What’s going on?

Me not sewing

A lot is going on.  Over the weekend I went to the Denver Design Incubator’s Open House on Saturday May 19.  I met Janet White of JM Designs and it is  always nice to see her and chat.  I met Holli Gibson of LamanBlu.  I had actually met her at another function in January but this time I got to talk a bit more with her.  I am in awe of all that she gets done with work, family and non-profits.  Briefly talked with Rustin of DDI and he told me all the great opportunities at Denver Design Incubator, not just for designers and instructors!   Next, it was a visit to the Denver Art Museum with the lovely Miss Annie.  We went to see the Madeleine Albright exhbit of her amazing pin collection.  Be warned this is an extensive collection.  We looked at every single pin, there must have been a couple hundreded or more.  Not quite planned was our stop in the fashion  studio at the DAM where we met Stephanie Ohnmacht or Stephanie O. Stephanie won this year’s Frock Out design.  At the DAM she was doing a draping demo and discussing her career and how she goes about the design process.  I think we could have sat and talked with her all afternoon.  I love hearing about how people get from A to B in their careers.  Plus, she had a lot of insider/professional knowledge of how patterns are made and how we get clothes made and of course how to drape, albeit a brief over view.  I really wanted to just get sewing, draping, playing with fabric – doing what I love.  But, duty called, had to plant the carnations and snap dragons before they met a brittle death.  Help a small person with a history of the Roman Army project, check baseball schedules, make dinner, unplug the sink and get ready for the Memorial Day weekend.  So, what is going on with you?
