Nikkis Gio Stockings Factory tour and get together, March 24 2012, - the report.
Having just got back to Spain from England, we wanted to say a big personal THANK-YOU for all 50 who attended the Gio Stockings Factory tour and all 62 who attended the evening get together meeting in Nottingham on March 24th.
A major and special thanks to Sam from Gio for arranging to have the factory fully open and running, together with seamstresses on the day, AS WELL AS providing us with discounted merchandise from the warehouse for tour members AND excellent prizes for the best dressed competition in the evening.
Thanks also to Roger from Denier Court for helping co-ordinate with the DC members attending, as well as special thanks once again to David Morris for the gift of so may pairs of vintage stockings to the ladies on the night. I hope also that my gift of modern stockings to all attendees was also well received.
Good to see "regular" faces again, as well as so many "new" people.
We had attendees from all over the U.K. as well as Germany and Denmark. The fantastic venue The Opuium House restaurant in the evening, with the special set meal and reserved for us upstairs bar also did us proud and was a hit with new and old attendees alike.
Thanks to everyone for attending, I hope you all had a great time? I will be sending a personal thank-you note as usual via the e-mails given on the night.
The requested Lingerie Raffle with prizes supplied by me resulted in the winning of 5 corsets, and 2 stretch OBG bodies with stockings bundles. – Congratulations to the lucky winners! - Hope they all fit well!
Please DO visit the sponsor's websites and support them in return, - they deserve your custom!
I enjoyed our evening and look forward to seeing everyone again at my annual London meeting on 24th November at the Old Nick pub, if not before.
In the meantime, we have erected this temporary site with lots of stockings information, history, keywords and the full manufacturing process with some photos in. A finalized version will be going up on Nikkis own site shortly also.
