It was a rainy Saturday evening in New York City and everyone must have been on the street or in a cab because it took me over 40 minutes to get there in a cab and *mumble mumble* dollars for the cab...but it was so worth it!
I have pictorial proof ~
Jennifer (Workroom Social) deep in conversation
Sonja (Gingermakes) making a point!
I was so pysched to meet Ojolly who knits the most amazing pieces!
Carol - who made her amazing dress, Wanett (Sown Brooklyn)
and Suzanne (Beau Baby)
and a selfie of me and Fleur who kept telling me
to look up - and NOW I understand what she means!
I met the most lovely woman, Carol from Chicago, who has a blog that of course she told me the name of and of course in a senior moment I've forgotten. We were having the best conversation when I turned around to say something to someone else and ended up half the party away from you. I turned around to find you again and you were gone! So if you read this, please leave a comment in the notes section, I really want to meet up before you leave NYC!
As you can see the event was well attended! At times the noise level was blasting from so many awesome conversations taking place, that I had to lean in to hear the person I was talking to. It was also interesting to see the passerbys stop and look in to see what was going on! Yes peoples sewing is alive and well in NYC!
I had an amazing time and if you want to see even more pics and have access to Instagram - try #workroomsocialpopup or @workroomsocial.
Afterwards I had dinner with some friends ~ we had such a good time! Hey fried chicken always makes things right, especially when you hadn't eaten all day! Made it home to Jersey about 1:30am but was still in time to see the end of the LA Clippers/Golden State Warriors game! Go Clippers!
I hope if you get an opportunity to attend a class at Workroom Social in Brooklyn or another Workroom Social event that you'll attend! It will be soooo worth it!!!
...as always more later!
