New York, The Sewing City that Never Sleeps

Ok. So by now most of you have probably read the posts on the blogs of the other (more popular) meetup members. But, it was too great a time to NOT post about it here! To show just how much this group of peeps has to come mean to me, I will steal use their pictures for this post. Isn’t that a lovely tribute?? I thought you’d agree.

First up, this snap Peter took of Oona, Sonja, Suzanne and I just before the feeding frenzy started. Well right as it was starting anyway.

Oona’s pic shows just how punchy we became before Peter dashed off.

These two from Suzanne’s blog show the madness that ensued after he left and ultimately led to those big appetites. Let me tell you, climbing stairs, roaming isles and tossing around those heavy bolts (while using all your brain power to resist Oona’s Jedi-Fabric-Mind-Tricks) takes it out of you! Mood is HUGE! They could do cardio and weight training in the place! You could lie down and nap and no one would stumble across you for hours, lol.

You get a tiny glimpse of Kendrell,  just one of the fearless Mood employees brave enough to come to our aide. I believe some of the customers expected a camera crew to be filming us what with all the racket and mess we made.

I am still amazed at how much fun it is to get together and pet fabric, and gab (about EVERY topic under the sun) and grub with the sewing masses! I hope it’s always this awesome!

It’s 10pm so, of course, I’m just now getting the urge to sew, lol. I’m going to put on Lebowksi and get stuck into the fabric I got from 21st Century Fabric’s the place with the best bargain bin in the district.

Be sure to read Oona’s, Peter’s, Sonja’s and Suzanne’s posts if you haven’t already. And comment on the Beau Baby’s couture!

It’s my intention to use both as a way to record things that I don’t necessarily want to or have time to blog about here. It’s fun to post on Instagram and get that instant feedback from others there or on twitter. I enjoy looking at and commenting on other member’s photos, as well. I love to find new blogs and members to follow by clicking the links of those who comment on photos that show up in my stream.

I’ve used the tumblr blog to record my musings on the summer, so far. I like the stream of conciousness posting that I use there. Some things will be cross-posted, but, more often than not, I will leave those journal entries there.

Are any of you on instagram or tumblr? Care to share your handle so I can follow you?
