At our first monthly meeting in 2021, we got to hear a lot about photography of garments from our guest speaker, Lindsay Duncan of Meet the Maker Photos. It was so informative we dedicated an entire post to it, allowing our monthly meeting summary post to highlight our members’ creations in Sew & Tell, and our Warm & Cozy Sewing Challenge. Both are in the galleries below, compiled by our member Reina, which you can click on the thumbnails to see in full screen. We also got new sewing challenge if you read on below!
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.
This year 2021 will mark the 25th anniversary of the Atlantic Sewing Guild. To honour this milestone I would like to share some early history of the Guild and how it started so many years ago.
