I just got back from the BurdaStyle book launch party in San Francisco tonight, and it was AMAZING! It was like seeing all my favorite sewing bloggers come to life in a room filled with crafts, grilled cheese sandwiches, and wood engraving machines (check at the Tech Shop's cool space). I got to know Amy from Sew Well and Laura from Lilacs & Lace (pictured above), chatted with the lovely Mena from Sew Weekly, and met the crew from ModCloth (based in SF!) and BurdaStyle.
Clearly I am geeking out about this, but it's sorta a dream come true for a girl who has, up 'til now, had an entirely internet-based relationship with the sewing community. I am now more determined than ever to get to know more of the local scene. Anyone up for the Alameda Flea Market or a trip to Scrap?
