|Liberty Fabrics from Sewbox|
Whilst we were waiting for the last few people to turn up Jenna suggested that being as we were in the YMCA building we had to have a YMCA photo...
But we also did a more sensible group photo at the end of the session.
I also took a few photos of everyone hard at work sewing their embellishments on.
We were also given some lovely raffle prizes by Thank you to Korbond, Search Press, Sew La La Fabrics, Celtic Fusion Fabrics and Never Forget , Undomesticated Scientist, Nel Whatmore and Rainbow Disks.
Amazingly we had enough raffle prizes for every single person to win one so a big thank you to everyone who gave a prize.
I was in London for a couple of days before the meet up so decided to go to the Kaffe Fasset exhibition in the London Fashion and Textile Museum. It was a total explosion of colour which showed the inspriation behind his work and how his designs have evolved over the years. The photos below are of his quilts on display at the museum.
I also managed to squeeze in a morning at Liberty (my first ever visit), somehow the hours just flew by whilst I was in there. Such an amazing building full of so many beautfil things. I managed to buy some Kaffe Fassett fabrics and some Joel Dewberry Notting Hill fabrics.

A huge thanks to everyone who came to the London meet up, or sponsored/provided prizes, it was an amazing day.
