♥ What? ♥
A (free-to-attend) meet-up of people who love to sew. Everyone is welcome, no need to be a blogger, just sign-up using the form above/below so we know to expect you.
♥ Itinerary ♥
The planned itinerary for Saturday 24th September is below. Attendees can feel free to dip in and out, or only attend for part of the day.
10:00 – 11:00: Meet at the Edwardian Tearooms
We’ll be meeting in the lovely setting of the Edwardian Tearooms at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, where we’ll be able to drink tea and/or eat brunch while everyone arrives.
11:00 – 13:00: Birmingham Rag Market & Fabric Shops
We’ll spend a couple of hours shopping for fabric at the Rag Market and nearby fabric shops, Barry’s Fabric & Fancy Silk Store (who are also on Facebook).
13:00 – 13:30: Reconvene and travel to Moseley Village (Guthrie & Ghani) by bus
The journey between the city centre and Moseley only takes 15 minutes by bus, and buses are every 5-10 minutes.
13:30 – 17:00: Guthrie & Ghani / The Dark Horse
In the afternoon we’ll have access to two venues so that there’s plenty of space, with attendees able to move between the two throughout the afternoon.
At Guthrie & Ghani we’ll have time in the shop which sells a wide range of sewing and knitting supplies, and we’ll have use of the studio above the shop where we will be able to natter, compare purchases, hold a pattern & fabric swap, and a raffle.
At The Dark Horse bar/restaurant we’ll have use of the upstairs space where attendees can enjoy lunch (order at the bar), and sit and chat with a drink.
