After hours spent planning, emailing and tartan flower crafting, yesterday was the Crafters' Ceilidh Meet Up in Edinburgh. And what a day! Over 20 crafters travelled from Scotland and England to meet, chat and shop.
We met in Frederick's Coffee shop...
Nice view of Roobeedoo's gorgeous cardigan!
Before heading to Princes Street Gardens for photos...
Did You Make That?, Roobeedoo and Scruffy Badger Time smile for the camera. (I can confirm that Karen's coat is just as beautiful in real life as you would expect)
We then hit the Grassmarket for vintage and wool shopping before heading to Edinburgh Fabrics, Mandors, and The Cloth Shop.
House of Pinheiro and myself clutching the fabric we both purchased
We then headed to the sewing cafe for a pattern, fabric and yarn swap...
And finished up at the Voodoo Rooms for dinner.
My highlights were:
- Meeting everyone whose blogs I follow, in real life for the first time.
- Meeting Scottish crafters (and non bloggers)
- Talking about sewing ALL DAY
- Sharing dubious pattern and fabric choices in the swap - a mix of wonderful and weird items with plenty of hilarity.
I had a ball!
