Calling ALL Local Sewers

Ok ok, I KNOW that my readers consist of maybe 8 people and of those 8, maybe 2 of them likes to sew, but I thought I would give this a shot nonetheless.

My little sewing group is in search of members to join and share their talents/ideas/projects with us. We meet once a month on the 3rd Wednesday mostly within the Seattle-Bellevue region. We're pretty spread out between Everett and Des Moines, so we gravitate towards the middle. We meet, chat, and show off the projects that we worked on. We each take turns in hosting and choosing what the project-of-the-month is. And for the most part, they have been pretty small, which is to say manageable for a person with a full-time job to finish. We've made things like fabric bowls, bags, scarves, pillows, and such. This month we are doing a free-form wall hanging project, which I am very excited to do. All that to say, we are not professionals, so don't be shy.  Its a fun way to learn new techniques and pointers from others.

If there is anybody out there, man or woman, young or old, big or small, who has a passion for all things sewing (or knows someone who does), and would like to join us, please let me know. We would love to have you!
