Spring is around the corner so dig into your stash and bring patterns to swap, especially any vintage ones. Everyone will be given a ticket for each pattern you bring. Then you exchange a ticket for a pattern. Any leftover patterns will be donated to the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse (http://www.creativereuse.org/).
Then we'll discuss spring wardrobes and fabric possibilities and have a drawing for Christine Haynes Emery Dress (http://www.christinehaynes.com/products/emery-dress-sewing-pattern) pattern. Christine generously donated her pattern for this vintage inspired dress for a giveaway (Thanks, Christine!). I finished my Emery Dress last month and blogged about it here (http://csews.com/sewalong-2/emery-dress-embroidered-collar-piping).

Patterns set out: 10:45-11 am
