BurdaStyle Sewing Club - Saturday June 6



Stitches
711 E Pike St
Saturday, June 6, 2009
2 pm


There has been quite a response regarding the Seattle BurdaStyle meetup so this should be fun! Stitches, and a weekend day, were the preferred location and day for most people that emailed me. They have classes on Sundays but Saturdays are wide open for us. I scheduled this first meeting at 2pm, but we can change the time of future meetings, the earliest option would be 11:30 am and the latest probably 4pm so we can be out of there in time for dinners plans, etc.

Here's what I suggest we cover during our first get-together:
Introductions
Something to share/ask
Show us a recent finished project
Bring those pattern directions that have you stumped - together we can figure it out
Show us a picture/swatch of your upcoming/current project, solicit opinions if needed
Tell us about your favorite website for fabric, patterns, videos with sewing techniques
Show off those great vintage patterns you scored at the thrift store
Plan future meeting topics
Identify a few things we'd like to learn about - how to install zippers, make welt pockets, etc
Identify people who would be willing to demonstrate these at upcoming meetings
Scheduling
Preferred dates/times for future meetings
Upcoming topics/themes
Schedule next meeting
Photo session
For anyone who needs this

I hope most of you can make it! See you then!

I'm over on Lopez Island, but I think I'm going to join you! How often are you thinking the group will meet? Paula

Hi Paula, I'm thinking we'll start out with monthly meetings...

Totally, utterly, completely upset that teleporting has not been invented yet! Wish I could be there - but I will be tuning in to see your updates.

I'd like to come! I'm nowhere near the seamstress you seem to be, but I'm dying to know more sewers in the area!
