Hey there wonderful people! This one’s a post for those of you who live in Wellington (or near enough to Wellington to want to come here for a day).

Juliet, Nikki, Mrs C reckon it’s about time we all meet up and see who the “real” people are behind the blogs. So, we’ve organised a meet up for Saturday 24 November!

There’ll be tea and cake, browsing of sewing type stores, a fabric and patterns swap, and lots of awesome chats with other sewing/craft bloggers.

You know you want to be there! 😉

We’ll be meeting up at 1pm on Saturday 24 November, in a nice central Wellington location.

Want to join us? (Coz we’d love to meet you all!) Send me an email for more details: macska at gmail dot com
