The first staff meeting was held yesterday and it was awesome fun. I think all staff meetings should involve the purchasing of fabric and the eating of fine food.Upon arrival, attendees received their badges, unfortunately we didn't have a president but Jan admirably took on the role of Vice president. We also had a Tea-lady and a Work Experience girl. I was very sad to see that we had not attracted a rich patron, but who knows? Maybe at the next meeting.
The first order of business was the purchasing of fabric and it was noted that all staff performed admirably in this area. Some staff may have actually helped themselves to the yet-to-be-unwrapped bolts and one particularly zealous staff member went so far as to "help" by opening some boxes herself. (and no it wasn't me).
After that we headed next door for lunch and got down to business. Discussions ranged from one end of the spectrum to the other and the difficult questions were posed. "What is the difference between a mug-rug and a coaster?" Bold statements were made: " I just don't speak Bunting" and new ideas formed.
It was a perfect day for a get-together and great fun to meet Bellinda ,I can't wait to do it again - although the calendar is looking a little scary at the moment. I'm off to sewjourn again this weekend but don't be jealous, its not all swanning about and crafty holidays - I am teaching Reuben the Donkey at the Drapers of Mt Macedon on Saturday.
other than that I'll be working on numbers four five and six of a brand new toy. His name is Algar (of course) and I really really like him.
