An update on ticket sales
So. Sewing Summit 2012 is officially sold out. Yes, our tickets went on sale at 9:00 am this morning, by 9:01 there were 100 tickets sold. Throughout the rest of the day, I watched the registration stats like a hawk and incredulously, about 10 hours later, I realized that we were going to sell out & I needed to take the registration link off our website.
People. I am stunned. I am not an easily stunnable person, I am a pretty big skeptic. I would have bet you cash money yesterday that we would never sell out in 10 hours. But now, having this all start to sink in, I’m really not that surprised. I think it speaks volumes about what this sewing community wants, what we need. If you read my blog post yesterday, you know that I believe in getting people together, getting people out & meeting each other. I think it’s imperative. This confirms that to 1000 degrees!

I am going to speak with our venue & see what we can do about releasing more tickets. I am starting a “wait list” to gauge interest in how many of you out there would buy a ticket if there were more available. If that’s you – send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will not be an email address we monitor or reply to – so no need to say anything more than “I’d buy a ticket”. Keep in mind – this is not a guarantee that we will be releasing more tickets, it’s just to give us an idea of what we have to work with.
Also, I have to keep in mind the lucky people that did register today. When Sewing Summit was formed, we always had in mind a smaller, niche, approximately 250 person event where people could genuinely connect & you weren’t just cattle-called through big ballrooms & halls. I want to provide a place where you can do that – and it’s a delicate balance. I have a lot of thinking to do, I need a big diet Coke, and I <3 you all so much!
Can’t WAIT for October!
