November 28th, 2011 is when PatternReview.com turns 10 years old. So we figured instead of just having one party here in Massachusetts, why don't we have multiple meet ups around the world? After all, PR members are everywhere.

So I picked November 19th as the official day for the party. This way we can have meetups in different parts of the world on the same day.

Currently there are 12 different PR Days in the works.

1. Boston, Mass (Organizer - Deepika)
2. Austin, Texas (Organizer - Leslie in Austin)
3. Long Beach, California ( Organizer - Kathi Rank)
4. Seattle, Washington (Organizer - Jacqui315)
5. DC Area (Organizer- Nikki)
6. London, Ontario (Organizer- Connie BJ)
7. Winnipeg/Manitoba (Organizer- SheBear0320)
8. Minneapolis/St Paul (Organizer- Sharon M)
9. Philadelphia (Organizer- Karen6790
10. PR Day St. Louis (Organizer chelsy21)
11. Indianapolis (Organizer lbreton)
12. Copenhagen, DENMARK (Organizer MariaDenmark)


But, I am posting this now so we can start many more. If you're interested in hosting a PR Day in your area, let me know and I'll add it to the list.

What is happening on the PR Day?

1. Meet up
2. Show and Tell
3. Maybe Fabric shopping

or whatever it is that you want to do! We might even have a cake! I am planning to bake one for the meet up here in Mass

So what do you say? Will you attend one of these three or will you start your own?

Tell us if you'll attend

I want to organize PR Day in my area

Oh this sounds like a fantastic day. Will there be a way for all of us to talk to each other?

I would definitely like to be an organizer for Tampa FL if I were here that day. I will be on a cruise...I always miss the "good stuff"! Have fun & hopefully someone will coordinate one here so we can have future group meet ups!!

Nikki,

All you need to do is tell me the name of the town/city and I'll set it up. As an organizer all you'll have to do is plan what you want to do that day and just generally lead the group that day. And then of course promote your PR Day on your own too.

In fact Sharon suggested that we do a challenge to see who can gather most number of people to their PR Day

I've just confirmed that I will attend the one in Austin.

I look forward to seeing my sewing friends again! Yay!
