      Our ASG chapter has a number of people using dress forms and I bet there is someone who has the same kind you have. We have a meeting every 1st Thursday morning at 10:30 at Fabrique Fashion Fabrics (Coit and George Bush Tollway). If you have mornings free, come join us and I bet you might find someone who could help! We would love to have you!

    Great idea to bring options for 3rd class. If you finish your first kit early you can start on your 3rd class.

    I'm all packed up and it looks like I'll be moving in. LOL. I joined the ASG on Monday. I feel like a kid and it's Christmas eve. I can't decide on next project or fabric so I'm bringing my options (for 3rd class?)
