So Saturday, May 5th is a red letter day for me...because another one came off the list...and I have photographic proof:
We came in the back way
The trims and pattern area
The main room - the main one I shopped in!
Loved this display!
The vase is felted.
My haul is only 9 pieces and it consists of a little silk,
a little linen, a little boucle and some rayons.
My guides were Cennetta, who authors the blog, The Mahogany Stylist, and Patti F., who is the President-Elect of the Haute Couture Club of Chicago.
My box of fabric goodies will be winging it's way to me later this week and I can't wait to get them! Not only was Vogue Fabrics a fabulous experience but having Cennetta and Patti along made it even more so. I even met Pearl who travels to the expos and had cut some fabric for me from the Vogue Fabric booth at the Worcester Expo several years ago.
I was in town for the Haute Couture Fashion Show which I will post about later. I just got home and I'm tired. Flying into and out of O'Hare this weekend was a trip itself and reinforced why I hate to fly. Late flights, rude passengers and hours wasted waiting in airports is not my idea of how to vacation. Thank goodness I flew JetBlue with Even More Legroom and faster security checks since some carriers at O'Hare were still trying to get people out from last night's thunderstorms today...
...as always, more later!
