Thank you everyone for bearing with us while we tried to finalise a suitable venue for our very first meeting. We are now able to let you know that the meeting will be next Tuesday
13th oops, 12th February at 7.30 pm, at the Canberra Labor Club, Teesdale Close, Stirling. Drinks and food will be available for purchase.
We want this to be a very relaxed meeting. Please bring along something to show the group (finished or in-progress, everything goes!), and by all means bring something to work on while we chat. For our first meeting we would like to do some planning of what everyone would like to get out of the group, the types of topics you want to discuss, projects we could work on, any ideas at all really! We have a few ideas to share with you but would really love to hear about anything you think would be good to do in the group.
We also want to discuss meeting arrangements. We know it’s always going to be difficult to find a day of the week that suits everyone, but we’d like to try our best. We’re likely to not continue meeting on the second Tuesday of the month as it’s close to the meeting of the Canberra Quilters modern quilt group, and some of you may wish to attend both and not find it easy to have two commitments so close together. At this stage, the third week of the month will be when the meetings occur, however we will need to discuss which day is best for the majority.
We thought it would be a great idea to run a little fabric swap too – if you want to participate just bring along a sandwich-sized ziplock bag of quilting fabric scraps, these don’t necessarily have to be cut into 2.5″ squares (a la scrap vomit), but should be sized to be useful!
Finally a few people have asked about kids attending. As the meeting is in the evening and at a licensed venue, it’s probably not appropriate that kids come along this time (other than bubs of course). We are looking to organise daytime events (such as a sit-and-sew day) and will accommodate kids for these where possible and/or appropriate. Any suggestions on suitable venues for a daytime event would be most welcome!
We look forward to seeing you all next Tuesday!
