Brenda (goal 100) and I are planning on celebrating PR Day here in Winnipeg and would love to have other Winnipeggers and Manitobans join us.

We have tossed around a few ideas for things to do that day but would love to hear from others in the area about what they would like to do.

Possibilities:

Show and Tell Potluck
Shopping - Economy Textiles, Marshalls, Mitchells are options
Coffee/Lunch
Expo Sharing -- we will be fresh back from the Minneapolis Expo
Fabric/Pattern Swap
Measuring Up/Fitting Assistance

Post here or send me a PM if you are interested in participating in our Winnipeg/Manitoba PR Day activities. Let us know what you would like to do that day or if you have other ideas not mentioned above.

I just got back from a trip and am still trying to get things sorted out and get back on track. I'm not all that computer literate so still have to figure out the logo thing. I don't blog, facebook or twitter so will have to rely on the PR board and PMs for communication.

Hope to hear from other Manitobans -- I know you're out there!!!!

Oh my goodness, I never thought there'd be a PR Day in Manitoba!!! I'll so be there with bells on! (Okay maybe not bells, but something me-made!) I'd love to go shopping with other fabricholics, and lunch/potluck/something involving tasties sounds great to me!

Hopefully I'll calm down soon so that I'll stop abusing exclamation marks!!! :D

I would be interested in attending this event. Is it necessary to be a member. I have a couple friends who might be interested as well. As far as what to do, I'm interested in everything except shopping (can do that anytime) and potluck (due to food allergies). Would love to do a fit/measure session.

I'd really be up for anything, although I would like to get in some shopping with other sewists, if enough people are interested. I never shop with others who sew, and I think it'd be a lot of fun, and also maybe a learning experience for me. I'm still pretty new to fabric shopping, and tend to stick to the easy-to-handle fabrics.

But honestly, just meeting up with other sewists would be great, and if we could get some fitting/measuring in, that could be really cool!

Welcome barebear and ILSewing -- so that makes at least 4 of us for PR Day Winnipeg/Manitoba.

Always love to share any kind of sewing adventures with others.

We are still planning the day and we hope to get more input as to what people would like to do. A measurement/fitting session is always beneficial for those who sew for themselves. I know since Brenda and I started getting together to sew on a weekly basis after PR Weekend Montreal last year, I have learned so much about fitting my own body. I've also learned that there's more than one way to do an alteration to get the fit you want.

Depending on the numbers I have a decent sized studio that we could use as a meeting place to do measurements if that's what we decide to do.

barebear -- if you'd really like to go shopping sometime, I'll send you a PM and we could even hook up before the PR Day. Let me know.

I am so looking forward to our PR Day!!!

Well I'm finally back with some tentative plans for Manitoba's PR Day -- would love to hear some feedback from those wishing to attend. So far it looks like we will be a small group.

Saturday November 19th

Measuring Up using Kathryn Brenne's Fit Workshop Chart -- a chance to get a full set of measurements with the help of a measuring/fitting buddy. Depending on our numbers, this would take place at my sewing studio.

Followed by lunch at a local restaurant

After lunch, we would go fabric shopping -- Marshalls/Northwest Fabrics, Economy Textiles and Mitchell's Fabrics are possible stops. Once I know numbers I'll contact each of these stores to let them know what we are doing.

barebear & ILSewing -- I'm sending you both a PM (ILSewing -- I tried to PM you but you have PMs turned off -- in answer to your question, your friends are welcome to attend our get-together)


For anyone interested in attending -- post here or send me a PM (if you are not a paying member, I will send you a PM once you post here).

Hi there! Sorry for the late response. I've been swamped with work and the Think Pink contest, and never got back here to respond.

I'm super excited to do this! And amazingly enough, I've never heard of Marshalls/Northwest Fabrics and Economy Textiles! I thought my only options in Winnipeg was Fabricland (blegh) or Mitchells. I will refrain from scurrying over to these places before the meet up!

I think the plans sound great. I'd love a chance to work out my full measurements. I have no sewing buddies around here, so I've never been able to do this!

...and a good tiime was had by all!!!

Perhaps we started a Winnipeg tradition: on the coldest day of this winter season - so far - we topped off the evening with a trip to The Marble Slab for ice cream!

Here's to many more "10 years"!!!

It's been several weeks since our PR Day 2011 Winnipeg Style and I still haven't had time to write up a "review" of our day -- business sewing & commitments have just gotten in the way.

Heather (barebear) has posted all about our day on her blog:

PR Day 2011 Winnipeg/Manitoba

What else can I say -- good food, liquid refreshments, retail therapy and spending time with sewing friends ... who could ask for anything more. We all had a great time and have tentative plans to get together on Dec. 17th for a sewing day. And then there's the sewing retreat in March that may lead to a group road trip.

Thanks Deepika for creating this amazing community -- both of my local sewing buddies have been found through Pattern Review.
