All kits in class are the same, there is no choice for the students. A relaxed day of laughter and sewing.

October 17, 2015 Mark Lipinski at the Saturday General Meeting: "The Slow Stitching Movement" Quick, fast, easy. In our busy, multitasking world, those buzzwords capture our attention. But speed can kill creativity and the enjoyment of our creative pursuits. Maybe what we really need to do is slow down, enjoy the process, and create fiber art that we're really proud of. But how? If you've hit a creative wall, if you have more yarn, fabric, floss, threads, and notions than you do inspiration, if all of your projects are beginning to look alike, or if you've been creating in the needle arts for years and have nothing especially wonderful to show for it . . . The Slow Stitching Movement is for you.
9:30 am - 12:30pm.
