It looks like everybody had such a good time at the LA PR weekend.

Is there a regular schedule of these events? Or are they more loosely planned? Is planning for the next one underway?

I'd be very interested in attending one.

Hey Kellie,

This was the first year for LA. Deepika started that thread and took a poll on date.

PR Weekend NYC usually happens in November. But, last year there was some discussion about changing the time of year to cut down on costs. Deepika also polls dates based on her schedule.

I can't speak to the European ones. But, with enough planning I may even do one of those one year!

HTH

Kellie, you would have sich a great time at a PR weekend! It is totally up your alley. For me, HYC PR weekend was the most worthwhile personal vacation (i.e., without the family) I've ever done. I'm watching for the next one, too!

I told my husband about these and he said "Go and have fun."

I've never been to NY and what a fun reason to go and visit!

Hi Cindy-Lou!
I was wondering if there could be some sort of "symbol" (like stars & PR ribbon near our names) that would signify, "I've been there!! I attended a PR Week-end!!"
Whatdoyathink??
Rhonda, who's waiting for her turn, too!!

Rhonda, that might be tough... but I'll forward on to the brains of this operation (Deepika ) and see what she thinks.

Cheers!

I am a new member at Pattern Review and I am hooked. I have a friend who is an accomplished seamstress and we were talking about going to NY in the Fall. On reading the message board I see a note on the PR weekend in NY each fall. I am really interested in going and I am sure I can talk my friend into going. I will be following the message board for future info.

Please, keep watching the board for more info! Last year there was talk of moving the next NYC trip to spring, because hotels are so much more affordable then... but nothing's laid in stone yet. It really is great to get to know all the people you read about all the time.

Glad you're addicted!
