Save this date! London Meet UP

I will be organising a sewing meet up on April 20 to host Sew Busy Lizzy visit. Details will be disclosed at a later date by email but I just wanted to give you all a heads up in advance so you have time to make cheap travel arrangements to London. 
The idea is to met in the V&A by 10:30 am where introductions and big hugs will occur. Besides being a beautiful place, the V&A have lovely tea rooms. 
Then head for a fabric shopping location (Goldhawk Road) where we will have fun shopping, food & swap. If people are happy to keep going, we can go for drinks after! 
I need to start having an idea of how many people are happy to come, so If you want to come please let me know. We don’t need definitive confirmations until a week before when I will be booking us a place for food.

I got a button if you choose to use:

Most of the details will be sent by email, so don’t forget: either write on the comment/ have available on your profile or email me direct, so I can include you on the meeting mailing.

  • I hope I didn’t put pressure on you on Twitter my dear! But I would soooo love to come to this. I’ve never been to the V&A before, I’ve always wanted to return to Goldhawk Rd after my one and only visit and I LOVE meeting up with sewing folk! So count me in please ;o) You already have my email address too I believe xxx

  • I agree that the V&A have lovely tearooms! Would love to join you, but will still be in Canada at that point.

  • Hooray! I’m so excited I think the people I work with think I have a one track mind – London Sewing Bloggers Meet-up with House of Pinheiro.
    Thank you so much Rachel I’m thrilled to pieces! I’ve even been collecting bits and pieces to bring over with me 🙂

    • Then I have this little me in my head saying ‘what if your clothes aren’t cool enough?’, ‘what if you think you are too Aussie?’ however I shall drink a delightful cup of English tea and calm my nerves 🙂
