My calendar's down and I'm up, but I'm pretty sure I'm free.

For those who don't know where Spot is, the address is 200 East Avenue, sort of downtown-ish but not in the heart of the offices. That's right were East intersects with Matthews, in between Broadway/Scio  and the Inner Loop. Maybe you're familiar with the Little Theatre a short block away at 240 East Avenue?

There's a picture of the building here: http://www.spotcoffee.com/chevy.html --look for the distinctive arched front window. The building used to hold a car dealership with something fast and shiny parked right there in its showroom.

ravenladyj, please feel free to invite your friend. Anybody who stitches is going to fit right in, I bet.

Does anybody need more detailed directions to get there? If so, where would you be coming from?

Hope to see many of you then!

Mim

If we meet on the weekend, we can park for free in the Midtown garage.  It's just a short walk to Spot Coffee.

I have an idea...

You know how you have craft supplies that are just sitting around, not being used?  And how you may not find a use for them for awhile?

Well...why not bring some craft/art supplies that you know you won't be using, so that if others can use them, they can take them.  Kind of an in-person swap?

And along that line... bring any completed projects for swap, too!

Swaps of materials we know we won't be using is fine by me, but I'm still holding onto fabric I bought in my teens. I don't seem to have a pattern of parting with things easily. (That explains the clutter!)

BTW, I talked to my daughter (also a member here, but never hits this part of the site) and she'll be coming, too. Maybe you saw her two-headed goat last month.

Considering the weather outside as I write this, let's figure out what we'll do if the weather looks really bad that day. If that happens, how about if we discuss it here between noon and two on the 16th and make the decision at 2:00 to cancel or not?

Mim, probably borrowing trouble

I'm most likely going to be looking at a possible site for my wedding around 3:00, so I might not be able to make it.  But I'll be with you in spirit!

How exciting, Retrokitty!  I can't wait to hear where you decide on!

Sheesh, somebody get me a new head! I completely forgot our meet-up was this past weekend. I hope some of you made it, and enjoyed meeting one another more than I enjoyed prying up furring strips from our basement floor (where we had a small flood a few months ago), which is what I was doing on Saturday afternoon.

I'm so sorry not to have remembered, and hope it didn't inconvenience anybody.

Mim, pink-faced

I was there... but didn't see any other crafters.  The coffee and dessert was good, though!

Well, at least you got out of the house and enjoyed something tasty. BTW, how was parking in the area? I'm thinking we might want to know, when and if we try this again.

When I went for the I <3 Handmade event, we parked in a parking garage and walked over...I think it was the East Ave parking garage, but I'm not sure.
