Yesterday was my meetup with Patricia of the Red Cardinal blog. I had the chance to show her my two favourite Sydney fabric stores in person and talk fabric and art and sewing and everything. Through the magic of blogging something strange but wonderful happens. If you like someone through their blog somehow when you meet the words and the camaraderie and the sheer connection with them just flows.
We went to The Fabric Store first. She liked it hehe.. and then on to Tessuti
I don't know why I expected someone tall. She is a shorty pants like me!
In front of the two sided great cube of buttons at Tessuti, and near their red lounge that is good for collapsing on while making up one's mind on the delicious dilemma on what to purchase. We leafed through the Vogue and found that between us we have what seemed like 80% of their featured dress patterns...
I wasn't letting go of my fabric.
My booty. At the centre is the lovely Red Bird brooch that Patricia gave me. Did I mention that she is lovely in person? Underneath it is some DKNY knit from The Fabric Store for a dress for my Mum. To the right is a colorful knit remnant and to the left is a piece of pure silk and silk lining, extravagantly expensive by my standards, for a pre-Christmas engagement party dress, all from Tessuti.
Thanks for a nice day Patricia. I enjoyed being your partner in
