I just spent the past few days attending a wonderful educational opportunity in Woodland Hills, CA. It happens every year and brings attendee's from all around the world. I spoke with people from Australia and England. I think over half the attendees were from out of state including myself. At this event, you can learn to do so many different things. They have workshops for hands on learning, and lectures.
I gave four lectures and taught one workshop over the weekend. I also attended a few lectures including one on taking grid based patterns from books and enlarging them so you can make it for yourself. In addition, there are vendors who have everything you need. I bought tons of historical patterns for the 1870 to 1900 time period.
This event also includes four different social events. It begins with a pool party on Thursday Night where people go to have fun, show off bathing suits from the 1890's on up to now or they might wear something casual from a different time. Friday night, they have a wonderful social. This year, it was a night in Paris Theme with food and entertainment.
People create outfits worthy of being in a museum. I've seen some I cannot believe and will never be up to that skill level. I'm sharing some pictures with you from the Friday night event. Over the next few days, I'll share some from the Saturday and Sunday special events. I tend to take general pictures that are very relaxed because I do it when they are not posed.
I will share more pictures from the Saturday and Sunday events. I hope you enjoyed these. Let me know what you think.
