Sewing Weekend Away – it’s nearly here!

elizabeth's_avatarThe lovely proprietors of Moondyne Convention Centre, Christine and Peter, are delighted we want to come back! They’re busy, but they’ve managed to squeeze us in between their scary corporate clients.

Come up on Friday night (8 November) after work and go home Sunday (10 November) after a couple of days of concentrated sewing. Elle will take care of the catering again, with a roster of sous chefs and kitchen fairies.

Accommodation is $50 a night (so $100 for the weekend) and all your food will be another $50, so $150 for an entire, catered weekend. It’s the best value holiday you’ll ever have, and THERE’S SEWING!

If you came along last time, you’ll know the rooms are warm and comfortable with ensuites, the views are divine, and there’s a dedicated conference room where we can set up our machines and cutting out and not have to pack it up each night.,+Australia&da…­

So far seven of us have RSVPed – so if you haven’t, you need to pay, and if you want to be part of the fun, there are eight places left…



Where to from here?

elizabeth's_avatarWith the changes that have been happening around Burda Style Club Perth lately, there have been some mutterings and frowny faces.

No one wants anyone to feel unhappy or not included, so how about getting together, getting all our thoughts out and sorting things out?

**Update – our next sewing meet is on Sunday 20 October at Sarah W’s house.  Do we want to have this discussion then or separately?

Who’d like to host? Should we include afternoon tea?

Should we think about having a president/secretary/treasurer sort of set-up with elections and so forth? Or a committee without particular roles to just manage stuff? Or something else entirely?

Do we want to do some forward planning with venues and specific topics for each meet? Do we want to book a venue and pay for it? Does anyone have any other ideas on where to meet?

Do we still want to be a Burda Style Club and use the BSC meetup site and format and so forth?

If we put forward points of view in the comments, it should be fairly clear how we want to go about this.
