Volunteers Please!!

At the last team meeting we talked lots about doing fairs and getting more involved as a group. So this led me to contact the Spiritstore project in Limerick City, the are running an event on the weekend of the 8-9th May, with lots of artists and performers all exhibiting work in one street. Because of the set-up that they have we are not allowed to sell items but they've asked the Etsy Ireland group to do a how-to class on the Saturday from 3.30-6.30pm. They've supplied a great indoor space right in the centre of the city, but we would need to supply materials. We can also set up a display area of things we have made, so we can advertise the team that way.

So I'm looking for people who will be around that weekend who would like to volunteer to do some simple workshops. I was thinking we might fit in a team meeting in the early afternoon too, to get what we are going to teach sorted...and also to have some yummy cake and coffee!

I really need to hear back from people on this as soon as possible please.


  1. OMG I would love to do this especially since I'm based in Limerick but I have a wedding on that very Day!!! GRRRR - I am around on the 9th, if I can help with anything! :)

  2. I'd love to come, but alas, I don't have the funds for a trip to Limerick at the moment :( But I'll be with ya'll in spirit if not in Spiritstore...

  3. Oh no Rebecca, tell them to get married on a different day!

    I totally understand Purls, you do live in Belfast!

  4. Ruth - I know, how inconsiderate of them!! ha ha!

  5. Hey Ruth - what a great opportunity for the team. Unfortunately I can't do that weekend - what a pain!

  6. Hi Ruthie
    You will hate me but I am on tour that weekend! I will ring you later (home today!) and see if I can help with any preperation beforehand tho! And maybe donate the cake!!

  7. oh no what's with all you people having lives!!! Only kidding!
    Cake would be lovely Orla, I won't say no!

  8. Hi! I think that sounds great, I should be around that weekend although Im based in Dublin Id love to head down to Limerick for the day and get involved, and as I missed the last meetup Im looking forward to meeting everyone.
    Do you want everyone who wants to come to plan something out themselves or do you want to have everyone help do 2 or 3 how-to-classes?
