I had such fun yesterday. This months LMGQ meeting was held at Liberty’s London just off Regent Street. I took the Piccadilly Line to Piccadilly Circus to stumble unknowingly upon the beginning of the ‘Piccadilly Circus Circus’, part of the London 2012 Festival. The entire street was closed to traffic, with raised stages intermittently along the way with spectacles of performers, juggling, tight rope walking, dancing and more – WOW!!
I walked up to Liberty very excited, as they were to present their new line of fabrics specifically designed with quilters in mind. We met the main designer of the line, Sholto Drumlanrig, as well as the sales representative. Sholto spoke about his creative process, colour, how he gets inspiration for his designs and how Liberty choose the final designs for their fabrics. I loved every minute of it and felt special and privileged to be there. Thank you Annie for organising this:) Do go over to her on-line shop to look at all these fabric lovely’s.
We also had our show and tell, saying again, it’s great to be part of such a vibrant group of quilters – fantastic!
Danielle surprised me with a beautiful name tag, all hand sewn, I was so pleased with it, all touchy and feely – thanks Danielle. She is also hosting a ‘Can’t Grow a Mo sew a Mo’ charity quilts fundraiser to help raise awareness of prostate cancer – do go over to her blog to see how you can get involved.
A brilliant day indeed.
Have a happy week,
