I went by myself which was a big deal, even though I am a pretty out going person. This was my first experience going to a crafty event like this and I was nervous! Would there be anyone for me to talk to? Would I stand in a corner alone and be a sad sack? Would everyone else know each other except me and I would be that one crazy fan?
I stood outside of the Sewing Studio on 29th and 7th (my old stomping ground back when I went to FIT...it brought back a lot of memories) took some deep breaths and said to myself "I am crafty, creative and nice. It will be a good night!"
Let me tell you I had so much fun.

When I got home though, I realized I had forgotten to take any pictures! Dag nab it! Then, low and behold, when I checked Gertie's Blog yesterday....THERE I WAS!!!!! (Can you tell I am excited about this? I don't all -caps-bold for nothing!)
It was is an honor to be pictured on Gertie's blog, but even more so to meet all of those wonderful people. Every one there cares passionately about creativity, and craft which is really neat. It's not everyday someone asks you if you used your walking foot to match the plaid or how you basted your seams. I can't wait till my next event.
