Amiee, I have spoken to Helen on the phone and she is keen on the theme of 'Sewing' too, so that makes 3 of us. With our small group that's is just about a unanimous decision lol!!!
So UNLESS anyone has a completely different idea then I think we should go with the DYI-SEWING idea for Real Nappy Week. And make as much progress as quickly as possible.
There will be plenty of work ahead for anyone who would like to help promote the Dunedin RNW, even if you are not a sewer! See below for just some of the jobs that require volunteers.
we'll need all of the finalised Info on the Dunedin Nappy Network site. (I'll message you about that).
(NEV Community Room seems the most obvious to me) any other suggestions?
My thinking is to promote the event as early as possible to give attendees enough time to gather the materials they will need, ie DIY kits or materials from Green beans; and have kits avialable on-the-day.
Money, we'll need to see how far our small amount of savings will take us regarding printing flyiers, posters etc.
Designer: We need a Logo-type banner designed to put onto promotional material. And cool layout for posters.
We need to know where we can put promo posters up.
Pre-sewers: We'll need patterns available and examples of nappies/covers at various stages of completion to help explain the next sewing step quickly and easily.
Timetable organiser: We'll need a comprehensive schedule for the actual week. Dividing each day/workshop up into sections etc.
Need to put together some of our own DIY kits of fabrics and notions available for purchase (sale price covers cost of materials).
Knitting instruction?? Helenz, Aimee?
