Sunday in Cabramatta

Last Sunday Beverley of On The road to Sew Wear held a blogger meet for Lynn of You Sew Girl who is visiting Australia from Michigan (links at the end of post). A small bunch of sewists ate and fabric shopped their way through Cabramatta, a predominantly Vietnamese suburb of Sydney that has lots of material shops.

Sharon, Maria aka Velosewer, Lynn, me, Alison and Wendy

and Beverley.

Handmade pottery buttons made by Lynn, which she gave away as presents

Lynn also makes pottery mugs

  1. It was great to meet you Val.

  2. Those meetups are the best. It brings back goodo memories from my meetups with you and Lynn as well.

  3. Looks like a great meetup - do show us what you bought! Love the pottery buttons, and you look very chic in your black/white. Off to check out those blogs now.

    1. Did that bulging bag give me away? I bought some black lycra and lurid lime green snake print lycra for exercise gear (I am hitting the gym again), and two pieces of knit in Indigo and purple, favourite colours of my DD.

  4. It's lovely to put faces to names, isn't it? Thank you for posting the pics.

  5. It was a wonderful day and so good to meet you Val and to show Lynn another side of Sydney.

  6. It was a great day and wonderful to meet you. Sorry for the delay in commenting - I have been flat chat working - now I am finished and back to blogging. Glad you enjoyed the day.

  7. It looks like it was great day.
