BrisStyle Meet-up

WHAT A MARVELLOUS time we BrisStyle girls had yesterday at our monthly meet-up. There were the usual suspects, plus some new members and the enthusiasm of the group was truly infectious. It was one of those glorious late summer days - sunny, with the promise of spring in the air.

Show & Tell was very exciting, as you can see. Goodies ranged from incredibly intricate jewellery and beadwork, hand-made books, artist's prints, children's dresses and accessories, and so much more.

Our market on 13 December will be held in the Hamilton Town Hall which can be seen in the background. Plans are leaping ahead at a great rate and we are all very positive that our first market will be an overwhelming success. With live entertainment as well as scrumptious food and coffee to keep the customers happy, we can't see how we can do anything but succeed.

In the meantime, my plans to start on my new quilt have been put on hold for a week, as I frantically make items for the sales room at next weekend's Schoolhouse Quilters' exhibition.

And I can feel a fabric buying frenzy coming on ...

Looks like a lovely meet-up and so nice to see the group growing. Have printed out a few copies of the Schoolhouse Quilters Flyer to give to the ladies at craft. Really hoping to make it out there with a few of them on Sunday!

It was such a lovely time, Robyn - the promise of spring and a market in the planning!
Good luck next weekend at the Quilters Fair.

Yes it was just lovely wasn't it. I had such a good time - beautiful sunshiny day, yummy food, hot chocolate, peppermint tea and fantastic company. Hard to want for much else really!!! All the best for the Quilters Fair - I'm sure you'll do smashingly :)

I really enjoy our meet-ups. I arrive home all refreshed and happy from spending time with such a lovely group of creative personalities. I will be joining you all at our Christmas Market with my own little stall and very much looking forward to it :-)
