Hello fellow New Yorkers. Anyone interested in helping put together a PR Day for November 19th?? I live in Upstate NY but can get to the city if that's where someone is that wants to help with this. Otherwise, anyone near the Twin Tiers area??

Hi Laura, So what are you thinking?? Are you familiar with the city? I have been there several times but my hubby is always my tour guide (i'm directionally impaired at best! Lol). I love the Garment District! Whatever thoughts you have, please share. Thanks, Andrea

Hi there -
well being rather new to this group, and a "reborn" sewer, I might just know enough to be dangerous!
Here are a few ideas - consider these a total brainstorm:
- shop the garment district fabrics and notions (would be great to have someone who really knows the people and places - I have a list but by no means an expert on those places).
- take a class. No idea on viability of this - but I did recently buy Diana Rupp's online sewing class - it was truly amazing- she is a great instructor and has a teaching/workshop location on the lower east side.
- maybe there's an interesting exhibit - Parson's, FIT, museums - an idea.
All of the above would be too much for one day - but some food for thought. What were you thinking of?

Personally I love the class idea, and of course Garment District shopping. I'll look into a one day class to see if there is anything available. If not, than shopping it is. (And yummy food).

I NEED at least 5 people to do the PR Day in NYC!! Here is what I propose. We can set up a party at the Sewing Studio in Garment District.
I have copied and pasted what they offer so please have a look below and let me know if you are interested.

Enjoy a chic sewing party where you and your guests learn a multitude of machine-sewing skills and each complete a stylish sewing project from start to finish!

• Birthday Party • PJ Party • Bachelorette Party •
• Bat Mitzvah • Baby Shower • Purse Party •

Express your creativity and explore your domestic prowess with a sewing party at The Sewing Studio!

Basic Sewing Party
A Basic Sewing Party has every attendant leaving with a completed customized sewing project and includes the use of our sewing machines and all required fabric, supplies, and notions. A snack is also included. (Please inform us ahead of time of any allergies.) There is a 15% charge to bring outside food or drink. 4 hours.

Up to six attendants = $300
Seven to 10 attendants = $400
11-15 attendants = $500
16-18 attendants = $600

Sewing Party Package
Take our Basic Sewing Party and add decadent cupcakes, pizza for everyone, party decorations, and a $25 studio gift card for each party participant plus their own take-away sewing kit. 4 hours.

Up to six attendants = $400
Seven to 10 attendants = $550
11-15 attendants = $650
16-18 attendants = $725

Champagne Sewing Party
Start with our Basic Sewing Party and add champagne, decadent cupcakes, and an abundance of girl time. Each party attendant receives a $25 gift card for a sewing class plus their own take-away sewing kit. Don’t worry, we’ll help you choose an ultra stylish project that’s perfect for fashion mavens and sewing newbies. $60/person (min. 8 ppl), 3 hours.

Hi there,
Well it looks like we don't have enough interest in the NYC PR Day so I will not be planning a trip there on the 19th. Too bad, the class looked fun. Maybe next year. Thanks for showing interest. Have a great day!!

Hi,
Since we don't have enough interest in the NYC PR Day, I will not be planning a trip to the city on the 19th. Maybe next year we will have more members that are interested. Have a great week.
