Threads booth at Sewing Expo WA
Hi Amber and the Rest of my wonderful ladies online..
I just wanted to say I missed seeing you Amber there at the booth. I went on Thursday/Friday and heard rumors you were coming after that!! I did leave you a note Hope you got it…
At anyway I just wanted to let you see the pic I took…wanted it to be me and you but didn’t happen.
I as well as 2 other Gatherings ladies met up face to face on Friday morn, went to one of the style shows together and we took a picture of us.
I hope you will cut me some slack and let it slide as I am going to post these two pics here!! Please Ms Amber don’t ding me for it!!
But where else is a great place but here to show off your booth as well as three of the ladies you see around here
Cynthia2 aka Cynthia is on the left, Cynthia’s is sporting her Trench she made!! Way cool
Blondie2sew aka Blondie aka Connie is in the middle (ya know the blonde one) I am sporting you see my new handbag
loomchick aka Robyn is on the right (the one in the hat)
So there you have it I thought it was fun to see some faces whom we chat and exchange wonderful ideas and instruction with online!!
Sorry I missed you. But now you see some of our faces
Next year ladies all of you need to come out this way!! How fun would that be!!
Thank you so much for that and with photos. Wonderful idea. You all look fantastic.
I am saving my pennies to fly over! Can I stay with You , I don't take up much room and I am great with kids?
sure you can just bring that lil man of yours he will have a play mate!! ha haThe dates for next year are Feb 28th- March 2nd...So book that airfare in advance chickie!! Blondie
Lil man would enjoy it, his longest flight was One and A half Hours Sydney to Brisbane. We've never been out of Australia. It would be awesome!
Its great to see you all
- obviously having a great time
- and with "the " bag in use!!
You all look as if spending might have been on order - buy anything useful, great to look at or just 'cos u had to have it?
I'm envious of u all being able to go to what is obviously a great show - nothing quite on that scale over here!
Hi Jan,Yes to all those wonderful questions and when I get some time I will post in the appropriate threads on what I bought what I learned and such!! Just a hint...I to will soon be an owner of a needle felting machine...that look for under that thread...I was thinkin of you when I was playing with it and my mind went crazy on the many uses and things that could be had with that machine...So more to come...maybe next year for you???!!Blondie
Hi Connie. Thanks so much for posting the photo of us. It was great to meet you and Robyn. Your handbag was incredible! On behalf of everyone that hasn't gotten to see it in person, I know they'd love to see some close-up photos of the pockets, trims and other features.
Sat down and went through all my treasures from the expo today. Haven't decided yet what project I'll work on first, but I did pick up five great pieces of fabric, including some gorgeous silk/wool blends from The Wool House and more trims and zippers than I care to count from the various other vendors.
The fitting class by Lorraine Henry was undoubtedly my favorite seminar this year. I bought her booklet, Measuring Made Easy, and Barb and I spent about an hour or so taking all of my measurements. It was so great to have a fitting buddy that understands garment construction.
Looking forward to seeing you and Robyn again next year and hoping our other Gathering friends will be there too!
I was so glad to see the picture of the three musketeers. I loved them. You all looked full of joy, which is probably the same way I would feel at one of those expos. Thanks for the pictures, you guys.Marcy
It was fun seeing you too Cynthia and by the way same goes for that gorgeous coat you were sporting...I am sure a few more pics for the peeps here will do just fine!! ha haYa I bought a few items as well.....Blondie
I got back to Mississippi on Monday night after a wonderful week at the Expo and am just now getting caught up on Gatherings. We got to the airport there on the Monday night before Expo and it was snowing then raining, sleeting, and just about anything else cold that could fall but we had a fantastic time. We found antique stores and got some things there on Tuesday before the show. Wed. we had the pre-day. Where did you all met on Friday? I was thinking you had said by the information booth so I went over there but didn't know how to recognize anyone. We bought so much fabric that we had to buy another suitcase to get it home. I took so many classes that I have to go back through my notes to sort it all out soon. We did the tea on Sunday and had Sue Hausmann's husband at our table. Very interesting to talk to. We loved the show and thought everyone was so very nice and friendly. We were glad when the sun came out on Sunday evening though, so we know you do have some sun.
