So, the date is Wednesday 4th May – the day before the first episode of this year’s GBSB!!!
Are you as excited as me!!! I keep wondering if I’ll ‘know’ any of the contestants. I’ve got a bit of a feeling that there might be a certain lady who doesn’t live too far from me who might be in it, but it’s only a hunch and I’ve no evidence, and I’m not saying who!
Anyway, back to the meet up!
Chrissy has kindly offered tea, coffee and bikkies (which auto correct keep trying to change to bikinis!!) and afterwards I’ll arrange for us to have lunch somewhere – venue dependant on numbers., but there’s plenty to choose from.
The sewing/teaching room which opens up from the shop won’t be in use so there is somewhere for us to sit, natter, bring a bit of hand sewing or crochet – whatever takes your fancy!!
If anyone wants to have a pattern/fabric swap that’s ok, but could we limit it to bringing only 1 of each – I’ve still got the bag to drop off at the charity shop from the last one!
It’ll be quite different to our Dewsbury meet ups, as in we won’t be going between fabric shops, although there is a market with a wool shop nearby if yarns your thing, and I’m sure Fiona and Del will be able to point us in the right direction for any of our other shopping needs!
I thought we could stay there until about for an hour or 2 then head off and find a spot of lunch. It’ll be quite flexible so if you can’t get there til later or whatever we won’t leave you behind.
There’s also the possibility of jumping on a train and having an hour or 2 in Hebden Bridge – it’s only 14 minutes from Halifax – again dependant on numbers and what you all fancy doing.
Leave a comment if you’d like to join us. New Spoolettes welcome!! And if you’ve any suggestions or ideas about the day they’re welcome too!!
Once I know how many are interested and spoke to Chrissy again I’ll confirm times and eating place.
And for those of you who’ve followed me for a why you might feel like you sort of ‘know’ my mum a bit too, and she’s hoping to make one in on the day!
Enjoy the rest of your Easter Weekend!
