Fabulous ladies who are blog-less.
I have to say that Leith and I were the ones who spent the most.
I think that smile says it all!!
My goodness I had fun.
Yes, some of that fun was fuelled by the wine I had at lunch with Leith, and the two glasses of wine I consumed at Fed Square after Tessuti.
Christy and Rachel were completely hilarious, and I really want to go to Sydney soon and visit them and have a Sydney Sewers' Meet-up.
In the mean time, though I'd like to get a regular meet-up going here in Melbourne. Anyone interested? What form do you think it should take? Meet in a cafe/bar again? Meet at people's houses? Once a month? Suggestions are very welcome.
Thank you to all who came along (and those who came in spirit too!). I had a marvellous time, and I really want to keep in contact with you all - it was so much fun talking about all our geeky sewing stuff.
