This weekend was our second Bay Area Sewists Meetup of the year. Chuleenan hosted another great event, this time involving a fabric swap. And GUYS, I've been hoarding fabric for a swap for months!
On Saturday, I dragged my two bins of fabric to the Berkeley Public Library, and came home with only one bin. I consider that a success! And I saved myself a good chunk of change by not joining the group at Stone Mountain afterwards. Another win!
I loved seeing some of the same people from last time, and we were joined by a few new faces. Sometimes I got so distracted chatting that I almost forgot to grab my fabrics.
Sara took home the remnants from my flower pants, and Loran got a few yards of some green silk that I had lying around, hinting something about the Mad Men Challenge. I can't wait to see what they make! And Jana, who snagged some of my old wallpaper fabric, has already made a bag!

If you haven't joined us yet, next month is a show and tell and tour of fabric and lace shop Lacis!
