Some people sewed deep into the night, I did not. I went to bed at 23:00 h because I know that for 20 stitches I sew after 23:00 I will have to remove 15. Still, I managed to sew five garments (of which three tests, so I can not tell you anything about those yet). This skirt was the last item I sewed. I had received half a meter of Riley Blake fabric in a raffle on Saturday night and while wondering what to sew with it, a few suggested a skirt.
I do not often sew skirts, not often at all. I often get second hand skirts so I never had the need to sew one. This piece of fabric seemed to be perfect for a skirt though, so I led my creative juices flow and winged myself fun little skirt. I did not have a pattern, the wifi had gone down, and I did not have much time left, but I am very satisfied with the result. My middle one will be the true owner, but she was to sick to model.
During the weekend we sewed over 80 garments, we could have started a small shop. Our sewing space kind a looked like a sweat shop, we had brought so many machines!
We got a goodie bag filled with discount codes and haberdashery (I had to use a translater for this one, in Dutch we say "fournituren"): Compagnie M, Veritas, Straight Grain, Stof op Zolder, Petite Couture, Laviebbel, Roos en Violet, Babarum, Fairy Tailors, Stofuiltje, De Bonte Boom, Zonen09, Nominette, Fournituren.nl, Stof Renke, Bobby Sewing , Kokette Katinka, Ateljee P, Stoff.be en Cas en Nina
- Other fun stuff and fabric from: De Banier, Den Depot, Van Marieke, Soft Cactus, Modecoupon, Stoffenmie, La Maison Victor, Klijntje, Knipmode, LanaLotta , Finch Fabrics
The picture below was taken by Dominique, my bag was a little bit different. I forgot to take a pic of the content, before I showed my gifts to the kids, they all confiscated some stuff. Davina wrote a detailed post about the content of the goodie bag.
I already had the magazines, so if you are interested in getting them, just leave a comment. If more people are interested, I will come up with a distribution method.
Forgive me my inelegant pose, I was the one running back for the timer. Thanks girls, for the lovely weekend! In case you are interested who went with us (from top left to right bottom): Stephanie, Aukje, Gabriela, Katrien, Sabrina, Isabel, Elke, Sofie, Hanne, Katrien, Rebecca, Marie-Paule, Dominique, Joyce, Davina, Caroline, Griet and Lindsey.
