hoffman tour

Yesterday I went on a tour of Hoffman California Fabrics in Mission Viejo. It was a SAQA tour organized by Jamie Fingal. How fun to see everybody! Here I am in the lobby with Julie.

Another shot of me in the lobby. Wow, is my hair really that color?! It looks so different depending upon the light. You can see I'm clutching a red "diploma." More on that later.

My favorite part of the tour was the artist/designer's studio, and here are two of them. Julie took these photos, thank you, Julie. I have been on this tour a couple of other times, but it has been at least 10 years.

For going on the tour, everyone received a "diploma," which was really a sweet bundle of fabrics. I snapped up a red bundle which was full of these batiks. Yum, I will use these! Thank you, Hoffman!

There are more photos of the tour, plus lunch afterwards, at the SAQA SoCal blog.

What a fun thing to do! I'll have to schedule one on my next SoCal trip (whenever that is).
