The May sewing meeting is coming up this Saturday, May 14th, at the Westover Library meeting room in Arlington, VA! We can sew from 10am to 4:30pm. Will you join us? Bring your machines and/or latest project to work on! The business portion of the meeting will start around 1:00pm, after people have grabbed some lunch, and show & tell will commence shortly thereafter.
A few notes worth mentioning:
1) If you're working on a charity project, Alyson wants people to know that she'll have bolts of fabric that can be used for backings. Bring your tops and you can cut backing pieces to size at this weekend's meeting!
2) We'll have a few different styles of t-shirts for people to look at and try on so that we can get an order of t-shirts together with our new guild logo printed on them!
3) As usual, bring your extension cords, irons, cutting mats, snacks, etc.; anything you need to be productive all day long!
It's hard to believe we're almost halfway through May already!
