I had been looking forward to the Yorkshire Spoolettes meet up in Dewsbury for ages. Especially as I was unable to attend the last one.
Ali from Thimberlina had organised this very successful event and herded us around Dewsbury for the day.
Of course I wore my new Coco.
It was definitely weird to meet and chat to ladies you’ve only ever seen on the screen. On a screen people seem only 2D. It was like seeing the stars of our blogging world come to life! It was so good to find out that the ladies were exactly the same as they came across on their blogs.
In all 19 of us met for coffee and chats in a cafe in Dewsbury before venturing out into the latest storm to pass over the British Isles.
Our first stop was a trims stall in the market. Do you ever get over-faced with a huge selection of goods and come away with only spending pennies?
With the weather worsening we headed over to Fabworks where I was able to part with more than a few pennies!
This is myself and Hila. Recognize the fabric anyone?
I think you might see this fabric turning up on Hila’s blog😉
Fabworks had been warned we were coming and had even put on more staff to serve us!
After we had dragged ourselves away we headed to Lucky Fashions who had extra staff and coffee and biscuits for us!!
Note the Lucky Fashions picture is one from the summer!
There was one more shop to go but quite honestly I was fabricked out and was looking forward to a glass of wine!
I wasn’t the only one to welcome the bargain of a free alcoholic drink with every main meal at Wetherspoons!
I had a great day. There were 5 or six ladies who I converse with often over our blogs so it was lovely to finally meet them. And I have a bunch of new blogs to follow too.
Ali is hosting a giveaway of a £25 voucher for Fabworks if you would like to head across to her by the 14th February.
This is my haul. A surprisingly coordinated mixture of stretch, viscose and cotton.
So at an average rate of one make per month that’s me sorted for the next 6 months!
Love, Lucie xx
