Mr. Lucky and I are boarding VirginAmerica tomorrow for a five day trip to CA to visit with his family. The timing is also perfect to allow me to attend an event I've heard about: Artistry in Fashion http://artistryinfashion.com/ put on by Canada College's Fashion Department in Redwood City, CA.
I eagerly read other blogger's reports in previous years and am thrilled that I'll get to attend.....and I hope meet some virtual sewing friends in the process.

The vendors look wonderful and I'm delighted to hear Marsha McClintock, owner of Saf-T-Pockets patterns, speak again....particularly after I enjoyed making her Vest S-Cape in 2011 for our New Zealand trip Vest S-Cape review
Mr. Lucky and I met 30 years ago in northern CA after my former company had transferred me from Baltimore to the west coast. I still think it is one of the most beautiful places in the USA and am happy that we have family and friends there to give us opportunities to visit every so often. This is not a long trip since we have many other things on our plate right now back on the east coast. But we will make the most of it, seeing family, seeing the beautiful scenery, eating dim sum, and for me, enjoying being among creative, energizing designers and sewing enthusiasts.
