American Sewing Guild-local chapter
Posted by Sarah Nolt at 6:39 AM
Yesterday was the August monthly meeting of the local chapter of the American Sewing Guild in the back room of the Sew Worth It! fabric store. Just getting to the back room means navigating through that wonderland candy store of luscious fabrics! The demonstration was making a gift bag/tote bag for the purposes of Christmas gift giving. I love seeing other people's creativity taking form! For show and tell one woman brought an origami handbag she made. It was beautiful! And we were so intrigued and just had to figure out how it was done, on the spot. She could not remember all the details. A few of the women went right ahead and made a prototype with their surplus fabrics to help them remember by the time they got home. And my mind started spinning along the lines of Cathedral Windows bags! Well, that was predictable! So, I came home with inspiration, and completed projects I had taken to work on. Till later....
