Details for the Sewing Bee

Just to save time sending individual emails tomorrow... The sewing Bee is from 10am to 7pm on Saturday at the Brunswick Business Incubator. You can stay all day or stay an hour - anything is appreciated.

PLEASE RSVP BY EMAIL - I need to know how many to prepare for and I'll email details about how to get into the building (the security doors are closed on weekends).

Bring whatever sewing equipment and fabrics you think would be useful. Bring your sewing machine.... but bear in mind there will be either two or four flights of stairs to contend with (depending which room you're in). I have about 6 sewing machines and 2 overlockers that you can borrow if your machine is particulary heavy. If you have a portable overlocker please bring it. Label your scissors and things so they don't get mixed up with anyone else's.

We have kitchens with microwaves and sandwich toasters. We have filter and plunger coffee. We have tea bags. Bring a small amount of food to share for lunch. We have cakes and afternoon tea sorted (thanks to some generous souls).

Bring things like cotton tape, narrow ribbon and buttons. They make quick handles, straps and fastenings on bags. Bring plain coloured fabric and any cute kiddie-prints you think would be good.

Ummm.... I'm getting eyestrain and have to get away from this screen. If I've forgotten anything please email me!!

many thanks -

Thank you Nikki! My lovely colleagues have loaded me down with school supplies, markers and stickers for the packs. See you there.
