 Sew much to say--SEW little time!

Hello lovely ladies (and gents): This past weekend, I had the pleasure to attend the Needles and Fashion "Sew Social" hosted by the founder of N&F Jenese Johnson (awesome lady) and her hostess Tasha H.

They both have awesome blogs: Jenese is at Needles and Fashion and Tasha's blog: The Tale Tell Tasha.

These ladies are so genuinely kind, generous with the knowledge. They freely gave us patterns, free fabric, food. The fellowship and meeting like-minded people was priceless.

Ladies came from all over the East Coast: Richmond, Philly, Delaware, and more!

Anyway, I could go on and on, but wanted to share a few general pics. I HIGHLY recommend this event if you're anywhere in the Tri-States or the DMV next year! :-)

Wannasew's on Pinterest!

I've been posting like crazy today! Trying to catch up and do what I can when I can!

We've been on Pinterest for a few months and I told myself I'd NEVER do it.

At first, I had the widget on my phone, I just placed it on the blog (see right column). Lesson learned: Never say never!

Trying to promote sewing

 I'm a 4-H volunteer. 4-H is a part of Cooperative Extension. Cooperative Extension usually falls under a state university. Yesterday was the annual Arlington County Fair. 

I was able to bring my machine and do a little sewing demo. My machine tote worked perfectly! The FREE arm (corrected) worked like a charm! It really came in handy my older machine doesn't have a this feature

What's this: A work in progress!

This makes for a future handbag. I am (suppose) to be testing a  handbag. Got everything, but yet to start (starting today). In bag: 1.5 yards of flannel, 1.5 yards of stiff interfacing and the rest of my fabric I grabbed from my stash. :-). Stay tuned for more!

Wonderful gift

 Sew thankful that a fb sewing buddy blessed me with these patterns! Very kind gesture! (sorry-can't rotate) :-(
