|BeeBee brought her beautiful fur coat lovingly nicknamed the Yeti.|
I have adopted it and hope to save it from wadderville.

|please excuse the crude airbrush job - not everyone wants their image online,|
I am still learning Photoshop, but not quick enough yet to use it consistently.
|There were A LOT of patterns- this is before they all came!|
|lots of good food & drinks|
Here are the blogs of the other attendees (several of our group don't blog & we loved meeting you!!!)
Sophie - FilASewphie (pronounced philosophy, I bet!) is wearing the cute polka dot skirt in the pics above.
Audrey - SewTawdry wore a beautiful butterfly print top made from a Rachel Comey design.
Sue - Sewin' Steady wore a top made from an unusual textured doubleknit sewn from a vintage pattern and we all agreed it was an elegant, elevated version of a sweatshirt.
Lisette - La Cubanita Close and BeeBeePastiche both came and realized they are practically neighbors. BeeBee brought her magnificent fur coat that wasn't quite working for her, and I nabbed it. The faux fur is just gorgeous.
Cidell came, of Miss Celie's Pants looking lovely in her her latest purple dress.
Trena, The Slapdash Sewist wore a beautiful wool wrap dress she sewed.
And Lauren, of Smunch was there wearing a stylish top she had sewn; she is in the very first photo, towards the right in the cap-sleeved top. I think she said it was a burda pattern.
Lisa, of As I Said wore her most recently sewn beautiful pants, and Lisa organized the event, so Thank You LISA!!
There were a few more there, but not everyone likes to have an online presence and Anna had left just before we took photos.
So! I am not exaggerating when I say this was a GREAT day. I made little name tags and because we weren't all acquainted before today. We sure did enjoy the fabric, the patterns and lots of sewing talk.
After the fabric swap, most of the group went on to shop at G Street, and I hope they made out like bandits.
Thank you to everyone for coming today - I really enjoyed our get-together!
