Sewing Meetup with Kyle!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking Kyle around town to see the sewing sights of San Diego. When we were in SF for Pattern Review Weekend in April, she let me know she would be in town and asked if we could meet up. That was a no brainer, of course! Since she was staying in La Jolla, we met at Gwen Couture, a small fabric store/sewing class/dressmaker shop nearby. The fabric selection is small, but very well curated. I came away with a mesh like knit. I’m thinking a swingy tank top for a night out.
Kyle bought a few things there and had them shipped home.
Then we went to Discount Fabrics near Mission Bay. I haven’t been there since Susan took me there a year ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. I found a stretch lace for a casual top and two coordinating gingham/seersucker fabrics for my niece’s birthday presents this year.
We had lunch at a nearby barbecue place and talked about sewing, independent pattern companies and our stable of machines. All in all, it was a fun day.
I am stealing the picture of us at Gwen Couture from Kyle’s Twitter account.
I am working on my mom’s Mother’s day present and my Gatsby dress this week. Wish me luck. I’m gonna need it!
