Sew Social in Paris - What happened (and a huge giveaway!)12:50 PM
As you might know, a couple of weeks ago I was in Paris with an amazing group of bloggers from all over Europe! It was the funniest weekend ever, full of laughters, long walks and some really crazy shopping.
This was our view from the St Christopher's Inn window (bonjour Paris!):
I slept in a 6 beds dorm together with Annika, Sophie, An, Victoria and Marte at St Christopher's Inn, a great place to stay near the Gare du Nord station, even if you aren't a teenager anymore!
I met the other bloggers along the Seine near Notre Dame on Friday. It was so strange at the beginning: it was like when you meet some famous people on the street and realize that those people actually exist! But after half an hour I was already feeling so as if I was together with good friends.
Then we headed to La Droguerie, a big haberdashery full with the most beautiful supplies. There I started to take some pictures with my phone. Now that I see these blurry pictures I regret I left my reflex at home, but there I was happy to travel light:
Marta, Laura and Sophie caressing fabrics.

On Friday evening we had a dinner in a nice restaurant and could finally relax and shoot the breeze.
Annabelle took this group shot:

Too much fabric? Not at all!
