    You know if the airfare alone wasn't $2000, I would definitely be there!

    Ok girls we are looking for someone in Sydney or around Sydney, who will be driving in, who can be our "Send to" person. Those of us who fly in will send tools, gifts, baggie goodies etc so we don't have to carry them on planes.

    Any Takers???

    Kiwi, I have spoken to her, but she hasn't said yes or no yet, I am assuming she will be coming...

    I am tired of waiting for my husband's job to be finalised - I have made him promise that I can fly to Sydney no matter where we are! I guess if you have me down as a tutor I had better turn up

    With the group booking of the rooms I am planning on arriving a day early so that I can get over my 2 days of travelling (I can't sleep on planes or in waiting. . .and waiting. . .and waiting rooms). Have we any more information on what is happening with the rooms?

    Forgot to mention that I will be bringing some little knick knacks from Indonesia for our goodies bags.
    Can't find any craft things here but very good at finding lots of little touristy things.

    Sounds great Donna, glad you got that promise...LOL That makes us 7....

    I am planning on being there at least 2 days ahead of everyone else, maybe 3 just so I can get things organised - like the goodie bags. Touristy things will be great.

    As to Booking rooms, I will talk to Alice this week so we know where we are, as she was overseas, but should be back now....

    Thanks for all your chasing around for us Ruth - it is much appreciated!!

    If you would like some help with the goody bags, etc just tell me what date you are arriving and I will see if I can arrive at a similar time.

    So that I can do some preparation for my lesson on iris folding - have any of the people coming to the Meet done this before?

    I am planning on having some pre-cut cards for you to use so I need to know what sort of standard to aim for. The only supplies that you will need will be a roll of 6mm double sided tape and something to cut it with - it would be helpful if you could bring a craft knife but not necessary.

    It still is a maybe with regards to this meet. I'm just needing an answer from the hubby on dates he needs to be away etc. If he is away the same time I am then it's a matter of a house/dog sitter. Stay tuned ... I wouldn't want to miss this meet. I had so much fun with you crazy women last year and would love also the opportunity to meet more AFA members. I'll check back with y'all soon.

    Ok girls, I have now spoken to Alice - we have been playing phone tag for quite some time...LOL

    Alice has offered us 2 classes : One a journaling one (thought you all would like that) and there is a new developer of Australian ink stamps that she is offering a class in.

    So we have for classes:
    1. Journaling
    2. Iris Folding
    3. Ink Stamping
    4. My Class - I forget what its called
    5. If I can talk Dani into sharing something we will be well on the way to having a program.

    Any further suggestions or have I missed someone's offer of a class?
    (VikingLady - always room for you to do a class if you are coming)

    Now Accommodation..... see next post!

    ACCOMMODATION:
    Alice is looking into our accommodation on Monday, (she is away at her 2nd store til then) to make sure we all get our Group booking discount, so she will be talking to them and giving them a password so to speak so that you can all book separately we use the password as this is the best option for her. (Sorry if anyone finds this difficult please contact me personally and I will see what I can do)

    She will also be talking to them about the cost of the "crafting" room to see how expensive that will be, as we share the costs. I have also asked her to look at the cost of a suite that has 2 bedrooms and a BIG Lounge that we could craft in if the room is to expensive, to see if this will cut our costs down...... I await for Monday or Tuesday!

    This sounds like fun! Maybe if it's still running in a few years I'll be able to abandon the girls with their dad and come along
