I had the best time at Sewtopia. Even though it made me sewwww tired. I took a four hour nap on Sunday and I still don’t think I have caught up on my sleep.
This round of Sewtopia took place at the Drake hotel here in Chicago. Talk about beauty! My favorite hotel in Chicago is the Palmer house but the Drake is a very close second.
I made some great new friends and took some fun classes. Classes I wasn’t convinced I would enjoy. Only because I was feeling like a pregnant party pooper that weekend. 😉
So you all saw my new fabric stash from the shop hops and goodies bag- onto the classes!
We were offered two classes. On Friday I took the Molehill class taught by Latifah of Latifah Saafir Studios. I learned how to do curves. Curves aren’t so bad. Give curves a chance. This class was great fun- she has such a nice and calm way of explaining everything.
I don’t think her Molehill pattern is out yet but keep an eye out for it!
On Saturday I took the dreaded Y seams class with Rita Hodge from Red Pepper Quilts. I am super glad she was here all the way from Australia. What a treasure! When I first saw her on Thursday during the sign ins I had a fan girl moment. Taking a class from her was such a gift! She is so sweet and Y seams aren’t so bad.
We worked on the Kansas Dugout quilt pattern- this pattern is free on her blog. Go give it a whirl!
And of course the great bathroom selfie. 31 weeks here.
The next Sewtopia is in Portland and is sold out but the spring Sewtopia is in Atlanta! If you all have the chance to attend I highly suggest it. I had such a great time and made many new friends! 🙂 You can follow along on their Facebook page.
