Hi Ladies,

I am not currently a paying member, so I cannot send private messages.

I did not get to last years Victoria Sewing Show, but hope to go for Saturday this year.

I am not thrilled about the new venue, but if anyone else is going, maybe we could meet up?

Hi Michelle

Just read your message today, as I am not on the site too often anymore. I will be going to the show. There is Montana's and Kelsey's at the Tillicum Mall for restaurant food, and then there is only A & W , Edo's(not sure I'm spelling it correctly - the Japanese fast food place) and Starbucks. If you decide you want to go to any of these for dinner or something quick, just post here on the thread and I will be happy to meet up with you. I will try checking the site more often this coming week. I also have a friend that may want to come eat.

Who knows, the venue might turn out to be good for the sewing show. What I was disappointed in when I read the brochure earlier was that some of the Thursday all day events were downtown, and some weren't, but it was not stated which all day classes were downtown, and which ones were to be at Pearkes, so I didn't book for any of the Thursday all day classes.

One good thing about Pearkes is that the parking should be free, but I don't know how crowded the parking will get.

Take care and happy sewing.

Hi Althene,

I will most likely only be there on Saturday. I will be carrying my Pattern Review Bag.

I am up to meeting for dinner or just meeting for coffee/tea at Starbucks.

OMG! I live in AB but I may be out visiting my parents during the Sewing Show. Can't believe my luck. Would love to meet up with your folks. And the Show's location is close to where my parents live.

Hi Elsa,

It would be great to meet you.

We will have to give some thought to a meet up place and time. I have not yet bought my tickets, | was going to see which classes had room in them when I got there.

I am not familiar with the lay out of the Pearkes Rec Centre, so I have no idea about possible meet up places inside.

I do not know what I will be wearing, but I will be carrying my PR shopping bag. I am 5'4" too close to 200 lbs for my own good, have shoulder length red hair (with streaks) and glasses. I will see if I can find my name badge from where I used to work. That will make it easier to find me.

Oh I guess you need my name... Michelle Tothill and being that I am named Michelle, I was born just after the Beatles song came out which makes me 45.

Hi Michelle
Dinner is good, or just meeting up at Starbucks mid day or dinner time is fine.
I hope to go Friday and Saturday.
Will post on the site here again prior to the show. We could always try meeting just at the entrance, or I will send you a PM prior to the show.
Else, yes it would be so nice if we could all meet for coffee or something.

As Starbucks is right in the same mall and only a walk across the parking lot from Perkes , it would probably easy to meet there unless you guys have something else in mind.

What ever everyone wants, I game for. I know I will be busy working all week, but I will definitely check the PR site here before the show.
I will try to post Friday evening on the site and let you know what I think of the show

Sorry Ladies, I will not be able to meet for dinner. I just learned that a memorial service for a co-worker is Saturday at 6:00.

I do hope I can meet up with some of you during the day.

Unfortunately my brother and I aren't able to make it out this weekend. But do have a good time. I would have enjoyed meeting up.
