Dewsbury Meet Up & A Hike around Haworth – an update!

Not long now ladies! I’m counting the sleeps, and I know a few others who are too!! Can you believe it!? Our next meet up now has international status! Chris who blogs at Hand Made By Chris – Said & Done could no longer cope with missing out on all the fun in Yorkshire and will be joining us all the way from Germany!! Her flights have been booked and I’m so excited to be meeting my Jumping Into June  partner in crime! She’s staying in Yorkshire the whole weekend, and on Sunday we’re arranging another  meet up in Haworth for those of you who want to stretch their legs, enjoy the Yorkshire countryside and maybe a pub lunch! Bring your friends, partners, children & dogs – everyone’s welcome! It will be a proper walk though, so won’t be suitable for push chairs – one of my friends who lives there has suggested Penistone, Top Withens and Stanbury if you want to google where we’ll be walking.  He’s just checking his shifts and may even be our tour guide …

Goodie Bag Guidance!

For the next Yorkshire Spoolette’s Meet Up on the 25th February there’s going to be a goodie bag swap.  It’s not compulsory to join in but it is compulsory for it to be fun! A few of you have been wondering what sort of thing you could put in so I thought I’d give you a few ideas. I’ve not even got any photos together yet, I’m going to find them as I write.  And guess where I’m going to look first? SEWCHET’s Stitching Santa posts! She is the Queen of all craftiness and has the most amazing ideas.  I think they’ve started to rub off onto her followers because everyone who took part in her Stitching  Santa have made some great gifts.  So that’s where I’m going to start!! Before you start looking, don’t get worried.  They’re just ideas and you don’t have to make a huge bag of goodies! A key ring – made by Lyn at Tialys   A Zipper pouch – we can never have enough zipper pouches! Also made by …

Save The Date For The Next Dewsbury Meet-up

That can only mean one thing… A date for the next Spoolette’s meet up can now be set!  I didn’t want to do it before knowing as I’d be gutted if I arranged it and then couldn’t even go myself! Saturday 25th February 2017 We’ll be meeting at the same cafe as last year but in the afternoon instead of going to Weatherspoons I’m thinking we might go to the pub at the train station instead.  I’m going got make a trip to Dewsbury in the next week or so to let Fabworks and Lucky Fashions know to expect a stampede of fabric starved ladies, and to check out meeting places. If you’ve not been before it’s a time to spend a fews hours laughing, admiring and stroking (clothes of fellow Spoolettes) and generally having a fab day with people who you’ll feel you’ve known for …
