Creative Women's Circle - Shannon Lamden

image; tess mccabe

All was wonderful, once again, at Creative Women's Circle on Saturday morning.....could be something to do with stepping out of my usual weekend routine taking care of two gorgeous, boisterous little people (my Petit Garcon and Petit-Petit Garcon) while L'Homme De Montmartre plays shop-boy at Galmont. But I think it also has much to do with simply sitting with a group of female small business creative types as a speaker shares her experiences along the creative path.
I could listen for hours.

Shannon Lamden was terrific, very self deprecating with a wicked sense of humour. She spoke about the career path that led to her fabric design business. I appreciated her honesty and willingness to answer all our questions. And then, afterwards we had a fabric swap, which worked a treat for me, as I am finalising a design for Petit-Petit Garcon's patchwork quilt. (I'll talk about that in a future post; that's a whole other story!)

Congrats must go to Tess McCabe on another successful gathering. I'm hooked.

Hey Shelley,

'Twas a great morning, I agree!

Shannon was funny and informative, and I too picked up some goodies for my new fabric projects. Thanks for coming up and saying hello too. See you at the next one!

hey tess, i saw you look at me like 'do i know you? should i know you?' and the answer to both was 'no', so i introduced myself! and i'll probably do the same at the next meeting, cause i don't expect you to instantly remember every woman who is there!! x

And at the next CWC we need to have a meet and great, maybe...or would that take up the whole session?!

Love your shop & blog :)
