kantjeboord and a Fashion Design studio

Hi Readers

Once again I am in the Netherlands for work, but today is Friday and I have a great weekend ahead of me.

Firstly I am meeting the lovely Sigrid and spending the weekend with her and we have some exciting things planned.

Tomorrow we will go to the famous Kantjeboord where Sigrid and other lingerie sewing buddies purchase the beautiful lace and lingerie making notions from.  So far every time we have met up this shop has been shut - I just hope that isn't the case tomorrow.

Our 2nd bit of excitement for the weekend is a tour around a famous design studio.  One of my D Mike's colleagues has kindly connected me to his wife who is a fashion designer for a very large famous company based here in The Netherlands and she has agreed to give us a tour of the design studio.  Hopefully we will be able to take some photographs, and needless to say, I need to ask before I mention the name on my blog, but suffice to say I am sooooooooooooo excited.

Lots more later...................................


  1. What a wonderful weekend together... Have fun x

  2. Talk about a dream weekend - great friend, designer studio envy, luscious fabric shopping. It sounds wonderful and I can't wait to hear a report.

  3. What a great weekend you have planned. As Bunny said -- great friend, designer studio, and fabric shopping. Am green with envy and can't wait to hear all about it.

  4. I agree with all about a great weekend! I look forward to hearing all about it, too.

  5. I am soooo jealous that you get to go to that brilliant shop. We have the bare minimum of supplies here, in black, white and beige only. (sigh) I cannot wait to see what you bring home :)
