meet me in melbourne

Come one come all

If you're a blogger and in Melbourne on Sunday June 17, would you like to meet a few other bloggers? The (almost) no rule Meet Me in Melbourne bloggers gathering will be in the Flagstaff Gardens in the afternoon from 2pm onwards in the vicinity of the kids' playground, near the junction of Peel, William and Franklin Streets. You can come in any guise for as long or short a time as you like. BYO picnic paraphernalia if you so desire - perhaps some afternoon tea to share.

The only rule? A name tag with who you are and the name of your blog.

And no excuses, like you don't know anyone or are worried your type of blog won't fit in. It's the perfect opportunity to get in touch with some of your on-line acquaintances and plan to meet up. We all share the desire to connect to each other through our blogs, so I'm sure none of us are too scary in real life.

Of course being Melbourne, the weather is something of a lottery.

Please check on the morning of the meet for latest details and weather contingency plans at any of the following blogs

soozs big adventure



If you'd like to help us spread the word (even if you can't come in person) please copy and paste this post to your blog. We're working hard to bring you one of those groovy badges so stay tuned.

I don't live in Melbourne, so sadly I can not "meet in Melbourne". I just wanted to let you know I love you banner! The felt (I think its felt) looks so beautiful. I wish I owned such felt in my stash.

A lovely idea, and I hope you get lots of crafty bloggers turning up. I would love to come, but will be girling it up with my best friend in daylesford that weekend. I will however, help to spread the word.

can you come if you're merely an avid reader of blogs? even if your craftblog has nothing in it, and this comment is the first time you've ever actually de-lurked?

oh, i do hope so. i'd love me some crafty community.
