Our Sewing Soiree was such great fun! We had 15 gals come over for some Girls night out stitching fun. I was too busy giving instructions to take too many pictures but thankfully I got to snap a few toward the end.
Everyone brought something to work on. The experienced helped the beginners. A big thanks to Caroline of Sew Can She who helped my plan it and pull the whole night off.
We squeezed into every open section of the house
A couple of months ago I discovered that Bonnie of Fish Sticks Design lives just a mile from my house and she came too. The only picture I got of her was of her taking a picture as we were laughing at ourselves taking pictures for our blogs.
Mostly there was a lot of chit chat and fun visiting of course. About half of the gals made a version of my Simple Tote. Tutorial coming soon!
We had every skill level from first time sewists to fashion designers.
Check out these fabulous sleeves on Kim's dress.
Oh we also had quite a spread of yummy food. Ninfa's Green Sauce, Chocolate Chex Mix, and Lemon Cream Cheese cupcakes, cheese dip, chocolate strawberries and a few other things brought by friends.
And now if you are reading this and are sad you didn't get to come, I have a little prize to giveaway. Hot pads made from my sew along scraps and a SewCanShe goodie bag with a Fat Quarter a bit of ribbon, and a presser foot guide.
