Sew, Craft and Socialize
From Ileea (http://www.meetup.com/Seamsters-of-Sun-Valley-Reno/members/445077) - the Organizer & Event Host Do you have a blanket you have been working on but its been sitting in the closet for months? A scarf or other knit or crochet project? Do you have a costume or outfit for a special occasion but no real motivation? Do you have a pattern you have been looking at longingly but a little intimidated? That's what this get together is for. Bring your machine and your fabric (or mine) Or your yarn and lets work on it! I have a fabric stash I can bring if requested. Its mostly fleecy fabrics and quilting blocks. There is a lot to choose from. If you want me to bring my fabric stash please let me know at least 48 hours in advance so I can plan accordingly. I hope to see you there!"

What we're about

Public Group

We believe in the Wearable ART as the one of the BIG ways to Create Better Future for all of us, our families & so many people around. It’s the way to put Smiles on the faces, to bring Light of Creative Happiness to even sad people & places, to warm up this World & people in it with the Warmth & Loving Touch of our fingers & hearts… It’s the way to change people’s Lives into their Dream-Life. And it works even for ourselves & our families! We also believe that Wearable ART is the Fashion of the Future… A group of busy fingers that love to sew, crochet, knit and otherwise stitch yarn into handmade goodies. This group is for all and any level, we'll learn from each other! Swap patterns, ideas, yarn, fabric and conversation. Just a group of Creative Friendly People who are HAPPY & getting together for a few hours and do all things related to sewing, crocheting, knitting, scrapbooking & many other ways of Creative Crafting. If you are a beginner and looking to learn; if you are somewhat experienced but looking for a more social environment to work in; if you are an experienced Crafter and love to share your passion and knowledge.. This is the group for you. It doesn’t matter which the area of fabric & other crafts you are interested in. Home decor, quilting, fashion, costume... We are here to help & inspire each other.

And some words about me, Valentina - as a Group Organizer: my part time ‘doings’ & true passion – work with the Children, especially Orphans. I am creating Seminars on Wearable Art for Kids in Russian Orphanages. If you woud imaging some country, which is NOT that much yet into FUN & COLORFUL PLAYFULNESS of the Wearable Arts – it’s Russia. Of course, there are lots of Creative People! But things like the JOYFUL Chico’s clothing & ART of some other companies are NOT known there. I so want to bring this JOY in! I always hope to learn more about all related to this topic. I hope we would come up with some Great Ideas! I also love to meet new people & see what their gifts are & grow – learning from them & together in the Group...
