BurdaStyle & Britex – The Perfect Creative Combo

Another year, another BurdaStyle fête . . .

The amount of people traveling from store to store was overwhelming yesterday evening, but Union Square really did look lovely with all of the faerie lights.  My camera does not do them justice, but the trees looked as though they were dripping with diamonds.

And there, right outside Britex, was a line of sewing enthusiasts – my kind of people!  Inside were goodie bags and champagne and sugary sweets for all to enjoy! 

And then there was the fabric.  I dream of someday cavorting through a couture atelier and running my fingers over the rolls of sumptuous fabric.  Until then, Britex will do.  Silk and wool galore!

There were not very many familiar faces, but Meg (my sewing party buddy) was there.  We always manage to end up at the same events - this time we were even wearing matching outfits!  And it was wonderful to meet so many new creative people.

The evening, of course, was all about the new book, Sewing Vintage Modern and its author, Jamie Lau!  And the lovely lady knew my name and the name of this little blog – AAHHH!  How exciting is that!?

Thank you to Britex for hosting this fabulous event and BurdaStyle for another wonderful book launch!  I look forward to the next!


  1. That sounds like such a terrific event! I love the vibrant dress you wore, it looks absolutely beautiful on you (that neckline is perfection!).

  2. So jealous! Everytime I'm in San Francisco (not nearly often enough) I make a pilgrimage to Britex--my favorite fabric store in the world! Looks like a lovely evening.

  3. How fun! Living in southern California, we have lots of fabric store choices, but Britex is always my favorite store and I visit there every year when in the city.

  4. Argggh, I was wondering when they were going to do the SF book launch. Obviously, I missed it. BUMMED.

  5. Oh, I wish I'd known about this! Sounds like an excellent event, and I love going to Britex any chance I get. Alas...
