Alt Summit took place in the historical Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco and we were thrilled to be there! It was inspiring and just plain amazing to be surrounded by so many talented and creative people.
As sponsors, we were able to set up a photo booth. We thought that it would be fun to represent San Francisco-- and what better way to do it than with an Alcatraz inspired mug shot?!
We made the backdrop with Thin Stripe from Bekko and we took the photos with a Fuji Instax mini. Then, we taped the instant photos to a super cute Alcatraz postcard. We hope this was a fun souvenir for all of the alt bloggers!
We also took tons of pictures with phones and digital cameras so the photos could be posted on Instagram #michaelmillerfabrics #altsf. Log in and check 'em out!
In between photo-ops, we were lucky enough to hear some of the keynote speakers. If you feel like getting lost for a few hours, visit their sites!

And, I can't blog about alt without mentioning all of the fantastic packaging, swag bags, interesting business cards and cute ways that creatives stand out!
The Pinterest headquarters is located in San Francisco and they hosted a lovely after alt "Alice in Pinterland Party".
What fun! Tiny treats, yummy cocktails, and great company- the perfect way to wind up an excellent couple of days.

Michael Miller provided Bekko fabric to all of the alt attendees- just enough to make a Box Bag like the one over at Pretty Modern (pictured below).
If you love the Box Bag, you can win it- just tell us about a blogger who inspires you! We'll also throw in a bundle of Bekko so you can sew a bag for a friend :)
