Birmingham meet-up reminder

Hello friends! Just a quick reminder that in less than three weeks Claire, Kat and I will be hosting an awesome meet-up in Birmingham...on Saturday 15 June to be precise.

If you missed it first time around, full details are available over at my original post. A huge thanks to everyone who has already expressed an interest in coming along, we'll be sending a more detailed email out to you in the next week or so. However, there are a number of you whom I have no contact details for: Rosemary, Deborah, Karen Shaw Jones, if you'd still like to join us please leave a comment including your email address.

For those of you on the fence, I can promise a fun day out in the company of lovely, talented stitchers, and plenty of reasonably-priced fabric. We're also going the extra mile to make this a slick experience for you all. On our rekkie to Birmingham a few weeks ago, Kat and I mapped the rag market for maximum efficiency on the day.

Laugh all you want, but deep down inside, you know we're cool ;o) 

Admiring our mapping skills

    1. So glad you're still coming and that you've rounded up some more lovely people! Is it roughly another two? Just so I can book a table for lunch. I'm so darned excited about it!

    3. Okey dokes! A rough idea is what I need anyway, as I'm sure Cafe Soya won't mind if I'm not too precise ;o)

  4. It sounds like such fun, I'd love to be able to come but, just like the Brighton meet up, it clashes with another commitment. I take my hat off to you, it must take an awful lot of organisation. Have a super time :)
