Sewing Meet Up

Yesterday I went to London to the Sewing Directory meet up.  What a fantastic day.  I met people who I have interacted with on Instagram and via blogs, and new people too.  

We had such a relaxed afternoon chatting and sewing. There was a raffle and refreshments.  Fiona did an excellent job of getting us all together

Susan from Sewbox provided us with gorgeous fabrics and I discovered that she only lives about 25 mins from me


Susan has a fabulous website and great deals on Liberty fabrics


We made notebook covers - well, got as far as embellishments: I still have a lot more to do!



I had a quick wander around and then met up with an old school friend for a gossip



A fabulous day.  I am so far behind with reading blogs that I am now going to spend a nice relaxing hour catching up with everyone
