We're a group of people of all skill levels who love to sew, or want to learn to sew. We're interested in all the needle arts (except tattooing - and there may be a few of us interested in even that). This group was started by a member of the Greater Seattle Chapter of the American Sewing Guild (ASG). This local chapter of the ASG has eight neighborhood groups plus special interest groups (couture, working women's couture, pattern drafting software, surface design) that meet on a regular basis - evenings, daytimes or weekends - to share skills, ideas, frustrations, solutions, new information, encouragement etc. about projects. They also have two weekend sewing retreats - nothing but sewing, sleeping, eating, sewing - field trips, semi-annual education events, and charity projects.
