So there we were having a leisurely breakfast at the hotel this weekend, with Mike and Chris of Coffee Break Design (no blog!). We thought we were having a good time, just the four of us. And we were.
Where do you get all these old labels, we asked and Gaye, in her very melodic Southern accent related a great story about recently going to an estate sale where she came upon a room filled with designer clothes and a very overwhelmed seller. Gaye asked if she could have some labels and he said yes! She said she spent several hours methodically ripping out labels like Escada from stacks of clothes. Laughing at the mental picture she painted of this adventure, I asked if she always travels with a seam ripper.
Gaye said she went back a few times and each time the estate seller encouraged her to take more and she did. It was a great story, shortened here, and one of those once in a lifetime scores for Gaye. Fun!
There was quite a bit of excitement and interest over the Small Studio Workshop Series this past weekend, so if yoiu have been hesitating to sign up, I would encourage you to do it now before classes sell out. Michael deMeng's workshop is coming up fast in June. Sign up now!
