I am about to get on a plane to head to California for a weekend full of fun fabric shopping and friends. I am so so excited. I’ve been to the Los Angeles Fabric District ages ago by myself (on public transit) but having the opportunity to hang out and shop with over 20 of my favorite creative blogger buddies, you just can’t imagine how much I’ve been looking forward to this weekend! Andrea from The Train to Crazy and Go To Patterns and Justine from Sew Country Chick have been setting us up with some great sponsors and shops to visit.
Michael Levine is a staple in the Los Angeles Fabric District. They have a main store, the upholstry fabric store and the Loft where you can buy fabric by the pound, I’ve heard of people walking out with bags and bags of goodness. Thankfully they have a great online store as well since I’m only taking 2 suitcases. Their online brand is lowpricefabric.com and you’ll love it.
Thank you to Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for sponsoring Fabric Weekend 2013. With all the fabric options I’ve had through the years Jo-Ann is still my go to place since I know I can find exactly what I need.
While I’m there Jessica from The Sewing Rabbit is going to be hosting another Girl’s Night Out. I was lucky enough to attend the one here in Utah that corresponded with Sewing Summit last year and it was a blast! Delicious dinner, good conversation, and meeting other like minded creative folk.
And for those of you Project Runway fans we get to visit Mood Fabrics. I hear that they have a new and improved store in Los Angeles that is stocked full of great apparel fabric. And they have an online shop too so you don’t have to feel left out!
Wish me luck and check in with my Instagram or Twitter I’ll try to post some peeks into the weekend when I can! Check out everyone elses’s pictures too by viewing the hashtag #fabricweekend2013. And check back in tomorrow when I’ll finally be sharing my mermaid pants tutorial!
