    "Sew in" day in Mississauga, ON

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been thinking for sometime about how I'd love a day where I could go offsite with a bunch of other creative people and just sew, sew, sew on whatever I happen to be working on. I think I've found a great space, but because I'm not a member of any of the local quilt guilds, I'm not sure how many people would be interested in coming and whether it's worth organizing or not.

    I was thinking it could be an all day event, and the only cost would be to cover the rental cost of the hall. Would anyone here be interested in a having a day like this in late May? The location I have in mind would be around Hurontario and the QEW.

    A few of us do that in a little church basement here. We just ask a friend and if they happen to be a guild member they can ask any friend from there too, but consider the size of the room & make sure you have lots of room for extra tables to sandwich quilts on etc. We usually bring our own lunch & some "share" snacks for our day.

    It's a possibility for me ... keep me in the loop, as you make your plans and I'll see if I can swing it.
