Now, Dewsbury isn’t all that close to southern Germany. In fact (and embarrassingly) I had to look up where Dewsbury is – so when I read Ali’s post about the next sewing meetup on 25 February and remembered all the reports about last year’s meetup and the fun everybody was having I cried a little tear about how sad it was that I couldn’t come.
And then as you do I convinced myself that flying over to England was a totally stupid and completely unfeasible idea, that it would cost hundreds and take days.
Only then I discovered that in fact I could leave my place of work on the Friday, have lunch, take the subway to Nuremberg airport and be in Manchester 2 hours later on Friday afternoon. And the flight would set me back all of 30 Euros.
And so: I’m coming!!!! I’m actually coming to the Dewsbury sewing meetup and I’m already SOOO excited. So much so, in fact, that going back to work today was hardly noticed although I always dread the start after the Christmas break.
So I hope to see as many of you as possible in Dewsbury. I will have to be very select in my fabric shopping as I’m travelling with hand luggage only (or I will have to wear several lengths of fabric as scarves or skirts on the flight home ;-), but I’m coming for the chat anyway.
It’s going to be my first time in Yorkshire, apart from a couple of very quick visits to York, so I hope to do a little bit of hiking on the Sunday. Any tips on Shaun the Sheep inspired landscapes are welcome – the more stereotypical the better!
