I can't quite remember what possessed me to
And am I ever glad I got to join in the best meet-up evah. Just look at the undeniable photographic evidence:

|Jennifer, me, Clio, Rachael and Devra managed one group photo (Kitty Wong Photography)|
|iPhone snaps from the Tea Room at the V&A (from whence we were evicted not once, but twice)|
Then we broke off into smaller groups and headed to Goldhawk Road:

|I bought almost all my fabric at Classic Textiles and the African Wax shop across the street|
|Swimming ladies cotton lining, silver stretch denim, 2X liberty prints and prawn wax cotton.|
|Stopping to refuel, followed by more shopping|
|Then we went to the pub for some food….|
|…and more drinks…..|

(The rest of the photos are being withheld to protect the innocent.)
Rachael posted a roundup with Kitty Wong's great photos, attendee names and blogs, and a google survey to share more information about yourself. Go check it out!
And finally, if you really want to know why I go to all the meet-ups I can, read Devra's perfect summary here. It's not about buying fabric: we can do that anywhere. It's about the great group of authentic people that you get to know in real life, sometimes better than those you see everyday.
See you next year for #NYLon2015?
