Shepherds Bush fabric shopping and meetup

Shall we do another sewing group meeting in Shepherds Bush? The Bush Theatre cafe/bar is a lovely place that we went to after our fabric shopping expedition in June.

 

This meetup is in two parts and you can come to either or both:

  • At 2pm we'll start off by meeting at the Goldhawk Road Tube Station, outside & to the right of the exit, and visit some of the fabric shops in the area.
  • At 5.30pm we'll head to The Bush Theatre cafe/bar for an evening chatting, crafting and inspecting our purchases.

The theatre is on the corner of Uxbridge Road and Pennard Road (the former public library site) at the top end of the Shepherds Bush Green triangle.

    Hey, I was at the Bush Theatre but they were nobody... :( I arrived a bit late but nobody in the staff of Bush Theatre know any event related to crafting and so on. I'm disappointed as I wanted to have some piece of advices concerning sewing and to meet people !

    I recently acquired a sewing machine and have attempted some VERY simple things. Went to Goldhawk Road a couple of weeks ago but was so bamboozled by all the fabrics, I came home with nothing! :) Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    I am so excited abou this! I will make sure that I come armed with a list so that I don't go mad and buy too much fabric!

    Hiya! Weekend is a little messy at the moment, I'll see what I can do but possible that have to drop out in the last minute.

    Really sorry, especially Giselle, but I have to visit my family - I won't be able to make it. See you at the next meeting.

  • Giselle

    Oh stash-busting, yes! I would LOVE to do that!!
    I need motivation, a reason to make myself sew and just get on with it!
    Does anyone want to do either a Sew-along or otherwise one of those what do you call thems? You pick a time to sit down & sew, and compare notes later about how you did?
    Is anyone up for that?

      Sorry, that was confusing. I meant do both as in a) Jenny's meet-up on one occasion and b) the sprint thing another time.

      Oops just realised I may have my weekends confuzzled. I mean the weekend of 27th/28th October!

    Having this in my diary will encourage me to do some stashbusting sewing, to ensure that I have enough room for the extra fabric that I am going to purchase!

    The plan is to pop into a select few fabric shops (there are too many to do them all) and then go along to the Bush Theatre Bar for coffee or drinks, comparing fabrics and maybe even a bit of sewing or knitting while we're there!
    The last time we went to the Bush Theatre bar on a Saturday afternoon there was quite a bit of space. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it'll be like it was in June.

    ok count me in

  • Natasha

    I would love this! Great idea

    The cafe/bar is open Mon-Sat until 11pm. I popped in and asked - if there is no special event on then then there should be space as normal. Theatre attendees will go in at 7.30pm and after that it gets very quiet.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
