Today I went to the Sydney sewing bloggers meetup, of course at a fabric shop.
Though really it was for bloggers, non bloggers, and in fact anyone interested in sewing whatever the level. Here's a bunch of us at Tessutis. I really enjoyed it, although I flaked a little earlier than I'd have liked.
What I find sort of amusing is that I'm in the older brigade at the meetups we've had. I used to be one of the young sewers, and in the aussie sewing guild I still am, but here I'm one of the older farts. It's still fun whatever your age!
