All systems are go for another Montreal Meet-up on in honour of CarmencitaB's visit!
So far we are a small group of ~6 people and eagerly awaiting an RSVP from a few more. If you're on the fence about joining a group of strangers, let me tell you that I have never had a bad meetup. My first one was in NYC, and I have to admit to asking myself on the bus ride down, "What the hell am I doing? I'm going to another country to spend the day with strangers! They could all be weird / unfriendly / racists / thieves or something!"
Do these look like intimidating faces??

(well, those kids look a little shifty. Oh wait, they're mine.)
I am technologically illiterate, so I haven't made a button,
but Shannon has kindly offered to make one if she manages to find the time from her myriad other responsibilities. She made some! I'm just going to stick one here as an image that you can grab - I'll turn it into a button when I'm not at work (oops!)
- meet us at El Chalateco at 520 rue Beaubien E. on August 17th from 12noon onwards. It is an Ecuadorian place with mamma-style food (lots of dietary options for those annoying people like me with food allergies), cold drinks and AC. Although being Montreal, we could either be 40C or 15C and rainy. Meh.
- Eat and drink and share your unloved patterns / notions / fabric that you want to dump on someone else, if you so desire. Participation is definitely not mandatory, but usually the patterns you find fugly are sought after by someone else. No judgement.
- Whenever we are full, we'll roll ourselves over to rue St. Hubert and head north for a bit of shopping. There is apparently a street fair during that weekend, but we're not sure if that means deals or just that everyone is moving their inventory out to the sidewalk. We'll see.
- If we feel like it, we can always stop off for some liquid adult refreshment along the way. Let's leave it flexible depending on people's schedules / energy level / weather.
Please leave a comment below with your contact info and I'll add you to the list. Also, please re-blog to spread the word and feel free to steal any photos.
Hope to see you there!
