Guess who's coming to dinner?

I am in Denver this week filming two new Classes for Craftsy, and during a break, much to my surprise, someone recognized my name as having written articles for Threads magazine. Wow, what a memory! It should come as no surprise that this was none other than the editor of Threads Magazine, Sarah  McFarland!

Sarah is here in Denver visiting the offices of Craftsy, which is one of their marketing partners. When she suggested we have dinner together, I jumped at the chance! Off we went to a great restaurant called "Linger" here in Denver. 



The restaurant was dark, so I couldn't get a good shot of Sarah, or the food. This picture does not do the meal justice at all, but we shared these wonderful dishes like long lost dinner buddies. Roasted beet salad, BBQ duck buns ( I thought of you, Karin!) lettuce falafel wraps and medjool dates wrapped in bacon were all on the menu and we tried all of them! We shared 5 dishes, but I can't remember for the life of me, what the 5th dish was! Whatever it was, it was delicious!

Better than the food was the company, meaning Sarah, of course. We talked about Threads, we talked about My experiences with Craftsy and of course we talked about sewing! It's always fun to share sewing stories with a fellow enthusiast!

Now I am back in the hotel room, and done for the day, ready to tackle tomorrow's lessons. Sarah, I am so happy to have met you and you can bet that you will hear more from me in the near future!

  1. Your dinner and your guest sound lovely. I have read Threads occasionally but as I'm in Australia I don't see it that often.
    I am very pleased to hear you are filming new Craftsy classed!! I have your two bra classes.
    Are we allowed to know what classes, or even just a hint?
    I shall be keeping an eye out to see what delights you have in store for us all.
    Cheers Dee

    1. I can't reveal exactly what they are but they should be out (hopefully) around the middle of February. But one is definitley a bra class, and one is "something else"

  5. Any hints at all about the course content? I have purchased both of your current Craftsy courses and have watched each many times. They are excellent and have been very helpful to me. I am now the proud owner of more than a few very well fitted bras. Inquiring minds need to know!

    1. The only hint I can give is that one of the classes is bras, the other is "something else" that everyone wants to learn! They should both be released around the middle of February
