A regular stop for me when I visit .- Sawyer Brook Fabrics show room in MA.
Next time, I'm going to ask if I can take pictures inside their show room. Wish I had thought of that. I think I just get so focused on the gorgeous fabric and what will fit in my suitcase. I'm single threaded. Ha!
Here is a highlight - got to see Dixie of With Needle and Brush, who had just returned from Hawaii. Always great to see her and her creations. This time I got to see her Marcy Tilton coat in person. Fab.U.Lous. You can see it better on Marcy's blog but I captured a picture from that post. Can't find where Dixie blogged about it.
This coat is both artful and wearable (very). Wool flannel base with kimono remnants and pieces Dixie silk-screened. Dixie lined the collar with some lovely silk. It must be great to wear.
Lastly, here are a few pix of actual sewing done in New England, as opposed to shopping for sewing in New England:
