I realised recently that I’m attending the local Weavers, Spinners, & Dyers Guild, and the Embroiderers’ Guild monthly, but I don’t meet with other local sewists nearly that often.
In order to change that I’m suggesting having a regular catch-up in the diary once a month. Given that setting aside a whole day can be difficult, I’m thinking one evening a month (roughly 6pm-9pm) to chat and (optionally) eat/drink/craft/swap. Everyone is welcome.
To get the ball rolling, I’m proposing that the first two dates are Tuesday 26th January, and Friday 26th February. The January get together will take place in Birmingham City Centre (I’m suggesting The Stable if that sounds ok to everyone), but we can vary the location in future.
In order for everyone to have an idea of roughly who/how many people can make it I’ve created a basic poll. Add your name & tick the dates you’re planning to attend. If your plans change you can alter your selection. The poll can be found here: http://doodle.com/poll/eemuhrm2kkcuncbw
P.S. Rachel is organising meet-ups to Leicester Market on 06th Feb, and to the Birmingham Hobbycrafts show in March.
