|Day 3 of PR Weekend Chicago
After the whirlwind of Days 1 and 2, we needed a little break. But after coffee and breakfast, the excitement continued!
We all headed over to Fishman's Fabrics for a Very Special Event!
Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon presented us with a proclamation honoring PatternReview for its 10th Anniversary.
Take a look at the proclamation!
We even got some press coverage by WGN!

Update December 11th, 2011
Chicago Sun finally covered it :)
Lt. Governor Simon is an avid sewer herself. She made the jacket she was wearing, as well as the outfit she wore to her inauguration.
We presented Lt. Governor Simon with an honorary membership to PatternReview and a copy of 1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips. Perhaps if the Lt. Governor gets a break from her duties, she can write a pattern review for PR!
We spent some time shopping for fabric (of course!). And we posed for final pictures before saying our goodbyes.
Another wonderful PR Weekend!
