I had great afternoon yesterday in Barneveld (NL) where the fall edition of Stoffenspektakel took place.
The most important part of this afternoon was meeting with Marianne from Fox Gloves and Thimbles blog – very intimate Bloggers meeting. It took some time before we eventually met – but we have managed. We have met at the stand of Kruyff v.o.f. who sells high quality couture fabrics. Mrs. Kruyff was very surprised hearing we know each other only through blogging and we have never met before. Afterwords we had coffee with apple pye and nice talk. We have a lot in common – e.g. passion for couture, proper fitting garments and we both enjoy hand sewing. We just speak the same language. I hope we meet again.
I have managed to purchase dark blue wool crepe for the Marfy Dress 0303, deep grey wool crepe for a skirt, fabric for a French jacket with nice silk in dark blue for lining, the last was a piece of knit fabric for a top – of course blue shades.
Marianne decided to make her shopping in Apeldoorn. I will probably visit Stoffenspektakel in Apeldoorn as well to buy knits to make tops. They will be perfect for these fall/winter days.
It was nice to see the place in Barneveld where the fabric mark is taking place. One small min point – you have to pay for parking a car and you have limited time – 1,5 hour. I prefer to set such limits myself – feels much better.
