Sewing Summit 12

Hi y’all!


How to make a room uncomfortable – tell them they have to take a selfie! From Olivia Omega‘s Personal Branding class.

I’m back from Sewing Summit, and I brought home a little something extra in the form of a cold. I’ve got serious fuzzy head syndrome which is making it difficult to even process all the things that happened at Sewing Summit.


Shop Hop haul. I can’t help but make rainbows!

Thinking about my own recent travels did make me wonder about you guys, though! Have any of you gone to Sewing Summit or some other sewing-related gathering? If so, what was your favorite gathering and favorite part? And if you haven’t gone to any, what’s kept you from going?

Lemme know, I’m curious where and how I can meet more of you!

      I can’t stop myself from the rainbows! Although this one is pretty light on purple. But that was a reflection of the low purple offerings at the store, not a personal preference. I love purple, too! πŸ™‚

      I’m so happy that I got to meet you! And I’m looking forward to chatting with you more in the facebook group about your future plans. πŸ˜€ Katy washed the pants (I still haven’t finished mine, haha!) and she said that the unwashed fabric only shrank a little bit. That was my biggest concern about pairing the fabrics, since you so kindly prewashed hers!

    Sewing Summit looks amazing. I would really love to attend one of these big sewing/blogging conferences. The main thing that’s stopping me is that they all seem to be in the US or the UK – rather a long trip from NZ. Actually it’s more the cost than the distance… Something to save up for πŸ™‚

      Is there really nothing in NZ? There was someone from NZ at sewing summit, and so she auto-won every “who travelled the furthest” contest there was (there were a fair number of them. And I bet the girl from Holland was super sad about it.) So there is at least one other person who would probably enjoy a more local sewing gathering! I think you guys should put one together, and give a bit of leeway, because I desperately want to come visit NZ and could use an excuse, but I’ll need to save for it. πŸ˜€

      I get you about the cost, too. I don’t go to the UK ones for that reason. 😐

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! I didn’t start out aiming to make a rainbow, but by the time I was in line with my purchases, there it was!! It happened in two stores, and then the third I had all neutrals. lol

      The closest gathering I know of near you is in the UK, the Fat Quarterly retreat. Which isn’t THAT close, but certainly closer than the US. πŸ™‚ I really hope more people start creating international gatherings! That’s partially selfish, though. I love having excuses to travel. πŸ˜€
