Hey there! You all asked to take lots of piccies, so we did! I’ll keep the words brief, or I won’t have time to post (I don’t watch much TV but Broadchurch is on in 15 minutes!!)
First just a few thankyous! To my lovely prefects for helping everything run smoothly….Hila, Karen and Karen. I’m so lucky that these ladies live close to me and are real life friends now, as well as on the screen!
Karen and Karen – how crazy is it that these 2 discovered whilst doing their goodie bag duties that they were in the same class at high school!! So as well as having a sewists meet up, little did I know that I’d organised a school reunion!!
We took over a section of the pub, it seated about 28, but before long there was standing room only.
The goodie bag swap went down really well – I’ll write a separate post for that as there’s the competition for you to win one too to announce!
This picture (which I’ve borrowed from Eleanor) really sums that day up!
And I met Shauni’s amazing new dress. It’s even more stunning in really life!
Before we hit the shops we had a group photos for the Moneta Party – I’m sure by now it needs no introduction!
And then 30+ ladies hit the shops!
FABWORKS (thanks for this pic Eleanor)
As Dewsbury is only small, even though we didn’t all stick together we all kept ‘bumping’ into each other.
Hila being her usual not very restrained self! I can’t wait until she updates her you tube channel with her Dewsbury fabric haul – it’ll be a feature length film, be sure to stock up on popcorn before you sit down to watch 😆.
We headed back to the pub for a bite to eat and for a pattern/fabric swap…..
Do you recognise the pattern below Del – I took the pack of patterns you sent a while ago and they all went to good homes!
And then the sad part came when it was time to go home. But I smiled all night, and I’m still smiling now!
I’ve some more to tell you from Sewdowndewsbury, including my haul and how the goodie bag swap went, and of course to open up the completion, so hopefully later in the week…….
