I had the pleasure to meet some wonderful ladies that sew via Rachel's Melbourne meet up and the other Rachel Social Sewing days. While I was at the last Social Sewing day, the matter of floral frocks and high tea event came up. I believe this was Melanie of Poppykettle's idea that she had been thinking of for sometime. I'm very keen to do these sorts of activities with like minded people, as I'm sure you are too.
I was hoping to see if there would be any interest in an event cross between Julia Bobbin's Mad Men Challenge and Oona's Promaballoona that would involve a night of fancy frocks, fun, cocktails and maybe a meal? I'm happy to organise this for next year as the silly season is almost upon us, if there is any interest of course. Please let me know if your interested, and any interstate-rs we could always arrange dates around you!
Also I'd like to organise a fabric shopping trip day. My sewing teacher has organised a few and I've been to two so far, they are very interesting days, but exhausting. Again, let me know who's interested, and will schedule it for 2013.
