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!
Despite the COVID dampening of things to end 2020, Guild members didn’t let that dampen their spirits by turning out in great numbers for our December Zoom meeting! Members showed up in their best “everyday exuberance” holiday outfits, with spirits to match, to learn about sewing gadgets some Guild members can’t live without, see what others had made in Sew & Tell, and share good cheers in a little sewcialization time. Here’s a sampling of what took place (thanks to Secretary Carolyn and member Reina for the notes and slide show photos).
This fall, two mini-challenges were issued by members of the Guild:
- Pat M suggested sewing something up that makes this season more snug & comfy & welcoming, whether a gift or for some lovely self care; and
- Karen L suggested sewing something with the oldest piece of fabric in your stash, or at least a fairly old one.
