You'll just have to believe me when I tell you the food was delicious, the setting gorgeous, the company wonderful and the designers amazing.
Why? Because I as too busy stitching to take photo's! (oh and chatting, eating...)
Chocolate pebbles - Giant smarties these were the best.
There was a bowl of these on every table.
The directions on our goody bags - I think they forgot something - eating and shopping were both popular!
The goody bags contained gorgeous patterns from each of the designers - Melly, Jodie and Annette, along with locally made chocolates, soaps and some stitchy goodies.
Fabric, thread and even a needle to get started. There were thread snippers, a tape measure and transfer pen also.
The evidence - eating was not the only thing I managed to get done, I did some stitches too. A little cutie from Jodie.
I could not resist a couple of treats for me - the Melly & Me Sleepover bag pattern and a kit for the Bucket the gingerbread man adorns. Too cute.
We all received a fabric postcard to decorate prior to the event which we left at the door on the way in.
At the end of the day we got to pick one from the basket. Thanks Katie.
A fantastic way to spend Saturday.
Thanks to Merrilyn of Threadneedle Crafts and Zoe of Purl's Palace.
