We're going to have us a Dulaan Project Knit-In Potluck on November 4, 2006 from noon to 6 pm.What Will We Be Doing?
The location: the quite lovely John Evans Alumni Center at Northwestern University, 1800 Sheridan Road, Evanston. We have the entire ground floor, comprising the Edwardian-era library, sun porch, breakfast room, conservatory, and dining room. It's terribly grand, yet cosy.
The Alumni Association is graciously donating use of the space for the day. There's ample free parking all around.
We'll be knitting (or crocheting, if that's your pleasure) our nimble fingers off on behalf of the Dulaan Project. There will also be prizes, incessant chatter, and noshing.What, No Sex?
Do I Need to Sign Up?
Yes, please. One of the requirements is that we must have some idea of who's coming, so e-mail invitations will go out via eVite. To be added to the invitation list, do this:What Should I Bring?
If you know someone who wishes to come but does not use e-mail, you may sign them up as your "and guest" when your invitation arrives. Also, asking for an invite doesn't mean you're saying you'll definitely attend. It just gives you the option.
- Send an email to dolores at franklinhabit daht cahm.
- Use the subject line "Dulaan".
- Make sure the body of the message includes your name and email address as you'd like them to appear on your invitation.
- Watch your e-mail for an invitation. Sometimes evite messages can get flagged as spam, so be vigilant.
[Late addition: I realized it's possible to set up the invitation so that those attending can invite other people to attend. Feel free to do so–no need to go only through me. Just don't spam people in my name, okay?]
The list of e-mail addresses will only be used for this event, then securely discarded. I'm not building a mailing list or getting anything out of this event aside from the pleasure of your company. The point is to encourage participation in the Dulaan.
Nota bene: Pretty please with Rowan Kidsilk Haze on top do not ask to be put on the list via any other e-mail address or the comments.
First and foremost: your Dulaan knitting, whatever it may be.Are You Sure There Won't Be Sex?
Also: this is going to be a potluck. (Ooh. Suddenly I feel all lesbian.)
I've got the venue secured in my name, and will be putting some of my own time and resources into the provision of food and drink. However, I can't do it all alone, so I'll be in need of a few lieutenants to help with set up and clean up.
You'll be able to sign up to bring something or help in a specific way via the invitation page.
If you're in a position to offer a prize or some sort of catering/provisioning, please so note in your e-mail and I or Dolores will be in touch. We can't offer much, beyond credit on the site and at the event, but we'd be grateful.
Knock it off, Dolores.
