    I’m a BSC leader and I am having trouble contacting members who have expressed interest in the club in my area. First of all, the private message are no longer available on the new website. I dont have members emails. I got the user names from the old website and I have posted messages on the prospective members wall. People dont check their walls often so I have not heard back from anyone. Can someone help me find a way to reach my BSC? Please.

    Is anyone keeping track of the leaders that seem to have bailed? I’m in southern Cali, and would like to join a BSC, but the leaders in the LA county area don’t seem to be doing anything. A simple post on their profile would be very assuring, even if the clubs are still a work-in-progress.

      Hi EAlis,

      I will contact the leaders of that area to check their status. If they are unresponsive, I will remove them from our list of leaders.

      If interested, you are more than welcome to become a leader! Pleae send me an e-mail at team[at]burdastyle[dot]com.

    BTW Dublin is not in the U.K…you might want to change that as I know my Irish friends wouldn’t be happy being listed as being from the U.K!!

    So guessing by the list there are no clubs in Newcastle Upon Tyne?

    I live in Miami and I submitted my name to be a leader, but did not get it. I honestly do not care or am upset i did not get chosen, however, i have tried to contact the Member who is the Miami sewing club leader and I never got a response. Also, he profile says she lives in Port St. Lucie? I would like to get in touch with ppl in Miami who are active in a sewing club

    I’m another one that’s really bad at filling in profiles. While I’m new on this name, I have been a member for a while, I just changed it to reflect my blog where I am a little more personable then I am on here.

    I did fill it out, and I appreciate the comments that made the light bulb go on that it needed to be done.

    As to the meetings, I have contacted several places that we can meet in various locations in the area (Lawrenceburg, Muscle Shoals, Florence, St. Joe and Loretto) so everyone can have a meeting that will fit in with their distance depending on where the members are coming from, and times for everyone once we get some members so I can finalize it for everyone!

    I contacted the Sydney, Australia person twice in the last 2 weeks and haven’t heard anything back from her… When I checked the list now she wasn’t even on it any longer. Very disappointing!!! It is hard to believe that there are no people who would want to lead/ join a sewing club in Sydney… Steffi

      Hi Steffi,

      I know it’s been some time since you posted this message but I was wondering if you’d been able to find a group in Sydney? If not, I am thinking of starting one, although I am only a novice.

      I’d love to hear from you if you have any news…

    Thanks for your positive comments! I’m not a very good pattern drafter but I can sew well and am looking for others from whom I can glean information and experience :) I’ve got room in my home and would love other central Kansas-ites to show me a thing or two …. or three.

    Any chance the Dallas group is going to get here? It’s been coming soon for a while. Where it would be is another question as Dallas is a big place with a lot of suburbs. You can easily spend 45 minutes to more than an hour driving around here to get someplace ‘local’.

    What is involved in a sewing group? What exactly goes on? Id love to be a part of the NYC ones but itd be nice to know what to expect if I show up to a group. btw, even though i dont know much about it, its still a great idea.

    Well, the leader of the Paris sewing group has not answered my message and there is nothing on their wall so I doubt this group is going to happen.

    Hello, I just wanted to check if you are sure that Nichola P. (aka nikkishell) is really doing the sewing club in Sydney – her location profile says she is in Melbourne… Cheers, Steffi

    Hello! I had offered to lead one in Wellington (Hutt Valley), NZ, but don’t see it on the list. Was it just no-one else was interested in my area? It’s about an 8 hour drive to either of the other two in NZ!

    hello all… super stoked to hear about this. it’d be rad if someone wanted to start a club up in campbell river b.c …… I’d start one but I’m kinda flakey (he he) but would love to join up in one. I’m just not that responsible :D was this the right spot to pose this question? I’m a newb to all this message board stuff. and for the record… i rarely post anything. have no creations or anything else in my profile. ;) but i love your site and have learnt soooo much on here. I’m just not computer literate. or really sewing literate either haha

    Hello klf! Here is your answer, “There are two different groups, each one has a leader. They might talk to each other and decide to make it one, but maybe they are in different areas and it is more convenient for some to attend one over the other.”
