Recently a whole lot of Sydney Sewing ladies gathered for lunch and fabric shopping in the city organised by Melanie (thanks again!). There was pizza, fabric patting, fabulous conversation and more sewing people than any one person could have a conversation with in the one day. In short it was awesome.
So awesome that we decided to make Sydney meet ups a regular thing.
It's not a new idea. I've been envious of the Social Sewing happenings in Melbourne organised by Rachel for quite some time. In fact I recently crashed one and hope to one day have something similar in Sydney. And don't even get me started on Frocktails!
So why not
steal borrow their ideas and make it our own in Sydney?
Enter the Sydney Spoolettes!
Our version of the Spoolettes involves a closed Facebook Group for anyone in Sydney that sews. It can also involve any interstate/international visitors who intend to come along to a meet up at some point. We decided to make it a closed Facebook Group so that it can be a safe place for anyone in Sydney to suggest a meet up or organise one as a whole group without a whole lot of emailing back and forth. Check in whenever you want, accept or decline events and come along to as many or few meet ups as you like.
We've already organised and been on a shopping trip to Cabramatta yesterday - thanks for organising it Susan!
So if you're in the Sydney area or would like to come along to one of our meetups come and join us on Facebook and keep up with us. It's such a lovely bunch of people I promise you'll want to come along to everything!
Hope to see you "in real life"!
