Britex Fabrics Workspace Launch Party!

LATEST UPDATE: PLEASE DO NOT JOIN THE WAIT LIST

Go to Britex Fabrics's events page and register there. Only the first 25 people who RSVP'd here are automatically in. If you are one of those folks, please check your email b/c I had to split the group so the first 13 people must come at 1 pm and the next 12 at 3 pm. Names are listed in that email.

I didn't delete the wait list in case someone who RSVP'd couldn't make it. I repeat, if you want to attend the event, go to Britex Fabrics's events page: http://www.britexfabrics.com/events

Thank you!

**************************************************

Hey, Sewists! 

*********UPDATE No. 1*****************

Britex Fabrics will be making this a registered event, with entry staggered by blogger talk. The 25 people on the RSVP list will NOT need to register because they will already have your names via Bay Area Sewists. However, for everyone who is currently on the wait list, you will need to register via Britex's event page. They will be updating the event description on Monday, June 2. So please register there. 

They also say: "We are very sorry that we may not be able to have everyone join us, but judging by the very positive response, we will probably host a similar event again soon. During event hours, the 4th floor will mostly be closed to shoppers."

NOTE: If you cannot make this event, please update your RSVP by 12 pm, Fri., June 27, so someone on the wait list can take your place.

*******END OF UPDATE*********************

I contacted Britex Fabrics lovely marketing manager Geana Sieburger about making their fun launch party a meetup date for us and she said YES! However, I have to limit our RSVPs to 25. Meetup members also get a 10% discount on regularly priced fabrics that day.

I'll be there for the first couple of hours and will have name tags for everyone who RSVPs. So if you come during that time, just find me and I'll give you a name tag. I'll be wearing a hat so just keep your eye out for me on the 4th floor!

Here are the details from Britex's website:

    Some of the talks were nicely inspiring, and the social aspect of so many sewists, new & old faces for me, was fabulous!

      Lisa - please register on Britex's site if you want to attend. Only the first 25 Bay Area Sewists members will get in via our meetup page. I don't think enough people will cancel in time for you to get off the waitlist (read the meetup description for detiail). But you can get in if you register on BritexFabrics.com/events­ page.

      Sorry you can't make it! Please change your RSVP status to "no" and then whoever's first on the wait list will automatically take your place. See you at the next one!

    Too bad, I have a commitment that day that kind of conflict with this meetup. I might be able to come but very late. So I leave my place for someone else.

      Also, I have RSVPed and expect I'll be there, but my sister's expecting a baby, and you know how they are--anything could happen! :-)

      May 23, 2014

    • Chuleenan

      Yes, it is open to the public so you can just show up. Geana is out of town but she may get back to me next week about increasing the RSVPs.
