Grande finale

Most of you will have seen the posts of NancyK and Robin and our meeting in New York. Last Monday to me was the ‘grande finale’ of my holiday in the US, meeting Robin, Nancy and Lindsay T. Unfortunately Carolyn was not able to join for lunch as work appointments got in the way.

These pictures are from Nancy and Robin, as I just forgot to make many pictures.

This picture is one of the few of my own, Nancy’s hair is really very stylish on her and compliments her face perfectly. Robin, I forgot to tell you how much I liked your necklace.

As if meeting up with these great ladies wasn't enough on its own, Robin had made a fitting appointment with Kenneth King at his studio in New York and invited me to join her. What a wonderful opportunity! Here is a picture of him fitting Robin's coat. I had made a muslin of a Burda jacket, and he changed something in the back to fit me that was an eyeopener to me. More on my project later.

After the fitting session we met Nancy and Lindsay for lunch, and of course went shopping. I bought a few fine fabrics and notions and was completely exhausted at the end of the day. THANK YOU so much Nancy, Robin and Lindsay, to make my trip to NY so very, very special.

It was special for me too. What fun! Being able to talk sewing and fitting and not have peoples eyes glaze over is such a treat and of course we all speak the same language when it comes to sewing. I am looking forward to seeing how your jacket comes out and how KK's change affects the final outcome. I'd love to see the back next to an older jacket and see how it's different.

What a grand finale, too! I missed all of you by just a day or so - we were in NYC on Tuesday and ran into LindseyT at Mood. Glad you had a great time.

A lovely end to your trip, it is always such fun meeting up with our virtual friends. I'm interested to hear more about the KK fitting too.

It was a wonderful experience going to Kenneth's studio with you Sigrid. I learned so much and I look forward to seeing your project unfold. I am so inspired now!

Your trip was inspiring to me, too. I bet it took a lot of planning. But, it's good to be back home, too, I imagine :)

Summerset, that is so cool you ran into LindsayT at Mood!
Vicki, Ann, Allison ... we must find ways to hop to other continents!!
