Sorry to keep you hanging-if you didn’t make it to a Fashion Sewing Club meeting in March-but here’s the scoop:
After much heartfelt consideration Laurel has decided to move on to the next phase of her life and no longer be an integral part of Material Girls. She has thoroughly enjoyed all the people and will continue to attend Club meetings (she already has fabric and ideas for April) but wanted to cut down on the late night sewing and last minute pressure of the monthly meetings. We will miss her contributions but will continue to call on her for fit and tailoring consultations-she pins a mean dart!
Anyone who would like to send an email to Laurel can do so at [email protected]
The other big door that closed this month is our Hancock/Bernina/Southtown location. As of March 9th the corporate Bernina store is no longer. However, a private Bernina (and Elna) dealer is supposed to be opening up sometime in April.
That leaves us at Treadle Yard Goods in St. Paul and Make It Sew in Chanhassen.
The Fashion Sewing Club calendar will stay the same for the Treadle meeting on the second Tuesday (continues to be the largest group) and the second Saturday (15 attendees in March!!)
The Thursday meeting (still the second Thurs. of the month) will now take place at Make It Sew at regular times of 10:30 and 6:30. No need to preregister-the meeting will always happen just like at Hancock. There will be no more Monday Club meetings at Make it Sew.
And for the month of April, the Make It Sew meeting will be free-just to make it a bit easier to find the store the first time 🙂
We hope these changes are easy to follow-if not, ask questions. Show and tell at all meetings is picking up and that means you are being inspired to sew. That has been our goal all along.
Have a happy Easter and we’ll see you in April!
