BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME
believe it or not,
YOU can start your OWN
Quilting, Sewing, Stitching Circle of Friends
I am a member of
Heritage Quilters of Huntsville
But, I needed more...
a SMALL group of Stitching Minded Ladies
to meet with on a regular basis.
NO, Not These Ladies
You Know, More Like This
Women all over the world need Stitching Friends..!
Quilting Bees were the Social Center
of a Community.
But Community is Different Nowadays
People move, retire, relocate, and often we don't know our own neighbors much less meet together for coffee or sewing.
WHAT TO DO?
FORM YOUR OWN!
I had been
Whining Discussing with #1 Husband
about wanting a few lady friends to quilt with and you know what he said? Make your OWN group...
well, how on earth do I do that? I don't know who likes to sew/quilt?
I USED THESE TWO FORMS
"GETTING OUT THE WORD"
"Would you like to meet with other Quilters or other Stitching friends on a regular basis? Do you already quilt? Do you want to learn to quilt? A local group of ladies are forming a Stitching/Quilting Group to meet on a regular basis? All skill levels welcome! Please come to our organizational meeting (state time, date, location, directions) For further information please email (insert name, email, or FB info)
THAT WAS LAST AUGUST
BY SEPTEMBER WE HAD OUR FIRST MEETING
10 LADIES SHOWED UP!
We meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month in a large local community room (Dist. County Shed/Road Commission/Polling Place), free of charge, complete with full service kitchen, tables (the local road crew guys set up and take down our tables!) lots of electrical outlets, and storage space for our supplies.
The group has a total of about 12-15 members but a solid core of 8-9 ladies who come all the time (unless vacationing,sick, surgery, family illness, etc). Most of these ladies never knew each other before last Sept. and we are now a full blown sisterhood!
Yes, indeed, THE BEST THING, I've done since retiring in Dec. 2008.
Not only do we Stitch, but we EAT well. It has become quite the CENTER of discussion as to what our next meeting's menu will be...we have some fantastic cooks!
SEW, You See...
YOU can do it too!
Don't sit around wishing you had some friends to sew with...
MAKE YOUR OWN
THEY WILL COME
RIGHT, SASSY SEWERS?
