After last week's blogging masterclass, I had the pleasure of joining Ros from Sew Delicious again for her winter sewing day at GJ's Discount Fabrics.
I haven't done anything like this before and had no idea what to take. So I went through all my unfinished projects (UFOs) and took them with a couple of patterns I'm testing. I was a little ambitious with 15 or so little zip lock bags as I only finished Ninja (featured yesterday) and started a little piecing for a patchwork version of the Noodlehead Open Wide Zippered Pouch.
The venue was perfectly suited to a large sewing group - huge wooden tables, power points, ironing boards and irons all ready to go. Oh and did I mention that it was right above a fabric store. I did *need* thread for my project and of course I didn't *need* a couple of fat quarters from the $2 bargain table. I would really love to go back there again with more time (I know odd since I was there all day!) and money.
I only took a couple of photos to share - in between sewing, chatting and eating yummy cake.
