Your participation was exciting. Thank you so much for the sweet things you said about me on this post. It was a really fun surprise to see my picture with you! Have a wonderful day… Love, Rachel

  5. It was wonderful to meet all of you ladies as well! I had a blast and can’t wait to sew/work together. I definitely felt right at home with all of the creative, crazy, multitasking, sewing moms that I met. 🙂

    I keep thinking of the song from Grease “We Go Together”. LOL

    Love you all! Olivia
