- Eight days until our deadline hoves into view, with the chance of winning hundreds of pounds’ worth of goodies.
- Ten days before our Made Up Meet Up.
Yes, you read right. I figured we needed one last motivating factor to crack on with our pledges. (£2339 raised so far, over at the Justgiving page!)
On Saturday 12 September, I’ve booked a private space in The Parcel Yard, on the concourse of Kings Cross station, London. Kings Cross is one of the main travel hubs in the city, which makes it nice and easy to get to. You don’t even have to leave the station to find the pub – no chance of getting lost! It’s bang next to the Harry Potter shop.
If you did want to leave the station, there are lots of nearby sewing destinations to visit:
Drink, Shop Do is also a five-minute walk away on Caledonian Road. This cafe is a hub of creativity and cocktails.
Sew Over It Islington is an 18-minute walk or 15-minute bus ride away. (The shop opens at 12pm on Saturdays.)
And if you want to be really adventurous with your plans, Walthamstow market is 20 minutes away on the Victoria line!
So, you can turn this into a real day out. I’ll be in The Games Room at The Parcel Yard from 12.30pm-4pm on Saturday 12 September. Join me for a drink and a spot of lunch. (I’ve eaten here before several times and the food is great, affordable and to suit all tastes. The wine’s not bad, either.) You can show off your Made Up Makes and we can all celebrate over the amount of money we’ve raised. I have big plans on the totaliser front. I think there’s more we can achieve…
Leave a comment below and let me know if you’ll join us for the Made Up Meet Up! All you need to do is turn up.
