Hi there, gang. This is a housekeeping post about the Goldhawk Road shopping trip planned on 14 May. I’m going to hit the venue and do a bit of a reccie (avoiding any actual fabric purchases – jeez, that will take some willpower). So I’ll post final details nearer the date, but for now I want to confirm a time for those of you buying train tickets into London.
My plan is to meet at 2.30pm. Exact meeting point to be confirmed after I’ve checked out the location.
To say that this meet-up was a popular suggestion might be understating the case. At the last count, there are about 20 definites – and that’s not including the Sew Weekly Sewing Circle Sewists who are already planning to hit Goldhawk Road ON THE SAME DAY. It turns out great minds really do think alike. I’ve been liaising with Debi of My Happy Sewing Place, and we’re hoping that both groups will manage to meet up.
Oh my. Is Shepherd’s Bush ready for this? Remember that IKEA ‘Chuck Out Your Chintz’ ad from a few years back, with women rampaging down the street? Is that going to be us? I’ve decided we need a snazzier title for this meet up, in the same vein as the ‘Walthamstow Shopping Frenzy’.
I hereby christen this meet-up The Goldhawk Road Fabric Fandango! Why? Because it makes me laugh.
Bring your dancing shoes and castanets!
