Anyways it was PACKED at Sew to Speak and they are not a large store. She took the time to sit and chat a little bit with every single person in line. I think that alone is pretty amazing. I told my friends there "If that was me I would have a power point presentation and do a Q&A session because I hate to repeat myself when people usually have the same questions over and over again".
I was about to leave after being in the store for an hour but then I saw the line was only halfway and no one else was coming in so I continued to chat to my friends Olivia from Wholly Craft, Emily of Umbrella Girl Productions and Michelle of Baby Gee's. Michelle was thrilled she loves Amy Butler and has met her several times. This is the Picture we took with her. I look a MESS! No makeup and super tired from wrestling with the cat's at the Vet just before this. Amy Butler is TALL, she also was very well accessorized with hints of ice on her hands. I like how her smaller diamond bands and solitaire stones probably equated to 5 carats on just one finger yet she dressed more conservatively but fashionable like someone who appreciates Diane Von Furstenberg (yes I am probably over identifying her because I have been watching too much NYFW)
Another funny fact is that an old friend of mine from high school's parent's moved to Granville and they are neighbor's with Amy butler "We live on the same Hill"
To be honest I like her fabrics and patterns but I wasn't a huge fan. I thought they were nice but didn't quite understand the entire rave about it. I am selective about my fabrics and even more my color choices. But after the trunk show and meeting Amy in person I was really wowed by her how personable she was and genuine. I also got to take a look at her new line Soul Blossoms and was happily impressed with the more complex patterns in the fabrics. I think my favorites are from "Passion" below.
