Should I stay or should I go?
February 19, 2011
Yesterday I had a FANTASTIC time with Michelle at Yarn Con.
So obviously I enjoy expos, fairs and bazaars. Which makes the fact that I’m not excited / seriously interested in going to the Quilting, Sewing, Crafting Festival that is happening next weekend kind of strange.
I sew. There’s a quilt somewhere in my apartment that I’m working on, supposedly. And I craft. Quite a bit according to my friend.
So why am I not excited about this event?
Maybe it’s because I can’t find any solid information about it. Or reviews.
Maybe it’s because it’s in SAN MATEO and not easy to get too so if I don’t know it’s going to be life altering it’s just too much of a hassle.
Then I started thinking… what do I need to sew? A machine… I have two, Chuck and Baby. And I’m not ready to buy a serger just yet. And when I do it will be from St Mountain and Daughter OR from Berkeley Sewing and Vac. Fabric – I have MORE than enough. Patterns – I’m good to go, thanks so much. Thread and needles – also good.
So what would I get there that I don’t already have? What would I see that would be new and engaging? I’m not saying it’s not worth it to other people.
But to me? There really isn’t a compelling reason to rent a car or travel by public transit for hour and hours to go to a festival that will most likely be a lot of people selling the same things I can get at home.
I wish it were closer. Because I’m interested… just not interested enough.
