A Gathering ~

(This wasn't all of the attendees, some had left by the time we took the picture)

#wineandcheesewithkashi has become an annual event. This year though it was merged with the #NYSewcialisthour so there wouldn't be two events occurring in the same week.  Well that was my thinking! *LOL* Anyway, we had a great turnout.  Sewists from the NY Tri-State area came to shop, sip and talk. There were a lot of great fabrics pulled, ooohhhed and aaahhhed over and purchased.

I will admit to walking away with two shirting fabrics myself. I think everyone had a good time and thanks to everyone who came through!

A Meet-up ~
Meg from Cookin' and Craftin' reached out to me this summer about meeting up when she visited NYC in September for a wedding. I follow Meg's blog and her IG account and love what she sews. I was also interested in the fact that she spent the last couple of years living in Thailand. So being my nosey self I said yes...even though she was only available to meet on a Friday and I work from home on Fridays. 

I'm so thrilled that I came to work that Friday because Meg is as amazing in person as she is on her social media accounts.  We ended up having lunch with Claire - domesticcoquinette.  We were talking so much while walking around the fabric stores, that we decided to just sit and talk!

However, we did make it to Mood, and met Marcy at the elevators as we were leaving! Fortuitious! It's the only photo of the day because we were enjoying each other's company so much.

Please don't forget the fabric discounts and this one last opportunity to enter the giveaway.  The giveaway ends at 11:59pm EST and the fabric discounts end at midnight PST.  These are the last offers for National Sewing Month for 2017. always more later!


  1. I had such a good time at wine & cheese with Kashi - I might have brought 2 pieces of fabric home. It was fun to meet new to me people. September was a fun month with Diary of a Sewing Fanatic - thank you for doing this. I know it was a lot of work. g

  2. All that beautiful fabric! How ever do you see all the rolls (way up high too), to find a piece you like!? I would be overwhelmed, but drinking wine and having a fabulous time with all you wonderful women.

  3. Wine and cheese with Kashi looks like so much fun! I'll have to schedule a visit to NYC for the next one ;-)

    It was so much fun to spend some time with you and Claire! I really didn't buy much - too busy chatting!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated!
