Stitching in the Park
Have you heard about the &Stitches Pic nics yet? This summer, on the first Saturday in June, July and August we're getting together in Hyde Park in London to embroider, eat and chat. Find all the details (including the exact spot where we meet) here.
It all started last summer when I got together with Julie, Carina & Sami and we spent a lovely afternoon stitching in the gardens of the Victoria and Albert Museum. This year we thought it would be great if we could include more people (because it's so much fun!) and a park is the perfect place to meet if more than a few people decide to turn up ;)
For me events (if we can call it that) like these are great as you get to meet and chat to people that you only know from Twitter or their blogs. So if you like the idea of spending a hopefully sunny afternoon stitching and maybe making new friends (or finally meeting on-line friends) then please join us for one (or all) of the Pic nics.
I'll be travelling from the Netherlands to join the &Stitches Pic nic in July and I'm so looking forward to it! I'm arriving a day earlier and leaving the day after so I have time to meet up with people and visit some museums and craft/fabric shops (tips are welcome!) Anyway it would be great to meet some of you in London!
