ASG Members are guaranteed to shake any February blues at our next meeting
We have the fab, fun and fresh Margo Bergman making a presentation to us! Margo is quite the sewing celebrity in these parts with her popular sewing blog, Creating in the Gap. She will be bringing us tales of adventure in blogging and in creating her lovely (& colourful!) wardrobe, showing how the process fits into her life.
Margo is our kind of people! She loves clothes and is a self-declared fabric addict, a pattern hoarder who just can’t stop making things. The sewing projects she does are many and varied. Margo is a good example that it is indeed possible to produce beautiful clothes using, typically, local sources.
Right now Margo’s doing a crazy brave thing in her life & she serves as an object lesson for those who tend to hold back: it can be wonderful to take a step into the unknown. She has “secret skills to break out when a situation calls for it”, like so many of us who don’t necessarily acknowledge this in our daily grind . Maybe she’ll even explain how to back up a truck & trailer or more importantly what she’s created using a Christmas tablecloth!
The day before Valentine’s Day will be a marvelous time to join the Atlantic Sewing Guild to have a close up look at both the clothing and the Gal Creating in The Gap! (See Margo’s quote from Ira Glass here.)
