    Thanks for the lovely BBQ Lorraine and everyone! Too bad the weather didn't cooperate! Here is the recipe for the quinoa salad: http://www.alive.com/recipes/view/197/quinoa_spring_salad_with_simple_cider_vinaigrette . I omitted some of the ingredients. I was really impressed with Linda's mobile craft station, and love my beautiful bracelet - thanks Lorraine! Hope to see all you ladies soon!

    I woke up with a migraine this morning. The pain killers haven't helped much, so I won't be able to make it. I was to bring a salad, which is sitting ready in the 'fridge. I am so sorry, I was really looking forward to this.

    I'm so sorry, I can't meet up this Monday, sudden change of plans. Who do I need to inform?
    Also, is there a group closer to Nepean?

    April 29, 2014

    • Kelly

      Also, our group is composed of crafters from all over the city. We often run events in different locations. We've run a couple of events in Westboro and would be open to running them in Nepean if we can find a suitable place to meet - do you have any suggestions?

      April 29, 2014

    • Lorraine Savage D.

    Hi everyone, I am a little shy but look forward to meeting you all. This is my first meetup! Excited. I am currently interested in knitting but need help sewing projects so they look neat. Any experienced knitters coming to the meetup?

    April 29, 2014

    • Kelly

      Hi Brenda, thanks for joining the group today and RSVPing to this event. I should let you know that the date has been changed to June 14th instead of this upcoming Sunday. I hope you can still attend! We also have a few events coming up in May that will be super fun as well! Hope to see you there!

      April 29, 2014

    • Lorraine Savage D.

      Also Brenda on June 14 it's a BBQ and craft if your interested

      April 29, 2014

  • Kelly

    Hi everyone,
    I'm not sure that everyone got my email about this event (I notice there are 2 new folks who just RSVP'ed today who might have missed the email). Lorraine and I were discussing it and we feel like there is a lot coming up in May and we'd prefer to move the event to June when the weather is nicer and we can combine it with a BBQ. I hope this works for everyone and you can still all attend. I think it's going to be super fun!
