This is my Noodlehead Poolside Tote
The Westover Library space is limited. We had incredible attendance at our January planning meeting and look forward to seeing how many people can attend our bag sewing meeting. We have three suggestions to help with the space limitations.
- Sew with a buddy--bag sewing requires more pressing breaks and pinning breaks than chain piecing. Some of us tend to socialize more than sew at these meetings anyway. So why not pick a friend to take turns sewing with?
- Come prepared--table space will be dedicated to sewing machines, so picking out a pattern, cutting your fabric and pressing interfacing before Saturday would be best.
- Bring some handwork--if you have a knitting project, some hexies to sew or a binding to stitch down, bring it along in case there isn't sewing space immediately open. Most members can't stay for the entire meeting so space will open up.
There are a few other new things that will start this Saturday.
- Suggestion/volunteer box--we didn't get to discuss charity sewing ideas during the January meeting, so suggestions regarding charity projects would be appreciated. Concrete suggestions for affordable meeting venues for 35-40 people will also be greatly appreciated.
- Free fabric box--If you have fabric that you won't use, please consider bringing it to a meeting for other members. I'll be cleaning out my stash and putting a lot of fabric in the box for this Saturday. I will also test out bringing the box to every meeting for all members to add to and choose from as the year goes on.
