‘Short Snaps’ (Mar 2019 Meeting)

‘Short Snaps’ were the feature of the meeting — four of our members each shared an interesting, unique technique:

  • Brenda showed us how to make jewelry with strips of scrap fabric and beads
  • Tory shared her story of how she Marie Kondo’d here way to a somewhat capsule wardrobe and taught us how to ‘properly’ our garments
  • Heike developed a technique for stabilizing and fearlessly cutting into hand-knit fabric
  • Elte marked out a skirt and top onto fabric using a measuring tape and some simple math .. no pattern needed!
  • And after we absorbed all this information and enjoyed a little social time we were treated to ever popular ‘Sew and Tell’


This cozy jacket is Kwik Sew 4139 and made from a reversible fabric
  • How lovely is Lorna’s trench coat? It is the Taylor Trench pattern by Rebecca Page
Kathleen is kicking up her heals in this self-drafted skirt made from drapery
Reina used the Claudette dress pattern to make a skirt. Top is the Astoria pattern from Seamwork

Pat was busy sewing the Jalie Raglan 3245 for granddaughters but still found time to make herself a Josie top by StyleArc

Susan has made this her go to pattern for everyday dresses – New Look 6352
Janet used Simplicity 9320 to make herself this top.
Nancy’s Poolside Tote by Noodlehead will be carting things to more places than the pool and beach
Yours truly is wearing a Grainline Driftless Cardi over the Seamwork Brit dress.
