Are you a design, art or craft blogger? Have you been to one of our abcd Sydney get togethers yet?
Steph Bond Hutkin of Bondville and I have been busy hatching a plan for a new look event... a Saturday Soirée! We're moving out of the moodily-lit cosy cocoon we usually meet at in the evenings and into a lovely bright airy atrium on a Saturday afternoon. We are hoping to catch a last stray day of summer, or one of those glorious blue sky autumn days that Sydney is so good at, so we can all sparkle and shine and chat and hang.
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.
Would you like to join us?
Saturday 14th April
2pm - 5pm
Back bar (Atrium)
68 Victoria Road
Map and details of parking
We have exclusive use of the Atrium area from 2 til 5, but there's nothing stopping us from staying on. There is a great snack menu available all afternoon, plus dinner of course if you'd like to linger longer. As well as the pub's bar there's coffee and tea available... and 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. Steph 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, 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 so mark your diary now and register by commenting on the post below. 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'll email all the goodie baggers on Tuesday 10th 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! If you do Facebook (and you know I don't) you can find abcd there too, thanks to Steph.
Steph and I are very excited and are already wondering what we can plan next to go one better! We hope you see you on 14th.
