The Sewing Directory Meet up!

Yep it's only taken me a week to sit down and finally write this post but hey things never change!
Last Saturday I spent a wonderful afternoon in the company of an amazing and talented bunch of ladies at The Sewing Directory London Meet up. Travelling down to London I was excited and nervous (I'm never great at mingling!) but when I was greeted by the lovely Fiona I knew I was in for a wonderful afternoon with friendly like minded crafty peeps!
We spent the afternoon chatting, sewing and drooling over the gorgeous Liberty fabrics that the lovely Sue from Sewbox had provided. Jenna from Sew Happy Geek gave us a quick tute on how to make the fab notebook covers that she had bought with her and off we went! We were provided with all we needed and I managed to do a bit of stitching amongst the chatting, cakes and tea!
It was a lovely surprise to receive great little goodie bags from Sue and then she offered us more Liberty fat quarters to take home at the end of the day! There was also a raffle and luckily enough everyone went home with a prize and I was lucky girl to win this gorgeous Geo Grand Fabric by Daisy Janie!
It was a great afternoon meeting new people and Instagram and Blogging peeps in person!
Thanks again to Fiona for a wonderful afternoon, Jenna for the tute and inspiration and Sue for the wonderful fabrics! Following photos borrowed from Fiona :)
This Saturday I didn't have so much fun getting the car MOT'ed!
