Last weekend I had the most amazing time at the LA Blogger Meet up! It was a wonderful afternoon of meeting friends, having lunch, and of course fabric shopping with about 40 lovely southern California ladies. I meant to take pictures, I really did. But it just didn’t happen. 😦
Oh well, I can show you the treasure I came home with though. There was an awesome fabric and pattern swap, and I came away with these:
I’m really excited about the Sewaholic Minoru jacket pattern, and that vintage number in the center. I also really like the fabric, it’s an ITY knit (I think). I’m planning to try a wrap dress with it. I’m not sure who brought the things I picked up, but a sincere thank you to you!
The meetup was at The Fabric Store, which was a new-to-me shop. All I can say is I love it, and I plan to go back whenever I’m in LA. I found so many beautiful fabrics, it was hard to narrow my final selection, and I still ended up with more than I really need. Oops. 🙂
After the meetup, I was planning to drive straight home. But as I was headed toward the freeway, I decided at the last minute to cruise over to the fashion district, and to Michael Levine in particular. My little detour paid off. I went to the Levine Loft, and it was packed full of great finds. Every box yielded something I wanted to take home.
In the end, I came away with two more bags of fabric. Another oops. 🙂
I guess now I need to get busy making things. Over the past month, I’ve been doing a lot of traveling, and not so much sewing. But I do have a couple finished projects that I haven’t had time to blog about. So more on those soon!
