(Dandelion photo to distract you from the lack of sewing pics…)
Hi all. Sorry I’ve been so absent from the blog. Things have been busy-ish. Also, after the flooding I just kind of lost my sew-jo. Partly since my sewing room was turned into a guest room and because I’ve been working on helping with the clean-up. (Not actually mucking out basements but helping to make and deliver lunches to workers.)
I have started on my Mathilde blouse wearable muslin. It’s solid black so it didn’t photograph well at all. Just trust me when I say the front tucks are good enough but certainly not perfect. Here are the adorable buttons I decided to use.
Anyway, it looks like the Toronto Meet-up is scheduled for Saturday, August 10th at 10am in the Fashion District. I thought we could meet at King Textile at 161 Spadina Avenue. Best to meet right outside. We will visit about 3 to 4 fabric shops and end up at Le Neuf Cafe at King and Spadina for noon. Here we can do a swap (please bring patterns, fabric, notions).
Here’s who we’ve got so far:
Seraphinalina (am I allowed to say I’m looking forward to meeting her most of all…?)
aem2 (can’t make it but would like to. here’s a blog link anyway!)
I originally made lunch reservations for 6. I guess I didn’t anticipate the response. Looking forward to sharing some sewing stories and getting to know you all better!
What I’m listening to: You’ve Got Time by Regina Spektor
Woo hoo! It’s going to be a good day.
I hope so! I’m going to a baseball game after so it’ll be quick. But glad I’m able to meet some folks.
🙂 Can’t wait to meet you all, since I missed the last meetup!
Yipes – I’m so sorry about the flooding! My sister got flooded too, and it’s be such a nightmare!
Thanks for pulling together details of the meet-up! I posted about it on our Toronto Sewcialists Facebook Page!
yay! Aug 10 it is!

Gjeometry was a ‘yes’! Lol. And, it’s Catja, in case you can’t place the name with the blog. It was so great meeting you all and hanging out! 🙂 Thanks Funny Girl, for organizing everybody, hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Toronto.
