Sydney abcd social: Winter Warmer Sept 2013

It’s time to get out from behind those computers/laptops/smart phones, kick off those ugg boots, and get meeting other creatives face-to-face at the Sydneyabcd social. Say what? We’ve had a re-brand! We’re more than just a meet-up, we’re a social group (offline) that’s into social (online) and we love to help you get to know each other, form collaborations and make friends with like-minded folk.

Let’s get back to basics with a good old-fashioned Winter Warmer at our favourite cosy wine bar, The Three Weeds in Rozelle. Let’s embrace the opportunity to chat over a nice glass of red or whatever takes you fancy in an intimate setting before the temps pick up and and the silly season kicks in.

Lisa Tilse (the red thread) and I will be hosting a relaxing evening of catching up and meeting new friends. We will dedicate about 30 minutes to small group discussions around the topic “What is your dream for the next 3 years?”. You never know who in your group might be able to help your dream along.

We will have a Collaboration Board on display for you to add any upcoming projects that you might need some help with or want to collaborate with someone interesting on. E.g. Looking for a  photographer for a kids clothing editorial for my blog. Looking for someone good at sewing to help me finish up some orders before the markets. Looking for a great pom pom maker to help make props for my online store photos.

And by popular demand, we will be providing goodie bags for you to fill up with your mementos. Pop in something to help your new friends remember you – maybe something you have made, or baked, or something from your stash. Please note “Goodie Bag” registrations are now closed for those participating - there are 28 goodie bags. All goodie bag participants will receive one in return.

Sound like fun?  RSVP below now to join us. Make sure you are on our email mailing list. as we will send out a list of who is coming before the event.

We can't wait to see you there,

Steph & Lisa
