One of the best ways to get to know other members of the Stitch community is by creating and attending events.
Sydney based Community Champion, Linda, wrote the following post about her own experiences as the organizer of the Inner West Brunch Bunch, a monthly (and popular!) Stitch get-together where locals meet and get to know one another at various cafes across Sydney’s Inner West.
In 2018, the Inner West Brunch Bunch met about once a month on Sunday mornings to enjoy good food and coffee at cafes around Sydney’s Inner West.
The company was always convivial and the food usually delicious. At each brunch there were new people, as well as the consistent core group throughout the year. Thanks particularly to Rhonda, Coralee, Kathy, Vivian, Margaret, Mary, and Ros for your consistent brunchiness!
There were usually between 10 and 15 people at each brunch, mostly women, but sometimes a brave man or two would make an appearance. A few even came back a second time; we’d be delighted to see more men join us in 2019. If you enjoy good conversation, this is the brunch to be at!
Venues ranged from the home-style comfort of Café on Johnston in Annandale to the wonderful service and food of Penny Lane Café in Rozelle, with stops along the way at the Farmer and Butcher in Harold Park Tramsheds, Envy Café in Summer Hill, Effende Turkish in Balmain, and our Christmas brunch at The UTS Rowing Club in Haberfield.
In 2019, we will be trying new venues (The Watershed in Drummoyne is our starting point) as well as revisiting our favourites (particularly Café on Johnston and Penny Lane Café).
I think it’s fair to say that these brunches have been enjoyable and fun and I look forward to seeing even more people at them in 2019!
Best wishes to everyone for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2019.
