I am a newish (UK born) blogger based in Belgium. I am visiting my niece in Auckland, NZ, in March(2013). I would love to meet up with other sewers/sewists. Would anyone be interested?
My lovely OZie friend Val (valeriesownsewingblog.blogspot.com)
is planning to be there too. Please let me know if there is any chance of a meet up and where - I don't want to presume on my niece TOO much !!!!!! so I'm not offering her home - yet!!!!!

Great! Looking forward to meeting you (and picking your brain about sewing in Auckland and just generally chatting about sewing).
I'm in Auckland for almost all of March - my sewing sister (same birth parents - in-joke, but will explain if you are mildly interested) will also be there. In fact it is her daughter we are staying with.
I'm excited already!

Goosegreen (great name!)
I'm sure that Auckland sewers could fit in another getogether for you.
I know that if anyone (sewer, that is) was visiting Brussels, I would drop everything, with no hesitation at all, to meet up.
We sewers are considerate like that!
Obsessive,perhaps, but when did that become a bad thing?

If you are here on Saturday 2 March you could come to the sewing guild meeting and meet lots of other sewists. In any case, my cel number is oh two one eight one three one one five. I would love to hear from you when you get here.

Thanks Leslie. I don't think I'll have reaches Auckland by then. But I shall note the phone number.
