#NYlon2014 Meet-Up


Last Saturday I attended a sewing meet-up in London for the first time. I was one of 71 sewists taking part in the amazing meet-up arranged by Rachel.

We took over the V&A, and then took over the Goldhawk Road!

Before the meet-up I was paired with the lovely Ingrid for the name-tag swap. Ingrid made me an amazing tag inspired by my love of Star Trek.

I made Ingrid a mini dress name tag.

Due to lots of nattering about sewing I didn’t actually spent that long shopping, but I did get three lovely fabrics all of which are going to become dresses! I could not resist that Doraemon fabric. I’ve never seen one before but the shop actually had three different Doraemon fabrics.

  1. It was lovely meeting you! You found some pretty amazing fabrics!

  2. Great fabric purchases!! The meet-up sounds like it was really good fun; the name tag is a lively memento.

  3. I can’t wait to see what you do with your fabric, especially the middle one because I’ve got some of that too!

  4. J’adore that pansy fabric! I remember now I saw it and like it (but was trying to be good! Ha!)
