Rooftop Crafting

Back in April I signed up to attend a day-long crafting workshop with Heather Ross and I have been anxiously counting down the days until it arrived this past Sunday.  It was so much fun and I met lots of new crafting/quilting/sewing friends.   The event was held on her rooftop and it was hot, hot, hot!  But that didn’t stop all of us from having a great time and getting our craft on.

The theme of the day was family, in honor of her new book How To Catch A Frog.  After checking out some inspiration, we dug through an endless supply of crafting goodies.  Seriously, it was a craft-lovers dream come true.

It was so fun to see all of the creative ideas everyone came up with.  What a talented group of people!

Later in the day, we had the option to take a field trip and visit the South Street Seaport Museum , home to Bowne & Co. Stationers.  I can’t believe I had no idea this place existed, and I even lived close to the museum many years ago when I first lived in New York.  Bowne & Co. is a great find and I can’t wait to take visitors there when they are in town.

After a full day of crafting, we wrapped up the day with some Meyer lemon cocktails while Heather signed books and gifted us with fabric from her Briar Rose and upcoming Far Far Away collection.  Far Far Away comes out next month and I can’t wait to get my hands on it, but maybe first I should finally get around to using Briar Rose in a quilt.  It’s going to happen!

Thanks to Heather and her team for hosting such a fun event.  It was a great day and I can’t wait for the next one.
