It was a hot steamy evening in September. Indian summers really do happen in the UK.
The September get together of the Norwich Sewcials was to be a quiz. Emma of Crafty Clyde and myself had racked our brains for quiz questions that would get everyone thinking but not be too obscure. We decided on half questions and half picture quiz.
Sadly we forgot to take any photos, imagine the scene.
Sewcialists gathered, settled into seats with a drink and the quiz sheets were handed out. We had been given the entire end of Cafe/Bar Marzarno this time so we had space and tables to work with. There was much discussion and occasional light hints given. This was meant to be fun after all.
The pattern and magazine swap was still available so as the quizzes were finished the patterns and magazines found new homes. The suggestion box has a new lid for filling with ideas and was ready and waiting.
The quiz sheets were collected up and re-distributed, making sure different sewcialists were marking. Answers were ticked off and discussed, o.k. half a mark for knowing that Vivien Westwood uses Harris tweed as well as Tartan/Plaid being her signature fabric.
The marks were close but the corner group had the edge, just.
The prize was a bundle of Alexander Henry fabrics, I’m looking forward to seeing what they make with them.
I think it was a success, here’s to the next one! Not next month though…
The next Norwich Sewcials night is a sewing surgery. October the 11th, come along and bring your queries, thoughts and join in the fun. All are welcome. It’s lovely to spend a couple of hours in the company of like-minded people. A friendly sewciable place to be.
