Tripping in my Trippens

Back from a highly successful trip to the San Francisco Bay Area...Trippen sightings, meet ups, fabulous museum viewing and a new pants pattern!

                                      Jillian  and Shams
                                        All three of us in our Trippens...
                   Unexpected meet up with Ann and Barbara V.
        and my 2nd and final pants muslin with Lynda Maynard. See how straight
those pants hang!

The exhibit we saw was the Jean Paul Gaultier "From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk"
and it was incredible.  I have linked to my Picasa album for pictures of the wondrous things we saw.

                                       JPG himself, by the wonders of holography...

I sadly won't be able to try out my new pattern until Friday; I am co-leading a Women's Wisdom workshop with a friend in Ojai.

          Here's my friend Shams...she made sure I had a WONDERFUL time!


  1. Looks like you had a blast. Thanks for the link to the exhibit. Enjoy your new pattern. I know you will.

  2. Looks like you had a great time!

  3. Aren't sewing friends an incredible gift? It's even fun to experience this vicariously. Thanks for the post.

  4. So much fun, and such great friends. I must admit a tad bit of jealousy-the meetup, the exhibit, the pants draft. :-)

  5. What a great selection of shots from the Exhibit! Thank you for the smiles & camaraderie - I enjoyed every moment that I shared with you :)

    I really look forward to hearing all about your first pair of pants from the new pattern. (details! I want details!)

  6. Looks like a wonderful trip!

  7. I am so jealous that you cool ladies get to hang out! Sounds like a terrific day out.
    Your red "jeans jacket" in ponte is fabulous, a great pattern to use for the fabric. Very cool idea :)
    Thanks so much for your comment

  8. Glad to hear San Francisco survived your visit (tee hee). It must have been lots of fun!

  9. looks like you all had so much fun - and as some of the other posts have said, isn't it great to meet up with fellow sewing enthusiasts. Your pants looks great too.

  10. I just had to leave a little message. I was just looking at your picture on Artisan's Square.You are just so beautiful.
