On Thursday, January 14, 2021, the Atlantic Sewing Guild was thrilled to have Lindsay Duncan of Meet the Maker Photos join us at our monthly meeting as a guest speaker! In a very informative presentation via Zoom (due to COVID restrictions), she gave us tips on lighting, staging, editing, and the kinds of photos you need. She also gave us questions to think about to determine what we need for our specific situations, and answered many questions by members in attendance.

Project Gutenberg, as it’s properly known rather than the colloquial Gutenberg Project, is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to preserve them for history and make them more accessible to the people. Here at the Atlantic Sewing Guild, we have some cultural works that need digitizing and archiving, to preserve them for history and make them more accessible to everyone. As a result, some original and long time members and I have volunteered to create the Guildenberg Project to bring the world the treasure trove of articles from the Guild’s storied past, all with the original authors’ permission, of course.
