Our meet last Saturday was so much fun..... let's do it again! Are you in?
We need to discuss:
WHEN - Debi has kindly agreed to do another of those clever date voting things she did last time (thanks Debi!) to find the best time, we think sometime in Oct/Nov
WHERE - London again or somewhere else? Another city? Are there any good exhibitions on?
THEME - Mena was kind enough to let us select the theme this week, and it made the day really special to meet up with our outfits and stories of sewing late into the night to finish on time ;0)
Debi is going to ask if we can either know the theme in advance again or select it like we did this time..... any suggestions?
WHAT do you want to do? Another pattern swap? Exhibition? Shopping?
WHO - that's easy, we are all invited xxxxx
ME, ME, ME! As long as it's a city I can get to without too much trouble and where there are some decent fabric shops. Wouldn't mind doing London and the Fashion and Textile Museum ... but that's just me ...
Ooooh Me tooo!! Oct/Nov is good (just not September, or more specifically the last 2 weeks in September)
How about mid country this time? Manchester or Birmingham? although I don't know much about any exhibitions/fabric shops for either. But I'm not really fussy as long as whatever we do there is fabric shopping involved at some point along the way! :)
I'm totally in! Manchester is a bit of a bugger for me its nearly 6 hours on the train and £80 to get there though,
I was thinking about the FTM and then Berwick Street in London again but I know thats tough on other travellers.
Birmingham is good, but still a bloody long way,
Damn being at the bottom of the country!
Anywhere in the west country is also good for me, as I can stay at my parents.
Thanks all for your support xxx
"Where" seems to be a big issue, so far there are suggestions of London, Manchester and Birmingham... any other suggestions?
I was thinking we could have a vote once I get a list together - I will do a surveymonkey in a couple of days, I will leave it until then to give everyone time to see this.
Just wondering if we want to throw Cardiff and Edinburgh into the mix?
yay, sounds good
With regards to blind lemon, I know the owner of the company Edwin, he would probably be up for giving us a discount but I know what u mean about the lack of fabric shops.
A vote is definitely a good plan! I can stay with family in the west country or in the midlands so im a little more flexible than I thought.
