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.
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’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.
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).
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!
I agree with Sigrid. It looks like fun, and I hope you will show us pics of what you bought.
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!
How nice and what a great idea! Looks like it was a great time and I would have sure joined you all too!
Looks like so much FUN. You get to re-live the experience when you fondle each piece of fabric purchased. How great is that?!!
Yep so jealous 🙂
You gals look like you’re having a blast…who wouldn’t in the target rich environment of the NY Fab district!!!
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!
It looks like you had a fabulous time! How fun!
Happy for you all, but also a tad envious! 😉 😀
