Haute Couture Club of Chicago June 2015 Luncheon at Wildfire - Downtown Chicago

Last Saturday the Haute Couture Club of Chicago held it's annual Spring Luncheon at the Wildfire Restaurant in downtown Chicago.  The food was delicious and the company was amazingly delightful.  I cannot say enough about this beautiful group of sewists.

Today I wanted to share some pictures from our luncheon. We come from all walks of life with a broad range of professions from teacher to lawyer to physicist.  It is always a joy to come together to share our passion for creativity and sewing.  At each event I have the pleasure of meeting someone "new".  Not someone new to the club, but new to me. 

I had the pleasure of sitting with Ms. Beatrice and Ms. Jean.  Both ladies are 94 years old.  Imagine that!  They joined the HCC in 1966!  I was only 4 years old.  WOW!  Both taught home economics; they still hold validate drivers' license; and are members of a bowling league.  AMAZING!!!

The old board was honored and the new one installed.  Wendy and Susan will co-chair the fashion show 2016.  Maria will continue as President for the year 2015-16.  I can't remember all of the installations, but here is some photos of the new board. 

The Haute Couture Club of Chicago is a wonderful group of creative people, who come together to learn, share, and explore sewing activities.  Please if you are in the Chicagoland area, you should consider joining the club.  You won't be disappointed.

Happy Sewing!

3-Dimensional Floral - Inspiration

Today's inspiration comes from the runways of D&G, Chanel, Stella to name a few. I love their interpretation of florals in their spring collections. Some are subtle and some are over the top. What do you think? Enjoy!
