Well, our sewing club in Jacksonville, NC has been meeting for about 6 months now. I thought I would share some ideas from what we have been doing at our meetings in case anyone needs some inspiration for their club. Some of the meetings have just been us gals sipping tea and discussing topics such as our favorite sewing techniques, fabrics, etc. We also share tips and show-and-tell some projects we’ve made. We have also done a “sew-in” where we met at one member’s home and “forced” ourselves to work on our unfinished projects. We all have those projects we quit working on at some point which get left to lay around gathering dust so we took this time to get those finished once and for all. She had set up a long table in the living room where we plugged our machines into a long surge protector and we layed out our cutting boards on the floor. We had delicious treats and tea, of course! I had a great time! Our last meeting was alot of fun too. We met at my house for tea, where had a drawing for a door prize, then we carpooled on a field trip to the local fabric store! We shopped for fabric which we would use for our next project. At our next meeting we will be sharing our progress on the “field-trip” projects.
The meetings have allowed us to have fun with other ladies who share a passion and helps us keep each other motivated to sew!
I have more ideas for future meetings which I would be happy to share if anyone is interested ;o)
