NYC trip

July 21, 2011

So yesterday I rode in the train from Harrisburg to New York City to meet with Burdastyle! I'm working with them on a special project/collaboration. And since Brian takes the train to Philly every day for work, I had someone to chat with half up and half back. So that worked out like awesome sauce;)

I met with the project manager Jamie Lau, who is just darling! I'm so psyched to be working with her. The moment I arrived she helped me make a snappy little espresso and introduced me to all the Burdastyle staff who I've only known in avatar form;)

After our big meeting, Jamie walked me through the garment district including all the most popular shops, B&J, Mood. I bought a cute little ice-cream plaid fabric for $17 a yard (see top). I'd never pay that here but I figured what the heck it's NY. And I think it was worth it because it has inspired me to FINALLY make a new dress. I just have to get the kids bunks upstairs once and for all so I can finish my craft room.

I also got a look at their first book which will be coming out soon! And I can safely say, it's definitely worth the wait! So many amazing projects! So much eye candy. Just like Burdastyle! It's definitely on my must-own list of sewing books.

I'll probably be heading back to the Burdastyle offices in the beginning of August, so I'll update you more then!
