    Afternoon, in the city, waiting to see how many are interested, then will book a venue. Will try to make it low cost, and central to public transport.

    I am interested, if I can sort out transport. Getting to/from the city might be a problem for me, but will think about that when you have more definite times and venue.

    Great suggestion Rainy.

    That particular weekend might be difficult for a few Victorian quilters though as that's when the Australian Quilters Assn are having their symposium. It's a chance for some us us to acquire some desperately needed skills.

    Here's the link.

    Thanks for the link Mosaicthinking.
    I am thinking a nice cafe in the city.
    Any suggestions out there? Near a city train station, with some nice food, and NO FOOTBALL!!

    O.K. I was hoping for someone out my way to be interested in coming along. It would be two hours each way on public transport for me and I would rather not travel alone. I haven't been on public transport for longer than I care to remember.

    Doesn't that make me sound old!

    Anyway I think I will have to count myself out - but if anyone is interested in heading towards the Yarra Valley.........

    I appreciate the thought :thumbup: but that would be taking the scenic route to the extreme :shock:

    I will be keen to hear how the day goes.
