I wasn't looking to buy much. Really, I went for the conversation and the opportunity to pick up any pearls of wisdom from other people who share my hobby. Here's what I learned:
- I need to get over my fear of prints. Elizabeth, of Sew a Beginner, totally set the example by scoring some gorgeous print knits at Spandex House and MetroTextiles. She was also wearing a beautiful print dress that she had sewn, which brings me to my next point...
- I really ought to make an effort to wear more dresses and skirts. Trena, aka the Slapdash Sewist, who was the instigator of the meet up, was also wearing a beautiful print dress that she had sewn. In my mind's eye, her closet must be jam packed with an endless number of dresses, one cuter than the next.
- There is no time like the present. Mikhaela, of Polka Dot Overload, really is seizing the day by launching a new blog and sewing up a storm while 6+ months pregnant. I need to learn to just go for it and take on more projects that will stretch my skills.
