Would you believe you can shop for fabric after a 14 hour flight? Grace is a fabulous fabric enabler. You know Grace’s blog – Badmomgoodmom.

We met recently through Me-Made May 2013. Thankfully Grace had the time to rescue me from my first failed attempt to meet but second successful attempt to get a T-Mobile sim and she took me to SAS Fabrics in Hawthorne, LAX. I wasn’t able to get my act into gear early enough to visit Trash4teaching (T4T) but from Grace’s experience, T4T is a good place to shop.

|We were both happy with our haul and we’re both wearing me-made outfits. Grace is great at using her stash. She’s wearing her fail to win outfit.|
Now on Day 1 of my trip to the States it would have been very easy to pick up lots of great prints and notions to fill my suitcase just at SAS Fabrics, but I was restrained. My haul only weighed in at 5 pounds. So I was able to farewell LA with 1 suitcase that had plenty of room left. Thank you Grace for the blue FOE and ‘seams great’.

You were right KC. Next visit I’ll add in a few days (hire a car) to get to the garment district and fabric shop with you and Grace.
|I love mexican food now.|
For dinner we met up for real Mexican food (see the cooks above) and our husbands joined us. We had a great night. We all cycle so sewing didn’t dominate the conversation.
The next day I bought a Mexican cooking basics magazine at LAX as we waited for our NY connection, to remember the great day I had with Grace.
Thank you Grace and Mark. I hope to catch up with you next visit KC.
