May 10, 2013: UFO Rescue Mission
We had so much fun with “UFO Attack: Sew Chicago Strikes Back” a few years ago, we’re going to go at it again. Dig into that basket of dashed hopes and broken dreams and either finish something or bring it in as is for advice on what to do to rescue it. If nothing else, the stories that go with these UFOs are good for LOL!
June 14, 2013: Wardrobe Inspiration
What silhouettes, design details or fabrications have caught your eye recently? How do you think you might incorporate one or more of these elements into a future project? Do you sometimes think you have too many ideas and no way to bring them to fruition? We can work on that. Bring your inspiration pictures to our June meeting and we’ll explore ways to capture that inspiration and make it work for us.
July 12, 2013: Pattern Magic
Liz H. has been playing with a design in the book Pattern Magic and incorporated it into a fitting shell that fits her perfectly. She’s ready to share so we can work magic of our own.
August 9, 2013: Fancy Feet and Decorative Stitches
Carolyn is working on a very special program about all those interesting presser feet – what they do, how to use them and how to use the decorative stitches in our machines. This is starting to sound like a two-part program, so stay tuned.
