Are you a design, art or craft blogger? Are you keen to get out from behind your computer and meet some like-minded creative folk from around Sydney? Or maybe you've been to one of our abcd meetups before?
Well, Lisa Tilse of the red thread and I have been busy hatching a plan for a new-look event and a few surprises.. a Saturday Soirée! We're changing up this time from an evening out at a moodily-lit cosy cocoon to a lovely bright airy atrium bar on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Fingers crossed for a glorious blue sky autumn days that Sydney is so good at, so we can all sparkle and shine and chat and hang.
Would you like to join us?
abcd stands for artists + bloggers + crafters + designers, so if you blog about any of those topics - your creations or other people's - we'd love you to come! We are a friendly group of (usually all) women and it's a relaxed event where you can grab a glass of something sparkly or a nice cuppa and enjoy the company of like-minded creatives.
Saturday 14th April, 2012
3pm - 5pm
Back bar (atrium)
68 Victoria Road
Rozelle, NSW 2039
We have exclusive use of the beautiful atrium at Ruby L'otel from 3pm until 5pm. There is a great snack menu available all afternoon, plus dinner of course if you linger longer. As well as the bar there is coffee and tea available for purchase... and abcd cocktails! Pat and Stick's Homemade Ice Cream Co. are generously giving us some of their 'world famous' and delicious ice cream sandwiches and Alison of Alison Lawson Cakes is making a delish confection for us! Lisa and I are styling up the venue and Milk and Honey Photography will be snapping us all at our social best. We are hoping we might be able to convince everyone to wear white, pastels or sparkles - or all of them together to make our Soirée super style-y. What do you think? Are you in?
As always, the famous abcd goodie bags will be part of our Saturday Soirée. The goodie bags are wildly popular and are available to everyone who contributes to them. If you're unfamiliar with our goodie bags your contribution is something for others remember you by. It's more than just a business card... maybe a sample of something you make, or a little something you whipped up especially, a sweet treat... a little memento. Prior to the event we need to know goodie bag numbers so if you'd like to participate let us know when you register.
If you'd like to join us for our abcd Saturday Soirée - come on, it's going to be fun! - we need to know by Monday 9th April 2012, so mark your diary now and register here. You must register in order to attend, and don't forget to tell us if you'll be adding to (and receiving) a goodie bag. We will email all the goodie baggers on Tuesday 10th April, so you'll know how many items you'll need to contribute. It's usually around 30.
If you have any questions about anything, or are just feeling a bit shy and need reassurance, please email me :)
Lisa and I are very excited and are already wondering what we can do next to go one better. We hope you see you on 14th April.
1. Registere here with "Goodie Bag" if you would like to contribute to (and receive!) an abcd goodie bag by Monday 9th April 2012.
2. We are asking for a gold coin donation on the day to help us cover some costs. Thanks! x
3. And don't forget to wear your whites, pastels and sparkles.
