Montreal Sewing Meetup on May 25

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone would like to go to a sewing meetup in Montreal, and the answer was a definite “yes”. Yay!

So I am happy to announce that this coming Saturday, May 25, there will be a sewing meetup at 2 p.m. We’ll meet at Caffé Mille Gusti on St-Zotique. It’s very close to Saint-Hubert, but it’s a bit small, so if lots of people RSVP, we may change the location. Be sure to RSVP yourself to get any updates.

For those taking the public transportation, the nearest metro station is Beaubien.

We’ll grab coffee at 2 p.m and have a quick pattern exchange (bring those patterns that just aren’t for you). Then we’ll hit the fabric shops on Saint-Hubert: EffilochéCouture-ElleRubans, Boutons and more (or less, if everyone finds what they need right away). We may also try Saint-Laurent. Montreal has some great fabric shops, but there is so much to choose from that it can be overwhelming, at least for me. I need a second opinion. That could be you!

Out-of-towners are welcome and having a blog is entirely optional. If you are worried about language, don’t. All the shop clerks will speak both English and French.

Si vous êtes francophone, soyez la bienvenue. Je serai heureuse de converser avec vous dans la langue de votre choix. Je blogue surtout en anglais (question de paresse), mais je suis complètement bilingue – à part quelques coquilles ici et là 😉

I know some people would have preferred a different date, but that means only one thing! We’ll just have to have another meetup. I just hope my fabric budget can take it.

If you would like to RSVP, send me a quick email so I know how many people to expect. See you then!

Here are some buttons for you as well.

  1. Oh I would love to be there….but will be on my way to Ottawa for the Marathon, but will definitely be in next time!

      1. Oooh! That sounds fun. When we all get together on Saturday I’ll bring it up. And yes, I’d love it to be a regular outing as well.
