All of the knicker seamstresses, minus our host Winnie the photographer
What a weekend! I was lucky enough to meet up with some fantastic sewing bloggers this Saturday, for a day of sewing chat, swaps and knicker making. Our venue was Bath and our host the lovely Scruffy Badger. Bath isn't particularly close to Glasgow, but I was able to use the meet up as an opportunity to stay with family nearby and catch up with them too, which was also lovely.
In attendance on Saturday were:
- Winnie from Scruffy Badger Time
- Rachel from House of Pinheiro
- Roisin from Dolly Clackett
- Jane from Handmade Jane
- Melizza from Pincushion Treats
- Shivani from Pins and Needles
- Amy from Magpie Mimi
- Tamsin from Pimp my Curtains.
- Laura from Laura in a Tangle
- Dibs from Dibs and the Machine
- Sheena from Tottieweeminiatures

Amy and Dibs. Dibs REALLY loved that pattern - I hope we see a version of it from you soon, Dibs!
Then it was on to the lovely Makery for some stitching.
Our pants fabric was pre-cut for us, so we got to choose trims and learned the tricky skill of attaching the elastic

The day absolutely flew in and I had such a lovely time. It was fantastic to catch up with sewing blogger friends and to meet other bloggers who I have been reading for ages. Plus I learned how to make pants!! I am pretty impressed with what I made - they are not perfect and I still have to 'road test' them for a whole day of wear, but I am definitely going to be making some more.
Thanks so much Winnie for organising a great day - I had a fantastic time
