Ignite Craft Boston 2 was this past Friday (the 13!) and I survived the anxiety and nervousness of presenting to a room of about 200 strangers pictures of what I used to wear in high school. It was a great group of presentations this year, everything from how to make pie crust and mating bees to hornsmithing. I especially loved Virgina’s presentation about how she started Gather Here in Cambridge – very inspiring.
This is the dress I made for my presentation – not the best picture of it (my photographer aka boyfriend didn’t want me to post it since it’s not up to his usual standards), so I’ll be doing a shoot this week and post a review of the pattern I used. Isn’t it a crazy funky print? Perfect for a speech on how I use sewing as a means to express myself.
Video of the speeches should be posted online and when they are, I’ll definitely link to it on the blog.
