I went to the Sewing and Stitchery Expo on Saturday! This is the very first year I have ever made it. I was so excited!!!
I met up with Amy from Friends Stitched Together (and Crafting Con).
It was the first time we met IRL, and we laughed for about 4 hours straight! Instantly comfortable around each other.
She is so fabulous. It was really nice to be able to walk around and share this experience with someone who sews!
There was so much to see. And THE FABRIC. My goodness. THE FABRIC.
Oh these lace trims! I am pretty sure I drooled a little bit near them.
There was something there for everyone, for sure.
It was a quilter’s paradise, though. Plenty of fabrics, machines, and gadgets geared toward quilters. We even got to test drive a quilting machine. It was crazy fun.
This made me wish I knit.
This was one of Amy’s favorites.
The delicate fabrics on these dresses just melted my heart.
THIS!!!! We have a friend who’s son is going to college for something brilliant and science-y. I would love to make something like this someday.
I was a little star stuck. She is made of all sorts of awesome. I also felt a little short. Ha!
Overall, a memorable day. And an excellent excuse to get out, do a little fabric shopping (more on that in another post), and socialize with my sewing people!
