Okay, guys, we’re doing this.

If you’re in for any amount to send a huge bouquet of congratulatory flowers to Mark, Steve, Sue, and all the rest of the team for the Emmys and just to show them tumblr loves them and isn’t cross, please reblog this and also message me. I’ll send you my PayPal information. Even if you just want to send a dollar or a pound or a euro, that’s cool. 

I’ll stop collecting money on Friday and send whatever we can afford at that point to the Hartswood Films office in Richmond. I will post what we send so that everyone has proof their money actually went to that. 

I just want Steve to know that we’re not all cross, and that we actually think he’s WONDERFUL.

Please tag this #Flowers for Moffat when you reblog. Thanks!!!!!! 

I’m tagging onthelosingside because it was her post that started this idea!

Lovely idea to say thank you

Post FanExpo Meeting

221btoronto:

Hey all! So Crissy and Kristi are unavailable to run things, but me and Melissa (nothingtosay) will be running a FanExpo meet-up!

We’re going to do it at the Jack Astor’s at John and Richmond in downtown Toronto (133 John Street), where we have been a few times before. 6pm on Sunday August 31st, which gives us the perfect amount of time to get from the MTCC to there once the con ends. And I warned them that there will be people in costume.

Please RSVP to 221btoronto@gmail.com.

Hope to see people there!

Hi! I was just wondering if you were considering doing some Sherlock-inspired live music? My band does Sherlock fanfic-style songs and we'd love to do something like play your convention!

That sounds like an awesome idea! We can’t really give a definitive answer quite yet but if you’d like to drop us a message at the con email, we can get back to you when we have a better idea on what kind of space we’ll be renting out for the convention.

THE TIME TO VOTE HAS ARRIVED!

Some of you may have seen this post on your dashboard recently, but for those who haven’t, allow me to introduce The Sherlock International Project.
This project is aimed to bring the fandom closer, and help us all enjoy the wait until season 4. This will involve games, competitions and the main event…. a sherlock fan meet-up in every country on the same date! (August 1st 2015)
As I said on the introduction post, I will not be selecting the meet-up locations myself, that will all be up to you! You get to vote, and the cities with the most votes will be the location for that country. Very large countries (USA, Russia, Australia, China, Canada…) will automatically have more locations than other countries, due to higher difficulty to travel. After the highest voted cities have been selected, if any other cities have 50 votes or more, that city will automatically get a meet-up too. 
If any country gets 10 votes or less, I will not be organizing any events myself, but feel free to add yourselves to the fandom map, and contact each other
So, how can you vote?
All you have to do is send a really quick e-mail to sherlockinternationalproject@gmail.com with the name of your country and the city you vote for as the subject!
Like this:

And that’s it! No need to write anything, because all I will do is read the country and city and categorize them to count.
Votes will be counted in November/December
If you could please reblog this post to spread word about the project, that would be amazing, thank you!
Follow the blog for news, updates, games and competitions
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask 
Stay tuned for some exciting news this weekend!

Hello! Just wondering if there will be something like an artist alley at the con. I'd like to sell some Sherlock fan art as well as get commissioned.

Anonymous

Definitely! Our main goal at this con is not only to celebrate Sherlock Holmes but the fans themselves who work so hard to create and share with the rest of the fandom. We also will have smaller artist’s alleys at the mini cons.

Calling all Staff!

In other news, we are still actively searching for more staff! Our Victoria Day plans (and subsequent need to cancel many of them) has only reminded us of how much we need more active voices on the team to help with planning, decisions and brainstorming. We want to run several more events over the course of the summer and for that to happen we need team players who want to get involved in making things happen!

Hello Ottawa!

To get you excited for Baker Street North, I’m planning three back to back events this coming Sunday to celebrate Victoria Day! A little bit of everything and an adventure in roaming, if you will.

To start of with, we’re going to have a picnic! Let’s meet up in Confederation Park- I’ll have scones, biscuits, sandwiches and iced and hot teas to sell (for a very low cost) or you can bring your own picnic foods. I’ll be there starting from 11 am to 1 pm.

Next, we’ll head to the Tea Party on York St to hang out and play Clue! They have there own selection of Sherlock Holmes teas. This meet will be from 2 pm to 4 pm.

Finally, let’s get back together at 8 pm at the Royal Oak on the Canal for a pub quiz! I will have some prizes to give out, including a cake!

Just a reminder as well; any one who attends any of these events will be entered into the Baker Street North giveaway!

If you think you can make it, please RSVP to my askbox (@winifredweatherbee) with which events you’d like to attend- this way I can make reservations and bring enough snacks and prizes. If you’d like to help me out with anything, I’d value your input greatly! Also, if you are attending the picnic and would like to know what foods I am bringing I can send along a menu as well. 

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone!

Just a reminder that you can also plan your own event to get entered to win! Please tag with #bakerstreetnorth and we’ll reblog it for you!
