Thanks Ladies for a fab day! It was a bit like organising a party and biting your nails until the first guests start to arrive!
And arrive you did – we had a ball – and so did the fabric shop-keepers in Dewsbury. I bet they closed early as I’m sure today’s takings must’ve been up on a normal Wednesday!
We met in the coffee shop at around 10:30 (Fiona, Dee and Margaret joined us a little later). Most of us were strangers to each other in ‘real life’, but not for long. We were all chatting like long lost pals! It was fab to finally meet up with everyone, especially Rachel and Amanda as I felt like i knew them anyway, we’d followed each others blogs for so long!
Our first port of call was Lucky Fashions…..
The lovely lady there had even got some water and cans of pop in case we needed refreshments!
Then we headed down to the market and onto Fabworks. I kept doing a head count to make sure we’d not lost anyone, but I could’ve done with Amanda taking the register!
It was hard work all this shopping, a sit down was in order!
Phew! It was soon mid afternoon and we were all starving, so we headed off to the local Weatherspoons.
A meal and a drink for less than £6!
Go on then! Make it a pint!!
I just wish I had taken the bus…. coffee doesn’t quite quench the thirst like a pint of lager!
We all had a great time – well I did and I hope the rest did too! It was great to get together with fellow sewers and crafty folk!
I didn’t break the bank with what I spent, but as i’m only 7 miles away I didn’t need to go mad. Here’s what I did buy though…..
Flowery curtaining to make a couple of cushions – 1m for £11
Yards and yards of satin bias binding – 20p / metre
4 spools of overlocker thread – £1 each
10m of very chunky piping at 50p per metre.
Not too bad – I spent more when I called into Dewsbury to take pix for the original post!!
The rest of the Spoolette bought some amazing fabric and I really can’t wait to see what they make!
