January Recap & Upcoming Events


January's meeting was full of excitement.  We had 8 new guests and a total of 25 people! 

Elyse gave a wonderful presentation about how fabrics go from a design concept, to strikeoffs, to production and then finally to market.  It was very interesting to learn about her job, the fabric industry, the various substrates and the trade shows.  Thank you Elyse!

We had 7 people participate in the January BOM and 12 people participate in the mini pouch swap.

We had lots to show during Sew & Tell.  Below is a snippet, but more photos can be found over on our Flickr group HERE.
