Meet up with Busy Lizzie

9 comments

Two sewing blogger meet ups in a week = an awesome week! My second meet up was with Liz aka Busy Lizzie. She e-mailed me to ask about fabric shops in the area and I suggested we get together for drinks! Unfortunately, the wine bar was closed, but luckily the ice cream shop across the street was open. We chatted over ice cream (Me, Motoroil. Liz, Strawberry Chocolate) for about an hour discussing sewing, knitting, and traveling. I had a blast and made a new friend! :)

On another note, I love the fact that I live between San Francisco and Los Angeles because it's perfect for meet ups. If you are doing any summer road trips and plan on being in the San Luis Obispo area let me know! We can get wine or ice cream!

    As soon as I learn how to drive a standard (when we moved abroad we kept the newer car, my husband's, which happens to be a manual) I'm driving down! It would be so much fun. And I'm totally up for wine AND ice cream :)

    Sounds like you had a lively time - I would love to meet up with fellow UK bloggers more often, but would need more hours in the day (boo!)

  8. Apparently there is a meetup of some sort this weekend in LA. Called Fabric Weekend 2013. I'm struggling to find an itinerary for it though :( But I initially read about it here: http://lilbitandnan.blogspot.com/2013/05/fabric-weekend-2013-girls-night-out-2013.html

  9. I actually live in your neck of the woods - I'm in Santa Barbara, but I worked in Santa Maria for years (for PCPA). I was excited to see another sewist on the Central Coast on Map the Sewintists! I've been doing some work in LA recently and had the pleasure of meeting up with some LA bloggers, it's too fun to talk in real life about sewing!
