Meetings and Greetings

13 Nov

I feel bad for the New York area bloggers and sewers. People like me come into town, twist their arms and beg them to go shopping or out for cocktails. This little trip to NY started with a bang as I got to meet Ann of Gorgeous Fabrics for the first time ever (photo ganked from her blog). She is taller than I thought and as chic as I imagined.  I really appreciate her slouching to make me seem taller. Not to put her business out there, but she’s also rocking a great haircut.

On Friday though the gloves came off. First, can I just say, I need to stop buying fabric like I’m never coming back to New York and acting like fabric is going  extinct!  Friday, before leaving town the locals came out for NYC cocktails. You  know it’s NY when they don’t even bother putting a price on the menu next to the specialty drinks. My guess was $15 each. They were $12.50. That’s not much more than Baltimore. And, it didn’t stop me from downing three.

NancyK and Rosie

Poor NancyK. She had to help me schlep fabric all over the garment district. And bless Rosie for helping me carry everything to my bus!

Elizabeth, Peter and Trena

Elizabeth’s coat is quite something. I fondled the lapel a few times. I didn’t get to talk to Peter as much as I would have like, but what a sweet guy! Trena. Grrrr. I’ll wait for her to tell you about that awesome dress. Let’s just say she told me I was going to be jealous and I am.

LindsayT and, well, me without makeup on. Would a little lipstick kill me?

I can’t wait to show you what I had done in NYC thanks to the wisdom of one LindsayT!

    It was so wonderful to finally meet you in person! Next time I’ll make sure I have more than an hour to spend with you.

    Short and sweet. Good to see you and Trena. Hopefully next time I will be able to join you in the shopping spree.

    So jealous! What a meeting of the minds! It’s hard to say “no” to fabric in the garment district, isn’t it? I totally understand! Looks like a great time, though!

    I love meeting sewing friends in the city. But, as Renee said, I’ve spent my entertainment budget for the month! It was fun, I didn’t even mind shlepping her fabric. We should have taken a picture of why I had to schlep it.

    Oh look at all those smiling happy faces! Thanks for posting.
    I LOVE seeing familiar faces show up on other folks’ blogs!

    Wahhhh, sniff, sniff!! I never get to meet any of my bloggy buds!! (stamps foot)

    OK, the tantrum is over. I guess the only solution is to visit my SIL and BIL in New Jersey more often. The bus to NYC has a stop at the end of their street!

    You had quite a stash going back :o). It was great to meet up with everyone and as Elizabeth said, “short and sweet”. Glad you made it home safely!

    What great pictures of beautiful happy women. Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

    Too fun! Love the image of you schlepping that roll of fabric. That’s a keeper.

    So many lovely people together. What fun. Will you share what you bought? (totally understand you can’t restrain with all that fabric shops around).

    • Miss Celie November 13, 2010 at 15:10 #

      My actual fabric purchases are very very boring (I can once say). But, once they all dry from the pre-treating, I’m take some shots!

  11. Karin November 13, 2010 at 13:45 #

    I agree with Sigrid. It looks like fun, and I hope you will show us pics of what you bought.

  12. LaKaribane November 13, 2010 at 13:57 #

    I’m almost AFRAID to see what you bought. I’m almost in tears as it is.

    Now that Aussie dollar has hit parity with the US, I am definitely heading on over!

  14. Myra November 13, 2010 at 16:57 #

    How nice and what a great idea! Looks like it was a great time and I would have sure joined you all too!

  15. Dr. Z November 13, 2010 at 17:39 #

    Looks like so much FUN. You get to re-live the experience when you fondle each piece of fabric purchased. How great is that?!!

  16. Ann's Fashion Studio November 14, 2010 at 15:05 #

    Yep so jealous :)

  17. ClaireOKC November 14, 2010 at 20:55 #

    You gals look like you’re having a blast…who wouldn’t in the target rich environment of the NY Fab district!!!

  18. Darci November 15, 2010 at 12:40 #

    Love that you all had a chance to get together! Wish I were closer to join in the fun. YAY for block fusing done by others and good friends to schlep!

  19. Angela November 15, 2010 at 13:55 #

    It looks like you had a fabulous time! How fun!

  20. Isabelle November 17, 2010 at 03:18 #

    Happy for you all, but also a tad envious! ;) :D

  21. Amber December 8, 2010 at 11:24 #
