We Have Our Own Domain – AtlanticSewingGuild.ORG

After almost 300 posts over the past two years, over 33,000 views and 140 followers, we have decided our site deserved its own domain! 🙂

If you look up in your address bar, you will see that the domain is no longer a WordPress domain, through which this site is based. Anybody continuing to use the old address, or any old links to our past posts, will have no problem accessing the same content. It will automatically redirect as if someone substituted the old domain with the new one for you.

Thank you to all those that have viewed, followed, commented and contributed in other ways in the past. We look forward to continuing to do so with you and others who will find us in the future!

We have an exciting year coming up in the Guild, including online content for those of you not able to join us in Halifax. We will do this our site here, and expanding social media presence that will allow for even more interaction. We will share that news within weeks when we are ready! I hope you’ll join us for the ride!

It’s Fashion Week!

How come nobody in the Guild raised this??? Why am I in New York next week instead of this week???

Well, no need to dwell on it now. Time is a-wastin’! There are a gazillion articles on CNN and other sites. I especially enjoyed The Fashionista’s Dilemma: Cheap Clothes. There’ll be a post coming to talk about it more!

I provided the link to the CNN articles. You can Google “Fashion Week” to see what else shows up. Enjoy!
