Some weeks ago I had a fantastic weekend in London, I meet 14 amazing fellow sewing bloggers from Europe. The Sew social meeting around Europe was an idea from Annika -author of the blog naeh-connection– and Gioia -author of the blog Dotta Sews -, and the first meet up was last year in Paris .

It wasnt your average weekend in the big city, no! it was full of excitement…where should I start… We stay in a hostel -I think I haven’t stayed in a hostel for at least 16 years!- went fabric shopping, walked London Streets, visited a museum, eat amazing food, drunk the perfect coffee, chat, laugh, asked about each other’s life, gave and received advice about patterns/fabrics/trims, took pictures and selfies -only phone pictures, sorry!-…We did so many things! it was so exhausting but at the same time very invigorating for the soul.
Walking, chatting and having fun. Annika, Maartje, Marta, Gioia, An and Eva
Blurry photo taken with a phone: Lovely dinner on Saturday, The Railway Tavern. Gioia, Trine, Ines, Eva and Olu.
I have to tell you these ladies not only are talented, but also the best human beings one can wish! I took with me the best memories and warmth from every single one, besides the hope to see my new friends very soon!
