    If there are two names listed for a city, does that mean there are two different groups in that city or one group with two leaders?

    @kendal and @mlssfshn – Some people are not online people, they don’t create profiles or upload content, but they are still great in getting people together and enabling social sewing, something we promote on- and now offline. We trust that people who are volunteering will do a good job. If you feel they are not being responsible leaders, tell them, tell us and we can solve this!

    Hi kquade,

    We don’t have group profiles. Just send a message to the group leader – they will get in touch with you then!

    Have fun! Nora

    I totally agree with mlssfshn! The leader of the Seattle sewing club has been a member for a little over a month and they have’nt even made any creations. How are they a good leader?

    Hi Caseysgal,

    Sorry about that! it’s all fixed now.

    @ Missfshn: we know that there are many different levels of involvement on our site and for this reason we are not going to turn anyone away who wants to take the initiative and lead a sewing group. As for the issue of compatibility, we absolutely encourage all group leaders to create an interesting profile, but this is not a requirement. If you are concerned about compatibility i suggest messaging the BSC leader, or going to the first meeting to try it out. And finally, we would love it if you lead a group in your area, if you would like I can add it to the list immediately.

    Best Alden

    Maybe this person just found the site. Maybe they are an active teacher.

    I dont write much on this site and read it occasionally because I am busy teaching others to sew and quilt. So I have samples to make and lessons to prepare. If I get on my computer I get involved in conversation that I dont get any work done. LOL I’m sorry you missed out. :-(

    Not to be critical but not one of the people from my area are active members of Burda Style. I applaud them for stepping up, but someone who just joined the site on the 23th of April being a group leader? I wish you would have put a little more fore thought into who you allowed to take these positions. I submitted but had some hesitation in what you expected, had you said you’d take anyone, I was up to the job, but I was told you had several people already from my area and no one else was needed. Not one of these people have a profile, any creations, posted on the forum, and one doesn’t even have a picture. How am I to know if our sewing type are compatible? If someone wants to be a leader they should at least have a profile.
