The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Some of us have started saying we'd like a UK meet up.... sooooo, who is interested? And where do you live? And are you willing to travel???????


I have just looked at the rail map of the uk, we could meet centrally somewhere, sometime this summer? We seem to have people from Edinburgh to Devon....


I'll start, I live in Lincolnshire, I can travel within reason (!), but I need some time to organise babysitting ;0) I would LOVE to meet some of the people I have met online and chat about sewing...


Who's in?

I'm a WI lady too!  I'm the youngest one there though ... some of the lectures aren't bad, but then there was the one about interesting postboxes!   
in my mums village inkent they have two WI the younger group and older!

I am the youngest one there too Diane... by a good few years.... but the ladies there are super nice, really kind and lovely, one of them was the village postmistress in 1947 and she's not the oldest ;0)


the animals were amazing actually, he made a whole zooful in about an hour! I brought a marzipan chick home for Mia

lovely, we have  a lot  in commom... Im the youngest on my WI  group by far and i love been spoiled by the other ladies. They are really sweet !

The WI is alot cooler than it first appears! That's 3 of us in the WI so it must be good ...

It is!  I've been in it about 4 years now and everyone has been really kind.  A while ago, I made a set of 10 aprons for catering, in WI colours with the tree motif on the front.  We have some great trips out too.
sounds like you had a fab time. x x x
  I am just busting with excitement.. can't wait to see the pictures of the dresses. and all the fun..Getting tickets..that seems REAL... doesnt it?/
yay so so so excited. I too get up early to have a quick look each morning!!

How exciting! Just found out about this when I joined the site yesterday. I've not been to the V&A for years so am definately up for this.


I'll be travelling down from Cardiff.  Still deciding whether to go by train or coach.  I hope to make a dress in the themed colours but we'll see how long it takes me!


Will be great to meet everyone! :-)

it'll be really good to have you with us Marie!

Hi guys


I don't know how many or if you've seen but by total coincidence I've suggested a meet up in Goldhawk Road on the same day on my Didyoumakethat? blog. It would be fab to combine the two events, wouldn't it? Do you know what your plans are? Tilly of Tilly and the Buttons mentioned in a comment on my blog that the exhibition you're planning to see at the V&A may have moved.
