This is inspired by member Wai who often comes up with useful tips and sources. There have been loads of tips, exhibitions and offers on it so thanks to all who contributed. The idea is that if you come across useful info- a tutorial on a blog, a pattern sale, a workshop, a discount offer that you would like members to know about then put it in the comments column. If you blog and have just put up a post then you can let us know here. Do you know of an show or exhibition?, have you found a new fabric source, a dressmaking site, a new pattern release? - anything that would interest members- then just add a comment with the details.
I will date the "meetup" to the end of each month so you can post comments for the whole of November and then will start a fresh one for December.
