I have to tell you that it was being sponsored by Westminster Fabrics and Rowan Yarns but it really wasn't all about knitting or quilting. It was about color, inspiration and finding your mojo. This designer is so NOT about quilting and fabrics. He is all about art, and perspective. It was one of the best lectures I have EVER been to. It was inspiring. And by the time we left, I wanted to go buy myself some wool and make myself a sweater too! Who knew you could actually paint, quilt and knit? Hello! I don't knit...what's up with that? I need sonething to do while I wait for the Lunesta to kick in, LOL!
Oh, and I was a total hit with my bright and bold print shirt... I was a primitive lover in disguise...I was disguised as a Kaffe Chick! See how I match the quilt? And see how my shoes match my shirt? Oh, T-Choco has taught me well! And both Kaffe and his sidekick Brandon Mably (Studio Manager of Kaffe Fassett Studio in London England) had nice things to say about my shirt, BM actually came up to me and asked me where I had purchased it (Lane Bryant, ladies!), and if it was new ("Well yes, I just bought it yesterday!").I thought that was so funny. It took me a minute to realize this "guy's" sweater looked just like the ones on the manequins on display all around the room, duh! I think I didn't notice his accent because I was with Joanna and after a while with her you just don't even notice the accent anymore....so here we are, Hey, I had already given him all my shopping tips, he just had to let me take a pic. Oh, and get this, he was posing and when we walked up for our pics he embraced us and there were "OH, we didn't get hugs" from the masses, it was just so funny. We can't help it if we're cute! LOL! It was just a fun time all around.
Now you know, even if you're a primitive lover...there is always something to be learned so step out of your comfort zone and go see the designers when they hit your neighborhood, I bet you too will have a great time. Thanks Joanna for inviting me, and for remembering to take the camera so we could document ourselves, among the stars! LOL!
