Thank You

Thank you everybody.

I’m not really sure what to say other than that.

Thanks for so many gorgeous gifts. You really did spoil me.

Thank you for all the hugs, for the kindness, for the warmth and friendship. Thanks for trusting me. So many of you came such a long way and trusted me to be there at the other end.

Thanks for the joy of watching you get to know each other, laughing together and creating together.

I loved watching Andi help Gypsy make her first quilt top. I loved watching Trash carry Esther‘s baby daughter around so Esther could quilt. I loved seeing the paparazzi go wild over Jodie‘s animals. I loved watching so many of you meet, shriek and hug women that you have long known but never met.

It really was awesome, wasn’t it?

It’s well after midnight and I have a long trip home tomorrow today, but I really don’t know how I am expected to get to sleep…..

Thank you.

  10. Holly - Two Cheese Please Says:

    No thank YOU Sheridan! I don’t think any of us truly understand the mountain of work you did to organise this event and have it come off so smoothly! We were just grateful to turn up and have a fantastic day of eating, crafting, chatting, and connecting. But it must have been a massive task that you did just because you’re ace and love this community – and we’re all grateful for your work!

    Sign me up for a life long membership too, hehe!

    Thank you for giving us all the opportunity to make real connections with many who would otherwise have remained only virtual friends.
    Can’t wait til next year.

  17. Liesl Says:

    I’m sure we don’t know the half of the hours you must have put into organising Sew It Together. What a fabulous thing you did bringing everyone together. Thank you very much for providing a such a fun, memorable weekend. xox

    no we thank you! oh my goodness, its going to take me 3-4 blog posts to do it justice but I’ve done my first!

    you did an awesome job and you just yell out if you need a hand next year but I’m there with bells on and can’t wait!


  21. Kristine Says:

    Where have I been hiding to miss hearing about this? I am known for my vagueness, but I usually snap out of it when a bit of crafting is afoot. I will have to read back over your archives to find out all about it. Sounds like a lovely event. Clever you for putting it together.

  22. Tanya Holt Says:

    Sheridan, what they all said- you should feel very proud of yourself and your helping buddies for pulling off such an event. extrememly top effort, I had the happiest day and loved getting to know some of my bloggy friends in real life and enjoyed interesting and meaningful conversations and connections…oh, and did a small amount of crafting!!

  23. trash Says:

    Oh indeedy what a fabulous weekend. I too echo the copious thanks and gratitude headed yours and Donna’s direction. As for carrying around Senior Management, don’t tell her mama but to be honest it was entirely selfishly motivated. That and Senior Managament really wanted to see what everyone was up to.

  24. trash Says:

    Is one able to apply for lifetime, long-distance membership?

  25. Gypsy Says:

    Trash – no, you can’t. You’ll just have to come back next year.

  26. Renae Says:

    Thankyou Sheridan & Donna you have done such an amazing job putting together the whole weekend. It was such a blast and even better than I expected! It was the fun-est weekend ever! I am definately putting my hand up for a life long membership too! Renae

  27. Kelly Says:

    THANK YOU!!!!! Thanks soooooooo much for organising such a fantastic bloggy get together. You and Donna did an amazing job, and everyone had an absolute blast. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – YOU ROCK!!!

    I’m saving for Sydney already, and have my hand up for lifelong membership too.

    Enjoy a well-earned rest Sheridan. You’ll need it, coz now word is out about how fantastic SIT 2010 was, I’m sure 2011 will be bigger than ever!!! You might need to book a convention centre to hold the masses.

    Big hugs and ginormous thanks!
    Kelly 🙂
