Events: Sydney ABCD Meetup Spring 2010

Calling all artists, crafters and designers who blog and can get to Sydney on Thursday 28th October 2010... welcome to the first Sydney ABCD Meetup!

A few years ago, after getting to know each other online, Kim Wallace (Udessi online gallery) and I met for coffee and a chat. We gained so much from the face-to-face meeting, and thought it would be nice to arrange a time and a place for other art, craft and design bloggers to get out from behind their computers and (shyly) say hello. The Brisbane ABCD Meetups were born, and little did we know the fantastic response, the casual get-togethers and the ensuing collaborations that would follow.

Now that I live in Sydney, the lovely Lisa Tilse from The Red Thread and I would love to invite you to come to our first ever Sydney ABCD Meetup. Here are the details:

Event: Sydney ABCD Meetup Spring 2010
Date: Thursday 28th October, 2010
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: The 3 Weeds Hotel (back bar), 197 Evans St, Rozelle, NSW
RSVP: via the ABCD Facebook page, or comment here on Bondville
Optional: bring something for the goodie bag to help your new friends remember you

More about ABCD Meetups:
ABCD stands for [Artists + Bloggers + Crafters + Designers] and the quarterly meet-ups are an informal way to meet other folks with similar interests in the online space. Rather than being a networking event, these are simply a few quiet drinks with other creative bods; a chance to make a friend or two, and be inspired by what others are doing. All folks attending are given a sticky name badge, a welcoming hello, and a warm, friendly environment. And, if you feel like it, you can add a little creative reminder of you to the ABCD goodie bags that everyone is offered to take home.

You can find photos and posts about previous ABCD meetups on the Facebook page, as well as on Bondville and Udessi.

We would love to meet you; please come along.
