Fabric Weekend 2013 + Girl's Night Out - Los Angeles.

So why am I standing there in our garden making awkward poses in my new dress?

Because I am going to this:

And this:


YES, it says Los in California, as in this next weekend, as in meeting over twenty other sewing bloggers for a weekend full of fabric shopping and fun and as in WOW I am excited!
It is my first time going to any type of blogger arrangement and I am not going to lie....I think I might be a bit star struck meeting all these amazing bloggers. Some of which I was already loving and some new ones to love.
SO what does a designer and seamstress do to prepare herself for a situation like this? Makes a new dress of course! The awkward faces hopefully stays home in the garden in front of the camera!
If you want to read more about the dress you can see my former posts HERE and HERE.

There are some amazing sponsors on board for this arrangement:

Michael Levine is a staple in the Los Angeles Fabric District. Between their main store, the upholstry fabric store and the Loft where you can buy fabric by the pound, you will always walk away with bags of fabric you can't wait to use. Thankfully they have a great online store as well. Their online brand is and you'll love it.

Joann logo
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Even in a fabric heaven like Los Angeles you still know you can find exactly what you need at Jo-Anns.

Mood logo
Mood Fabrics has a new and improved store in Los Angeles that is sure to excite anyone interested in apparel fabric. Their online store is also new and improved! 
And YES Mood is the shop we always see the designers get their supplies from in Project Runway!

Seriously!!! I can't wait!!
