My Dottie Angel Workshop Adventure in Seattle WA

I feel like I just got dropped off to go to College

In late September, I ventured off to Seattle Washington to attend an all vintage fabric workshop with Tif of the Dottie Angel world.  I luckily "found" this workshop while checking in on her blog.  The workshop was created by Angela of Angela Ritchie's Ace Camps.  This was the very first time I ever "went away" to attend a crafty workshop.   The perfect thing to get my creative juices going in a different direction for my Etsy shops.  

In the past year, I've inherited a lot of old doilies and hand embroidered lovelies created by people's grandmothers and aunts. When I came across Tif's workshop, I knew this was the very thing I needed to get me going on how to re-use these lovelies with a more modern and usable fashion. 

Here are some photos of my 1st day there. I got dropped off at the front door of the B&B Shafer Baillie Mansion where I stayed with my London roommate Louise for 3 nights. During the day, we were across the street in another Victorian mansion sewing and cutting away with 11 other creative women participants and Tif herself.

More photos to follow in the next days...
