I want to hang out with you in Los Angeles!

41 comments

Whenever I read about the sewing blogger meet ups that are organized in London or New York I get super jealous. I want to hang out with other ladies that sew too! Well, I'm going to get my chance on Saturday, June 14th.

Kathy, Jill, Laurie, and I have been scheming for the last month and have decided to organize a get-together for the ladies in southern California. We are going to meet up at 11:30 at the restaurant next to The Fabric Store, Cafe Midi, and have lunch, do a pattern/fabric swap (if you want to), and talk sewing. Afterwards we are going to The Fabric Store and then Mood for some shopping. If you are in the area I hope you will join us!

Just a couple of FYI things: you don't have to join us for lunch, although we hope you do! You can always join in for the shopping part of it, however I don't have an exact time on when we will be done eating. If you DO decide to join for lunch please comment on this post or e-mail me to let us know. I'm going to make reservations for Cafe Midi a week beforehand, so if you could please e-mail me before June 7th I would really appreciate it.




Feel free to post the button above (designed by Kathy) on your blog to spread the word :)

Hope to shop and buy some fabric with you! xo

    I have no talent for sewing, but taught myself the basics when I inherited a bunch of patterns/ fabric from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s from my mother-in-law.

  15. Yay, it's about time for an LA meetup! I always had the feeling there are more sewists in Southern California than it seems like, but I've only met a handful. I live in Santa Barbara, and by next month I'll be way overdue for a LA fabric trip, not to mention getting to know some fellow bloggers! Count me in! I'd love to meet you all!

  31. I don't have a blog, but read all y'all's stuff and am always jealous of the east coast's meetups. I'll be coming up from San Diego and spending either Friday or Saturday night. I'd be up for getting a suite to help with swapping space, though it may be a few miles from there. Anyway, I'm in for lunch and shopping!
