What’s in store for Sydney 2011?

I know that you’re keen to know what’s planned for Sew It Together in Sydney, so here’s a rundown of what’s on offer. Keep times in mind before you book any flights to and from Sydney!

Remember, before you reserve your place at any of these additional events, you must have reserved your place, and paid your deposit for the Saturday Crafting Session. You cannot attend any of the other events without attending the main event on Saturday 26 March, 2011. You can do that here.

  • Friday Fabric Shopping Trip will be visiting The Remnant Warehouse in Alexandria, the brand-new Calico & Ivy store in Balmain and the Prints Charming studio in Annandale. The bus departs The Menzies Hotel in Carrington Street at 12pm sharp and will return at approximately 5:15pm on Friday 25 March, 2011. Only 24 seats available on the bus. Cost is $32.
  • Friday Prints Charming Stitching Session will be held at the amazingly gorgeous Prints Charming studio in Annandale, Sydney. You’ll spend two hours learning how to embroider one of their beautiful panels, and just enjoying the inspiration you’ll find all around you. If you catch the ‘stitching bug’, you’ll be able to purchase any extra Prints Charming products before you leave. Places *strictly* limited to 15 people. The Session runs from 4:30pm to 6:30pm on Friday 25th March, 2011 and the cost is $70. This includes the lesson, the panel and transfer back to The Menzies Hotel via Maxi Taxi; and the Prints Charming ladies are throwing in some champers so we’re all very relaxed. Bookings are only open to non-Sydney bloggers. {Sorry, but Sydney girls can go anytime – this one is for the visitors only! Please don’t pay if you live in the Sydney Metropolitan Area – I will return your money straight away if you do}. You will need to make your own way, at your own expense, to the Studio at 2 Young Street Annandale if you are not on the Friday Fabric Shopping Trip.
  • Saturday Night Dinner will be held at the Heritage Belgian Beer Cafe, 135 Harrington Street, The Rocks. There is a  3 course set menu (which includes their awesome Mussel Pots), and drinks can be paid for on a cash basis at the bar. You can view the current menu here, although I am advised that it will change slightly between now and March. There are vegetarian options included in the set menu, but if you are even stricter than that (ie vegan), please let me know loud and clear at the time of booking. Saturday 26th March, 2011 at 7:30pm. Cost is $59.00 and includes food only.
  • Sunday Morning at Material Obsession – bus will leave The Menzies Hotel at 9:30am and head straight to Material Obsession for a private shop opening and demonstrations by Kathy Doughty and her team. Come along and explore the store, do some shopping, admire the sample quilts and be inspired by what Kathy and her team are going to show you. The minibus will leave Material Obsession and go directly to the domestic airport for your transfer back home. Please do not book a return flight out of Sydney before 2:30pm. Cost tba and will include the minibus transfer from The Menzies Hotel, and the return trip directly to Sydney Domestic Airport. Numbers will be limited, but will be advised.

I have tried to think of the best of Sydney to show our visitors. I hope that you enjoy any of these options that you decide to attend! Remember, they’re just options – it’s up to you if you come to all of them; or none of them.

Numbers are limited for everything except the Saturday Night Dinner, so I suggest that you do not hesitate reserving your place if you have your heart set on attending something. If you later change your mind, and I can fill your spot, you’ll be entitled to a full refund (excluding the Paypal fee).

Bookings will open for the Friday Fabric Shopping Trip and the Prints Charming Stitching Session soon, so stay tuned!

    Hi Sheridan
    Can I please reserve a spot on the Friday shopping trip and the Sunday morning visit to MO?
    I’ll also be attending the dinner.
    When do we need to pay for all this by?
    Thanks for organising such fun activities! I can’t wait.
    Kelly 🙂

      Not yet! You can’t reserve a place until bookings open, and then you pay and book at the same time via the Sew It Together shop – link at the top of the page.

    Hello again Sheridan! My flight out on Sunday leaves at 2.30pm – will I just squeak in to do the Material Obsession morning?

  5. Michelle Says:

    Just checking before I book my flights – if I book a 2.35 pm flight back, I’ll be OK to still go to Material Obsession?
