The creativity of our members never ceases to amaze. The ideas, tips and stories that are shared add to the excitement of our meetings. This month, because we have not met in person for a while, we had an especially lengthy and fun show! Here are the highlights.
After a wonderful speaker, our talented members shared their projects in Show 'n Tell.
Fun and camaraderie filled the room at the 2021 GRASG Annual Picnic held at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Caledonia. A worker bee crew assembled kits, cut and sewed mittens for Santa Claus Girls. Socks were donated for the 'In the Image' shoe-giveaway for school age children. A dinner potluck brought in a few more ladies to share a fantastic potluck meal. Everyone agreed that the food was irresistibly delicious.
Show and tell and games followed the meal. A good time was had by all.
We loved seeing everyone's faces at our first in-person meeting since September 2020. We all got together for a social sew-in organized by Pam S. and Jo M. to make mittens to donate to Santa Claus Girls. Interested in participating? The patterns and more details can be found on our Patterns page.
We had a great meeting and turnout of 32 people to the Zoom meeting with Kim Scherer from Kim Scherer's Korner, who talked about sewing activewear. Kim's list of recommended resources can be found on the Projects & Resources page (password-protected).
A few screenshots from the fantastic presentation on Sewing with Wool given by Elizabeth Rasmusson from Fabric.com at this month's GRASG meeting. A link to the recorded presentation is available in the Members Only section (password required).
We had a great turnout of 26 people to our Zoom meeting! Joel Forrest of Circle JF Saddlery in Fruitport, Michigan, discussed basic leatherworking tools, supplies and techniques. His fantastic talk was followed by our usual show-and-tell with members.
