WIP Wednesday: Sewing Summit Prep

It’s been all about prepping for Sewing Summit around here this week. And I’m not even talking about all the work Elizabeth and I have done for the class we’re teaching together!

Soon-to-be lounge pants

I got this adorable flannel for half-off at Joann’s the other day. Can’t wait to make myself some foxy lounge pants in Jana’s class.

Maxi skirt fabric

This charcoal heather knit will soon become a maxi skirt in Leanne Barlow’s class. I’m just glad to finally have this fabric in my hot little hands—I ordered it from Fabric.com on September 21, and they didn’t ship it until yesterday. And that was only after I made a threatening phone call demanding that they overnight it, or else. What is up with them lately??

Curves mini quilt fabric

I picked out this happy stack for the Curves Mini Quilt class with Christina of The Sometimes Crafter. Most of these prints are from Art Gallery’s fun new line, Floressence, paired with a texty background print from Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater.

Shapes and Angles pieces
Last but not least, I can’t wait to learn how to machine-piece hexagons, partial seams, equilateral triangles, and more with my friends Kati and Faith. For their class, I’m using some of the yummy new Kona colors, like Carrot, Citrus, Peapod, and Azalea.

I’m off to Salt Lake City later today, and I’m really looking forward to seeing friends both old and new! So if you’re attending Sewing Summit, I would love for you to introduce yourself. I’ll be hanging out in the sewing room during open sewing time most nights, and I would like nothing better than to see some of your WIPs in person instead of on a computer screen for once! So don’t be shy. 🙂 For those who didn’t get into my Foundation Paper Piecing class with Elizabeth, I’ll be doing a short informal class on foundation piecing in the sewing room on Thursday night at around 10 p.m.—come join in!

And even if you won’t be at Sewing Summit, you can still share. Here are the linky rules:

1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab my WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links. Because what fun is a linky party without comments? : )

Can’t wait to see some of you in Salt Lake City! Safe travels!

    Looks like lots of fun! Have a safe trip & I so wish I could be there to meet everybody. I'm looking forward to hearing all about it from everybody next week, even though it's going to make me even more bummed that I couldn't make it!

    I wonder if fabric.com has someone that reads all the blogs, because this is like the 5th or 6th time I've heard about people being unhappy with them, not including me. I hope they get their act together…they're becoming the Walmart of fabric shopping. Low prices, but low quality customer service. Sadface. I almost bought that fox fabric for PJs too! How funny. After I see yours, I'm sure I'll have to go buy it after all. 🙂

    I know what you mean about fabric.com, I ordered fabric from them for that class too as soon as the classes were booked, and it took them 2 weeks to tell me they didn't have the fabric in stock (which was showing as plenty when I ordered) Grrr. Anyway, looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    I love that you called and threatened Fabric.com! You tell them! 🙂 I haven't ordered from them in a while, but they are pretty crazy sometimes.

    Have fun at SS and give everyone a hug for me! I'll be missing you guys, and I'm sure you'll all do a fabulous job teaching!! 🙂

    See you…tomorrow! Eeek! I recently had to call Fabric.com and demand they overnight me 22 yards of linen. Because they sent me two yards of FAKE FUR. Not the same!!

    Wow – looks like SS is really changing how their classes run. Awesome to make and bring home so many projects! SO jealous… I will miss having a reunion with all you girls. Have fun… and like I told Elizabeth, pick up a corset apron pattern for me! 🙂
