sew and sew

Last Friday Harley Chick, her Aunt Pat and I made our annual April pilgrimage to the Sew Expo in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Last year's adventure.

Last year’s adventure.

We look forward to it all year.  This year, though, our youngest seamstress didn’t attend.  It turned out she had prior kindergarten commitments.

Yes, five year olds can have commitments.

We missed her.

It rained (it often does).  But we didn’t get lost (sometimes we do).  And we found some things we just had to buy (of course we did).

I bought Star Wars fabric.  Lots and lots of it.  Because I’m sure my grandson will need another  Star Wars quilt.  Some of this even glows in the dark!

How could I resist???

2015-04-19 008 2015-04-19 009 I also bought a pair of the world’s smallest scissors for $2.00.

And then there was the set of rulers.  Because they guaranteed the perfect 1/4″ seam and I am forever trying to perfect the 1/4″ seam.

No, really.  I’m serious.  This is important.

They have some kind of rare rubber on the back that makes them stick to the sewing machine and is only found in the USA.  These are made in Oregon, in the family garage.  GO USA!!!

You can check them out here:

Aunt Pat bought a wallet pattern to add to her collection of bag patterns.

Harley Chick bought Elsa (of Frozen fame) fabric to make a little girl’s sundress.

We also tried a new restaurant which specialized in tacos!

Taco salad!

We’ve decided we need to find a sewing event in November, because once-a-year just isn’t enough.

Maybe we should create our own Shop Hop.

With lunch.
