I've now been in Seattle for two months, which is just about the same length of time I've been thinking about writing this post. And, honestly, two months is far to long to wait to write a thank you, especially one to some of the most amazing people in the sewing community. But, you see,… Continue reading A Very Belated Thank You to the Bay Area Sewists
Whew! It's been quite a crazy last few months finishing up things around here and getting ready to move up to Seattle. I'm almost out of time here in the Bay, but I'd still like to squeeze in one last evening of sewing-related fun. Since I first wrote about a meet up, I've been trying… Continue reading Let’s Meet Up – Next Week!
Saturday, September 22nd It's 4:30 pm, and I'm hemming my husband's shirt, my next MSN make, as I wait for Daiyami. I'm all ready to go - I've got on my new bow blouse and my Beignet. I'm excited it's so easy to pull together a handmade outfit for a sewing event, but I'm also nervous that I'll… Continue reading Colette Patterns Launch Party – Fall 2012

Monday, August 13th I'm running late again. I wonder how it is that I never seem to finish work in time, especially when there are sewing enthusiasts to meet tonight! As I'm rushing out, I realize I won't have time to gather my camera or anything for the show-and-tell session, and I am very thankful… Continue reading Cañada College Meet Up
Way back when I posted about the Gaultier Meet Up, I got a lovely comment from Ronda of Cañada College inviting me to another Bay Area meet up. She said... Come join us for a Blogger Meet-Up at Cañada College, Monday, August 13, 2012 from 7-9 pm. We’ll show you around our fabulous space and tell you… Continue reading Let’s Meet Up!
Saturday, June 23rd I come back from my morning run a little later than expected. I quickly shower, throw on my favorite maxi dress, and blow dry my hair. D is right on time to pick me up, and as I'm running out the door I grab my camera and a plum. Funny that I'll… Continue reading Meet Up: The Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibit
May 9th It's 5:00, and I'm sneaking out of work. I've been too excited to be highly productive all day anyway, so it's just as well. I pack up my computer, jump on my bike, and pedal home as fast as I can. I'm zooming past the other bike commuters with a giant smile on… Continue reading Did you make that?: An Evening in the City
I mentioned in my post on Tuesday that I was going to a Fit Clinic held through the Bay Area Sewists Meet Up group this past weekend. Well, I decided I didn't have the courage to wear a muslin of a bustier in front of strangers, so instead I made up a muslin of the… Continue reading A Saturday Afternoon Fit Clinic
The last month at work has been all about an upcoming deadline, which happens to be this Thursday. My life has been all about writing, writing, writing. But, yesterday, my boss informed me that the deadline was pushed back a month. I let out a sigh of relief and then totally shut down. I'd been… Continue reading The Night When Sewing Bloggers Came to Life
