I can't believe that it has been two weeks since my last post. My recent marriage has thrown a wrench in my sewing. I'm trying to spend more time at my future residence but that means no sewing because all of my sewing machines are at my old residence. Over the weekend I hope to be able to move some of my sewing stuff. I have managed to get one Burda magazine pattern traced and the Jalie jeans pattern. I've decided I don't like tracing patterns and unless these two wind up being absolutely amazing, I probably won't be tracing many more.
It's hard to believe this is my 100th post! I'm planning a giveaway in the near future. I'm not announcing what it will be for at least a week because if everything works out like I want, I might have two instead of one. Stay tuned. I will say that you have to be a follower and leave at least one comment on or before October 9th to qualify. The give away is a sewing related item or items that we can all use and can never have enough of!
Over the weekend I attended and worked at the American Sewing Expo which is run by Janet Pray and is the largest independent sewing expo in the country. I've attended the expo every year for eons and can say that the best part was the Pattern Review booth and Friday night get together. Deepika is so friendly and I got to meet Rocketboy (Brian) and PeterNYC (Peter)and Kenneth King. Of course I bought stuff! I bought my giveaway items, a catcher for my serger, fabric (of course), some embroidery designs, a DVD, and a few buttons. I sat in on some fitting classes and was somewhat disappointed that one demonstrator totally trashed another demonstrators method. I think when you're good at something, you don't have to trash someone else to make yourself look good. I also don't like it when a demonstrator's answer is "it's in my book."
Enough for now. Don't forget to follow and leave a comment by October 9th to qualify for the 100th post giveaway.
