I will be working on a couple of postcard designs specifically for this meetup, most likely UIUC/Illinois/Spring-based. Let me know if you’re a local artist and want to make a meet-up card!!


Hey there. I am from Indiana and I am thinking about coming to this. I have not been to a meetup before, but this one seems like the closest to me. I’m hoping to be able to come :relaxed:


Hi! I’m also in Indiana and would love to come! I have it on my calendar. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Yay! :smiley:

I’m in CU and would love to participate as long as I’m free (the kiddos have archery tourneys on the weekends in spring usually)!

Hello! I am excited to see a meet-up close to me. I am from Indiana and my sister (also a Postcrosser) and I are going to come to your meet-up. It is on our calendar!!

I’m going to try to make it, my granddaughter is at the U of I it would make a nice trip.

UIUC alum here! Going to try to come to this. I always love an excuse to come back to Champaign :slight_smile:

Good morning y’all. I’m from Bloomington-Normal myself but I’d love to come to something like this. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’ve never been to one of these before, but I’ve always wanted to go to one. It’s a bit of a drive but I’d love to try attending.

There is not a reserved table for us (they don’t do reservations on weekends), but the owner said it would be perfectly fine for all of us to come and do Postcards at the cafe as long as we buy a drink or snack too.
Also, I am working on making a postcard design. I’ll likely give a few out and sell the others.


Does anyone know what is happening in C-U that weekend? Hotel rooms are booked!

It’s moms weekend. That moght be it :woman_shrugging:

I have it on the calendar. Looking forward to the event. There will be 2 of us.

I hope to attend. :slight_smile:

My lucky day! I am going with friend to Mom’s weekend. I know she will indulge me… So excited to meet up!
