Being a designer in this amazing industry has one distinct advantage; getting to spend time with your peers. This year, I was fortunate to be invited to the designer’s dinner. Hosted by Marly , of the Yarn Thing blog, a large group of us were treated to a sumptuous buffet at Barrio Tapas – nom!
I had the opportunity to catch up with a lot of friends and meet people that I’d only seen in the blogosphere or on twitter! Lots of talk about yarn, books and ideas before Marly made an announcement that we were to receive goodie bags from various vendors – special thanks went out to Benjamin of XRX, who was a huge sponsor of the event! The roof was blown off the bar when Marly announced that we were all receiving Namaste purses! Wow! All I can say is WOW!
Here is my sweet baby – a Hollywood Pink Zuma! This is indeed the perfect purse for me. It holds my essentials and then some, with room for more, and, most importantly, it stays comfortably on my ‘oh so sagging’ shoulders.
We also received more goodies than one could shake a stick at! Here’s a peek of all the goodness –
Keep a close eye on the designer swag – I’m giving it all away in a competition later this week.
