We continued with planning our calendar, discussing various topics and ideas. One change is that we decided to meet in August and skip December. since the holiday time always seems to be too busy.
Here's a rough schedule, subject to change, as always.
April: Organization tips from your sewing room - bring photos or descriptions of whatever you do to make sewing easier for you. Let's share ideas and help each other to make more or store more or find stuff more easily.
May: Peggy will lead us through the process to make Dorset buttons.
June: possibly a sewing room tour or guest speaker
July: service sewing - perhaps preemie clothing
August: upcycling - idea still to be developed
September: Brown Bag challenge results
October: prepare for Make a Difference Day project
November: cork fabric investigation
December: no meeting
Two other topics for back-up are stuffed animals / soft toys and cathedral window quilting.
We had some Show-and-Tell including some OLD items, some unfinished. Perhaps now that we've dug those UFO's out, we'll be inspired to complete them!
