PatternReview Day Meetup in A Fabric Place in BaltimoreBy DianeSev on 12/18/12 2:58 PM

PR Day at A Fabric Place - group shot

Picture by Tee Jones Actie

Yesterday after work I headed over to A Fabric Place in Mt. Washington for the Pattern Review birthday party. Eleven years! Crazy, right?

I was lucky enough to meet several new-to-me sewists in the area, including Tee Jones Actie of Dressed to a Tee, whose photo I’m using (above). It was wonderful meeting so many new sewists who regaled me with stories of all the fabric stores that Baltimore used to have. They even talked about when you could buy fabric at the local Epstein’s Department Store. I also have a bug in my ear now to join Maryland ASG.

I’m wearing my Burda Melton Wool Trench from three years ago. I love this coat (despite the less than flattering photo. I really need to work on my posture).  I didn’t get to wear it much last year since it wasn’t terribly cold in Baltimore. I’m wearing it all the time this season! And, I’ve gotten multiple comments from people on the street every time I wear it. I can’t tell you how great that feels.

I’ve been thinking about making another coat. Something knee length without a vent in the back. For weekends and when I don’t need my legs as covered for work. But, my dilemma is color. I want a pale blue or cream coat which means I would spend every week at the dry cleaners! I also lack for time to really dedicate as I did for this coat. Oh, well. There’s always next year!

Dilemma...... Go to a local event or travel to a distant one to meet even more new friendly sewists? You all look like such an inviting friendly group. Hope you have many opportunities to get together in the future. Thank you for sharing Baltimore's PR Day.
