July 2013 Meeting!

From our President:

Welcome to Summer!  And to think July is almost half over already.

Remember our new schedule for Sewing Guild. The next meeting:  July 22nd at 6:30 at Sew Creative 5143 South St. 48th St. 

       Program will be presented by Jackie Giest owner of The Black Market.  This is a store in the Gold’s Galleria downtown.  This a very interesting store and you will enjoy her story.

       Don’t forget to bring and share your summer projects for Show and Tell.

Last month we got a lot of mittens cut out.  A big thanks to those of you who were able to come and help.  We still have a lot of fleece left.  So, when you run out of mittens to make, let me know and I can supply more.  : )

Changes In Our Meeting Schedule

We've changed our meeting time and schedule!  We begin at 6:30pm, still on the 4th Monday (except Memorial Day week.)  We are going to avoid all the rotten weather in the winter (we hope!) by meeting during the summer months and not in the winter months.  We decided that since about as many of our members travel in the winter as the summer, the school calendar should not rule our group.  We have had to cancel meetings because of bad weather more than once, so we are going to try this for a while and see how we like it.  Come join us this summer if you can, and in the fall and spring as well, of course. 

I'm sure you've all been to the NEW, larger and much nicer premises of Sew Creative by now.  If not, they are in the building directly north of their previous location in Sutter Place Mall.  Their new classroom is where our meetings are held.  Join us!!

Our next meeting will be June 24th at 6:30pm.  We will be cutting our mittens for our regular charity sewing project, Mittens for HeadStart/Excite! preschool classes.  We will be taking mitten kits home to sew over the summer so we can get them to the classrooms next fall.  This is a fun project, and you can be very creative with it.

September 27, 2010

The first meeting of our new year is this Monday, Sept. 27th, at 7pm at the Sew Creative Classroom at Sutter Place Mall. Please see the map on the right-hand sidebar of this blog for complete directions.

As we have for the last several years, the first meeting will include some time for members and guests to enjoy some desserts, and catch up on our activities over the summer. We will also have a short program.

Once again, we have NOT raised our dues. They remain an unbelievable bargain at only $15/year. Our Treasurer will be accepting dues at this meeting, or you may mail them. It's important that we know what our budget is as soon as possible, so the committee can plan activities for the year.

May 24, 2010

Our last regular meeting of the year is this Monday at 7pm at Sew Creative's classroom, as usual. Our program should be very interesting. It will be

Inside Your Purse

Elizabeth Meyer will show us how to customize and organize our existing purses with an insert which holds your essentials, and moves easily from purse to purse.

A bonus project will be making a makeup bag/coin purse with a steel tape measure. I think this sounds like great fun, and something we can all use. Who doesn't need a more organized bag?

See you Monday!
