Where do I begin? How do I describe today? This morning began gently, sitting in a circle with a small group of accomplished dressmakers eager to begin six days with Susan Khalje. We introduced ourselves and we shared the special fabrics, patterns and ideas we'd brought to the workshop.
We also drooled over projects made in previous classes (look at this bias cut gown below!!)
A Fabric Place, which was packed when we arrived. And I accompanied a classmate to G Street Fabrics. I was her real-life GPS and let me tell you, if you need someone to drive you to the emergency room, find a motivated fabric shopper. I am not sure I've ever made it between Baltimore and Rockville quite that fast. Not that her driving was scary or anything. (that's not at how I meant that, okay, just a little bit).
OK, just kidding.
A wonderful day, with much progress already! More to come!
