|From L to R: Sandra, Chloe, Reethi, Tracey, Gillian and Jagoda|
1. Invite a bunch of sewintists to go shopping and eating and drinking and swapping.
And yer done. Really, that's all you need.
I thought I took a lot of photos, but it turns out I didn't. Perhaps having to take off gloves and getting everyone to stand still in the cold wind were not conducive to lots of photos. Or maybe it was just that all the talking, shopping, eating and drinking got in the way.
Probably best if you visit everyone's blogs directly to check out their photos (I'll keep updating the links as everyone posts):

I managed to come away from the meet-up with only one new piece of fabric (a beautiful batik print Egyptian cotton), one swapped piece of rayon jersey, and a few patterns. But I am having some serious not-buyer's remorse for leaving behind that gorgeous black and white polka-dotted microfibre at LA Fabrics. Jogoda: did you go back and get some??
