It started out as an inkling of an idea mentioned to the girls at The Craft Room, one Sunday last year. Cass said she’d be there without doubt. Sophie said she was in too. Corrie not only said she’d come, with her whole tribe, but offered there and then for Retromummy to be our very first sponsor.
I left thinking……does 4 make a ‘convention’? Will anyone else be interested?
I rang Donna and told her my idea. She said I was stark raving mad, crazy, a lunatic….but she’d be right there beside me every step of the way. (Reminds me of that old joke: Don’t bother calling your best friend to come and bail you out of jail for some misdemeanor; she should be standing right there next to you in the cell).
I am absolutely delighted to tell you that I have filled all the places in the Saturday Crafting Session.
There are 60 craft bloggers coming from all over Australia, and even a couple from New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
In the end, thanks to cancellations and people dropping off the waiting list, almost everyone who wanted to come is actually coming.
I consider that a great success.
In addition, there another 5 bloggers coming to dinner (who aren’t coming to the Crafting Session) which makes a total of 65 bloggers involved in the event.
Thank you so much for all your support and enthusiasm. You make all the hard work worthwhile.
I’ll be back a few more times before next week. I’ve still got two sets of prizes to announce. Did I ever tell you a very kind lady offered me two more prizes to get the total to 60? I’ll tell you about it soon.
I’ll be posting a “what to bring” list which, hopefully, you will all add to with your own ideas so we have a good list of what to pack.
Plus a few more organisational bulletins.
And then before you know it, we’ll all be together in Melbourne next week!
