July Needlework Night next Thursday 07/18/2013


I can’t believe how fast July is zooming by!

Please join us for another installment of Needlework Night at Colette Patterns World Headquarters. We’re doing it a little earlier in the month this month, since I will be out of town the following week and didn’t want to miss the fun.

We had a lot of trouble using EventBrite last time and taking small donations for food, so this time we’re just doing a simple Facebook event and you can feel free to bring anything you’d like to share for food and drink. Easy peasy.

Oh, and I’ll try to remember to take pictures this time!

When: July 18
Where: Colette Patterns studio in SE Portland
See our event on Facebook to RSVP and get the address.

Sounds great! Would anybody in the Seattle area be interested in having a party of our own a little further up I-5 from Portland?

Yes please!

Great! Hey Seattleites, email me at shannon at orangecloudhandmade dot com, and we’ll set something up!

I sooooo wish I could join you. I could work on my Hawthorn collar!

Just a bit of a drive from Houston TX, lol.

That sounds so lovely, but like the drive from Houston, TX, mine would be a bit long from Duluth, MN. If I ever make it to Portland, which is a dream of mine, I hope I can look up the studio and stop in to visit. Have fun!

So much fun, I wish I could join! Will be looking forward to the pictures :-)

(There are so many creative bloggers/crafters in the Portland area, it’s amazing! I have to visit some day)

I’d love to come, but I’m not on Facebook. Could you accept a blog comment in place of a Facebook “yes”?
