When is a pun too much?
Apparently… when you have two of them in the space of a single word with three syllables. Confusion has been abound, brought to my attention via Twitter. And fair enough, I say. So in the always important interest of correct pronunciation:
SewcieTea ≈ ‘Society’
And speaking of which, there’s only 7 days to go everyone, and this time next week we will all be prancing about in self-sewn clothes that make us feel fabulous, all ready to enjoy some champagne, tea and sweet deliciousness with 28 other sewing enthusiasts. And what would a catchup like this be without at least one interstate visitor? Yep, it’s all happening at the Gables on the 14th of April.
Thanks to you all so much for RSVPing, it makes organising an event like this so much easier. I’ve organised name tags for everyone (magnetic of course – no fabric will be harmed during the course of our luncheoning) as there will be plenty of newcomers.
If you’re not joining us and you want to be included… send me some pictures of you in your SewcieTea frock (poppykettle at gmail dot com) and I’ll include you in the Extravaganza!
See you all next week! x
Whoop whoop! Just emailed you my dress :-)
I still haven't made my dress! AAARRRGGGHHH! Guess what I'll be doing over the next week – if I can work out which pattern to make up, that is!
Oooooh! Have fun and take pictures!
Sigh… it all sounds so wonderful! Sooo jealous! ;)
I am beside myself with excitement!! Dress is 70% done but I've come down with a nasty chest infection. Will I make it in time?!
I still don't know what to wear! Aargh but see you there. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Sounds like so much fun!! Wish I could be there!
Wow, how fun! Have a great time!
I really want to come along! Can you have the next one in Birmingham (UK) please? Pretty please with a cherry on the top…?
Lady I'll be there! Haven't actually finished making anything yet, but I'll be there none the less :)
Gaah! My skirt isn't attached to my bodice and there is lace everywhere and I don't have shoes to match!!!!!!*sigh*. I'm going to need extra champers
I can't WAIT! I also don't know what shoes to wear, but my dress is almost done, it just needs to be hemmed!
And what a fabulous dress it is!
hehe. There is definitely such a thing as too much choice! Goodluck pulling it together!
oh, there will be pictures, don't you worry about that!
I would be too if I were you! :) hehe, thanks Amber!
I certainly hope so!!! Being a pharmacist, I'm hoping you're swallowing every compatible concoction under the sun! I can't wait either :)
hehe, I doubt you'll be the only one agonising… bring a few outfits and decide on the day! We're all looking forward to meeting you too!
We'd fly you in if we could, Sallie :)
We will!!!! :D
Maybe you need to arrange a UK SewcieTea? I'll let you borrow my fabulous pun?!?!
Excellent. You'll have to bring along the little man so we can all meet him!
Oh don't worry, I can arrange extra champers!! Fingers crossed for you… I'd so love for that lacy creation to be done in time!!
So excited to see the vintage Liberty come to life in dress form!!! I do hope the blue solid for contrast worked well for you :)
I keep saying/thinking saucytea. XS Why? X( This will remind me not to. =D
It did, it's perfect! Thanks again. I still need to give you moneys, how much do I owe you?
