Bellingham, Washington Meetup -- Saturday, March 25, 2023

Hey Kriselle,

It is looking unlikely that I will be able to make the meetup. How can I send you my payment (I don’t think I have done that yet, but not sure) and also receive the postcards by mail?

Thanks so much!

Sorry you won’t be attending the meetup. I will send you a message after I figure out the postage.

I am traveling from Olympia to Bellingham. If anyone would like to carpool, please message me.

Hi Kriselle,

Is it too late to order Meetup postcards? If not, I would like to get 20, please. Thank you!

Sorry for the late notice, but I would like to attend! And could I purchase 5 meetup cards as well?

So excited! I will be there! I would be interested to purchase 5 postcards if any available! Thank you!

There are still postcards left. Here are three more orders:
kpwick 5 postcards
christarobs 5 postcards
5kjenni 20 postcards

See you Saturday.

Just a few more days until the Bellingham Meetup.
Don’t forget to bring postcards to trade and an envelope or small bag with ten different postcards inside for an exchange.

I’ll likely purchase more than the 12 cards I’ve requested if available — looking forward to meeting you all Saturday!

Still fighting a horrendous cough so i won’t be able to make it. Looking forward to the next one & hope everyone will have a great time :relaxed:

I am so sorry that I am unable to attend. My father in law passed away and we are spending a day with my mother in law. I am happy to meet another time and pay for the cards I ordered.

@Kristin1129 & Organizers,

Thank you for a fun whirlwind event! The venue is perfect and the people super friendly :slightly_smiling_face:

I’d love to see this be a quarterly or semi-annual gathering - worth the trip :100:

A couple of requests/questions:

• could those who took the group pic please post/privately send to those of us who attended?

• the generous offer of a meetup on Whidby in July would be fab — please reply to this thread/link the date/time of when that will happen

  • Greg and I spoke about a couple of larger meetups in case you are interested/considering attending (as we each are), including:
    • the Cleveland event in August 2023: 11 August 2023 - Meetup at Cleveland Great American Stamp Show
    • the {Annual?} Finland Meetup: I can’t find a link in the forum, could you please?

  • I offered to host a meet up in Woodinville, WA and was already considering an April 2023 date - I’ll be working out details today and can drop a link in this thread in case anyone is interested - and if you plan on staying the night or are local, I can make arrangements for a wine walk post-event :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you so much again for hosting this fun event - it was great to meet you all!

{and thx to those of you who brought your handmade/image cards - they are awesome! I had just been looking into this thread prior to our meetup yesterday in case you’d like to post your creations or just check out others :wink: Welcome to the 1st Annual Spring Handmade Postcard Exhibition – Spring 2023!}

Hi Kelly! A Woodinville meetup in April would be terrific. I’m in Redmond, so very local/easy for me. I’m going to Idaho for a week in late April, though, so look forward to learning a date soon so I can make sure I’ll be here! A wine walk sounds intriguing - would love to learn more. :smiley:

Finland…ooh… I haven’t traveled internationally in years but it would be so fun to go to a meetup in another country. Enticing!

P.S. I’d also love to do the Bham meetup as a quarterly event! I go up there often and would definitely fold this into my regular trips. I’m in! :smiley:

Hello Woodinville-Meetup-interested Postcrossers!

First, did anyone else pick up a virus/illness from last weekend? I’m on day 4 of no voice & coughing :confused: Touché masks!

Second, I’m meeting roadblocks at every turn trying to secure a location in Woodinville, so my go-to is Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park! There is a huge community space with eateries just outside the bookstore. I’ve had many bookclub/meetings there through the years. Plenty of parking, et al.

I really wanted to meet for Earth Day, so Saturday, April 22, 2023 it is - from 1-3pm in the lobby. I’ll be there early to get a few tables and will post this separately in the main forum once I complete the Postcard design this afternoon.

Thank you again for your interest and Happy Postcrossing!

So sorry that you are not feeling well. I hope that you feel better soon.
I have been feeling fine since the meetup.

Ooh, so sorry you’ve been under the weather - ugh. Hope you’re better soon! The 22nd sounds great, and LFP/Third Place Books too! I used to spend a lot of time there, when I lived in Bothell, worked in Seattle, and my (now 32YO) son’s caregiver lived in LFP (think she still does). Love Great Harvest Bakery, and Third Place Books too! I will definitely be there!

Hello,

I got a postcard from your Meetup on March 25 in Bellingham, Washington. Unfortunately there was no Postcard- ID on it. So I can’t register it. If anyone sent a postcard to Tati78, Berlin, Germany, please contact me and give me the ID for registration. I want to thank the right person. :slightly_smiling_face:

Bye,
Kathrin
