I'm planning to go to Sewing for Pleasure on Friday and wonder if anyone else is planning a trip.  I will probably return home with a load of stuff that I didn't know I needed until I saw it.

I hadn't heard of this event until you mentioned it.  Where is the venue?

Brum?  To far a stretch for me, I didn't even manage Olympia this year.  :D

I love SfP but I won't manage to go this year. I sometimes go to the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate in November - also good.

Oooh, yes a badge.

I'll be carrying this piece of fabric (for the Mystery quilt) and counting to 6 under my breath.

We considered making TSP badges and tote bags available at some point, but we needed to organise the ordering of them.

Maybe if there is a general desire for them we could get started sooner rather than later.

We thought totes would be fun as you can use them to stuff your fabric in!

I had a good visit to Sewing for Pleasure and managed not to spend too much, and I didn't buy any fabric although I was very tempted but I must use up some of the stash before adding to it.
