The Ladies of Sew Fresh Fabrics!
Look who I got to meet yesterday! Peg is on the left and Becca is on the right. They are the ladies of Sew Fresh Fabrics and they kindly invited the Boston Modern Quilt Guild into their shop space yesterday for a little shopping. I didn't get to talk to Peg much (my fault, I am shy and not exactly outgoing) but did talk with Becca a bit and she is just as nice in person as she is in her Etsy convos.
We knew that we had found the right building when we were greeted with this view at the top of a set of stairs.
There are Japanese fabrics on the right and organics on the left. I love the way the photo makes it look like the end of the hall is glowing. It's as if the road to heaven is paved with Japanese and organic fabrics!
Inside their space, there are piles of fabrics everywhere! This is the Kona section.
I thought that it would be less difficult to shop in person but it was overwhelming! I came away with plenty though. Here is a selection of things I picked up for the Sew Out Loud QAL.
Then we headed to the local library for our Boston Modern Quilt Guild meeting. It was a brief meeting because of the shopping excursion. We had show and tell and I even remembered to take pictures this time but my camera was set to have the flash off and I didn't realize it. All the pictures ended up blurry so I don't have any to share.
We surprised our president with a baby shower. She received some adorable handmade gifts. She doesn't know if she is having a boy or a girl so we made gender neutral items. I made these booties.
It was a nice afternoon and my first time out of the house in a couple of weeks except for trips to the foodstore or doctor's office. I think everyone is finally healthy here for the moment though. Phew!
