Mimi & Adrienne's NYC Adventure + GIVEAWAY WINNER!!





Hi Darlings!

First...The WINNER is......DANIELLE OLIVER!!! Congrats to you and make sure to email us at info@stitched9.com so we can get some info from you.

Okay now on to our trip...

I dont even know where to begin, lol we had such a great time in NY and I must say that although Adrienne and I have known each other for over 7 years we had never met in person but it felt as if we had lived next door to each other our whole lives! She is just great but I always knew that.

On Friday I had to stop in at Simplicity and so off we went, It was truly fascinating to see the process and to meet all the lovely folks I have chatted with via email in person was great.



































Then we were off to visit Kenneth...The man in just a genius I tell you and if you attended the conference this year you got to enjoy him and see his great works but to be in his space and to touch and wear and see up close his craftsmanship was just amazing and inspiring. He has gifted hands!






Then we went to go visit Kashi at Metro Textiles because if you are in NY you have to go visit Metro

These are our bags ;-) then we hit the streets so enjoy the random pics and food shots, lol

















I had a great time! and I will be back in NY soon enough!
