the fabric swap and then the weather even held off raining for our walk down to Tessuti and across to The Fabric Store. Here much planning of outfits and fabric purchasing was made and even a shock confession that someone doesn’t like Liberty prints (oh the scandal! ha not really, love that everyone has their own style).
Despite being utterly exhausted it was sad to leave everyone at the train station as we made our way home, and seriously cannot wait for the next time we can get together to talk, plan and share our love of sewing.
You can see more photos of the day on the Measure Twice Cut Once Flickr if you use any of the photos if you can add a link to the blog in your credits that would be ace! Thanks.
With thanks to Alex from When All you Need is for the fab logo and for getting a photo of my Pink Cherry Dress!
