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
Are people wanting to join in the Gatsby picnic meet up idea? That would be 11th Sept. I can't make then but September is bad for me every weekend so I think you should go ahead if that is what everyone else wants to do.....
The idea is get the Eurostar ( £69 return) + 1 night in the Formule 1 hotel ( sharing 3 (£39) or share 2 ( £37) per room. The hotel is so basic but at least its clean (doesn’t include breakfast)
So the travel and accommodation is about £82 per person + food. We based this travelling on 15 October and coming back on the 16. (Sat/Sunday)
Sorry to have been out of the loop with the move and all.... Sept 11 is out for me as I think I am actually going to the Gatsby Picnic (my family lives out in Oregon State so very close to California!!) Most of September is bad for me...but October could work well. LOVE the Paris idea....we can throw Glasgow/Edinburgh in the mix as well. I'd be up for anywhere really--with enough notice.
Charlotte--did you want me to send out a calendar link? Are we thinking October and November dates now? Thoughts?
I would love to join in on this meet up, it would make a good deadline to make up some of my stash fabric ;). Although Cardiff would be difficult for me as I am in East Yorkshire. London & Manchester are good as far as the train routes go (I would need to check out Birmingham) and the earlier train tickets are booked the cheaper they are (??). The only date that is a complete no-no for me this autumn is the last weekend of October.
Another place to consider is Leeds - I have been told that there are some interesting fabric places there & I believe a 'Duttons for Buttons', but I will have to check out my sources to confirm this info. and will get back to you.
