Meet Up at Nuneaton

For the last few years I have organised "Meet Ups" here in Nuneaton for fellow stitchers. These have been very successful - there were over 40 people at one event but usually the number is between 15 and 20. This will be the 6th Nuneaton Meet Up.

I have organised another one for this spring with stitchers from Jayne's Attic and Exchanges and Stitchalong Fun coming, but the event is open to anyone. I have put the details below if anyone is interested.

Some people are also staying over for the weekend (Friday and Saturday or just Saturday), there are three main hotel chains nearby, Travelodge, Premier Inn and Day's Inn. Nuneaton has very good train links and I can easily give anyone a lift from the station to the school. After the stitching day we go to a local pub for a meal which makes a lovely end to a great day.


SATURDAY 14th MARCH 10am - 4pm (plus meal time)

George Eliot Community School, Raveloe Drive, Nuneaton, CV11 4PQ

Tickets cost £3.50 - this covers hiring room, unlimited tea/coffee/squash etc on the day and a raffle ticket. Cost is per stitcher - so if DH, DD, DS or anyone else is coming then all they need to pay is £1 towards drinks. Please note - they will not receive a raffle ticket unless they pay the full price.

Please send cash, cheque (payable to C Hearnden) or postal order to me - if you don't have my address please email me.

I can post the ticket back to you or I can email the ticket for you to print. I will be keeping the raffle ticket to give out on the day.

Details I need:

Full name
Blog Name
Email address
Contact Phone Number (preferably mobile)
How you want to recieve your ticket (email or post)

On the day we have a goodie bag exchange, swop/sell tables and finished work displays (I love these). I will send details nearer the time for those who are coming.

Happy stitching and I hope to see you soon.

    I know people have had trouble in the past and it is sometimes due to the funny spellings - Clare has no "i" and Hearnden is just weird LOL

    Hope it works this time I would love to hear from you.
