    AFA DOWNUNDER LIVE MEET SYDNEY 2015

    AFA DOWNUNDER MEET
    Wednesday 30th September - Friday 2nd October 2015
    SYDNEY – AUSTRALIA




    Waldorf Apartments – Rosehill Sydney (Parramatta)

    Ok Here we go again! After another highly successful Downunder Meet in New Zealand, Sydney was lucky enough to get the vote for the next live meet for 2015. This has been set down for the last day in September and the first few days in October 2015 - I know a long way off at present - but that date will come around very quickly.

    There are more and more of us AFA'ers in Australia and New Zealand and the number is growing.

    The event hosts will be Cathy1, Mouseit, D-Dazzled71, Mimi and Jonquil and if judging by the last Meet, we are in for a load of fun.

    The event will be held at the Waldorf Apartments – Rosehill Sydney (Parramatta), about 1 hour from Sydney International airport (we can pick you up), or there is a pre-need-to-book shuttle bus to the door. We will be just a trains ride from all the tourist locations, with the added pleasure of only being 5 minutes from the Craft shop.
    Alice from AliceinPaperland has gone to a lot of effort on our behalf to find us decent, affordable Motel, although it says Apartments its actually rooms or suites whatever you wish to have. If you are wanting to book room/s, we have not yet decided if we will do it as a block booking or if individuals want to book their own rooms. This will be our first question to those attending.

    We are looking for an indication of interest only at this stage so we can gauge numbers - so post to this thread and I will compile a list of those interested.

    We have Alice in AliceinPaperland offering some great classes and also anyone who would like to offer to do a class of some technique or craft, please let me know asap as there is an information sheet to fill in for the program.


    So who is joining Donnacr, Mouseit, D-Dazzled71 and Mimi, Jonquil in a glass of champagne (or Baileys) to kick off the event????

    I will keep the list below update: We will have some supporters following us from afar and we hope to update you as to happenings during our time together. Others will be attending the event and I will note that on the list as well.

    COMING:
    Mouseit
    D-Dazzled71
    Donnacr
    Kiwicsi
    Win-G-Girl
    Mesektet
    4 Ladies from Port Macquarie
    3 Ladies from Sydney

    Jonquil - Maybe

    FOLLOWING:
    Cathy1 - Athon Hostess
    Platypus
    Vikinglady

    Will be sure to attend. This gives me the opportunity to launch into the world of ATC's first hand.
    It will be so special to be able to meet people from other beautiful lands.
    May I give a huge welcome from down under.
    Endless thanks for those who have arranged this event and given us the platform for such wonderful opportunity.
    with much gratitude,
    winggirl.

    I am definitely looking at coming! I.m not sure about Mimi though Mouseit, I haven't spoken with her in ages, you may need to email her the details as I don't think she is active much here on AFA.

    QUESTION 1: Do you members that are attending want to book your own rooms or do you want us to book them in a block?

    Well, having never been to one before, I'm not sure how to answer, but I'll try.

    1. I think I would prefer them booked as a block because that sounds easier for me. However, it sounds more difficult for whoever has to book them, so I don't mind if I have to book my own.

    2. Could you tell us what kind of techniques were shown last year?
