Winter hasn’t started and I’m thinking about spring. I live in denial of winter. I think if I ignore it, it will simply go away. Unsurprisingly it does… after three long months.
Last night I had dinner with Helen Funkbunny and Lee-anne, one of my sewing friends I’ve met through Instagram. I’m always amazed and grateful for the many fabulous and wonderful people I’ve met through sewing and blogging.
In the last 18 months I’ve ploughed through 25,000kms in my car. Fortunately I enjoy driving! During my many travels for work/family/sewing/social reasons, lots of people have expressed an interest in coming to my hometown. So I’m calling your bluff.
I’ve done some initial investigations. I’ll provide a room for you to come and sew in spring (excessive amounts of chatting & laughter is also welcome). I guess it’s a little Seaside Spring Sewaway – just for fun. You can sew as much as you like. Or sew less & visit our beautiful beaches, enjoy the sunshine (touch wood) and have a nice meal or two. It’s up to you.
Port Macquarie is a popular holiday destination & we have quite a lot of big events throughout the year as well… which means there are some weekends when the town is extremely busy and that means finding accommodation or somewhere to eat can be challenging.
My last two weeks of September is taken up with one of my daughter’s (rather obsessive) dancing commitments.
I’ve been checking the calendar and the best options are
- the long weekend at the beginning of October (3-4)
- the second weekend (10-11)
- the fourth weekend (24-25) or
- fifth weekend (31 Oct – 1 Nov).
The third October weekend is out as that’s a Half Ironman weekend – the town is packed with crazy Lycra-clad people.
From November until late January my work life & end-of-year kids’ activities are in overdrive. Plus it’s peak summer holiday season here – our town population explodes & it’s not as relaxing as a ‘normal’ weekend.
Just let me know which weekends work best for you. Unfortunately I know October might not suit anyone but I probably won’t have another opportunity until this time next year or even later.
I know it’s not the most convenient location but it is beautiful (well to me anyway and I’m happy to share it with you). Port Macquarie is four hours drive from Sydney, six & a half hours from Brisbane – or about a hour flight from either.
Nominate a weekend/s below or drop me an email – you can find that on my ‘About Me’ page.
