Calling All Essex Girls

I'm contemplating hiring a hall & organising a (free of charge) Papertrey Ink Make & Take in a bid to bring together local crafters & meet new people - is anyone interested in this? x

Oh I so wish I could be an Essex Gal LOL!! Why must my friend live so far away!
The fact that it's not just a buffet but an M&S buffet as well really has me jealous (gotta love quality food!) OH and this as well as PTI, could this be the nearest to Heaven I'll get? ;D Well I'm definitely interested but obviously dependent on dates and pennies for train fare!
Love,
