And why wouldn't you when we spent the weekend ...
... embroidering fabric,
... endlessly discussing the merits of fabric (at Patchwork on Central Park, East Malvern),
... sewing fabric to make skirts and quilts,
... watching fabric being screen printed (at the amazing studio of ink and spindle who did a one off print run of this gorgeous chocolate coloured bamboo for us
... quilting fabric (can you believe this quilt was sewing up, had binding added and was quilted in a day? I'm still amazed),
... drooling over goodies made with fabric (at the amazing Nicole Mallalieu Studio in Brunswick),
... perplexed about which fabric to buy (Sheridan, the fabric convention organiser, deep in thought at Amitie in Bentleigh)
... and fortunately doing it with 60 other like minded women because it's so much more understandable when more than one person is doing it!
Thanks guys for a great weekend. I had a blast and I can't wait to catch up again.
(PS What did you tell people? I'm curious as I'd love something better to say next time ... because yes, I'm thinking of going to Sew It Together 2011 in Sydney).
