6rd Annual Creative Connections and Minneapolis/St Paul Chapter Annual Meeting

Come join us for our Annual Meeting/Creative Connections on Saturday, November 2nd. We are returning to Christ Episcopal of Woodbury (7305 Afton Road, Woodbury, MN).  This year there will be a “round-robin” of three 30-minute demonstrations provided by our talented members.  Each demonstration will be repeated so you can move from one to the next. There is no need to bring sewing machines or other sewing equipment. The demonstrations will be followed by lunch, the 3rd annual pin cushion swap, the annual meeting and elections.

A:  Alabama Chanin Method presented by Lori Clark 
Have you heard of the slow sewing movement?  Lori Clark will give an overview of the method, materials and equipment used to create stunning handmade garments inspired by the Alabama Chanin School of Making.

B:  Craft Cutting Machines in the Sewing Room presented by Shelly Hildreth
Shelly Hildreth will show how the  Digital Cutter can make it easy to get creative with your sewing projects in ways that simply weren't possible before. A digital cutter uses the precision of a computer to cut fabric, paper, vinyl, stencil plastic, appliques, rhinestone templates or any thin material you could cut with scissors. But it does it with a precision that's beyond what even the most skilled seamstress could do by hand.

C:  Quick Cosmetic Bag presented by Eileen Scott
Quick Cosmetic Bag- For a new twist on a cosmetic bag, just start with a placemat (embellish as desired), add a zipper, twist, fold and Voila!  It is a bag for cosmetics, sewing or crafting supplies or treats for your next retreat.

Noon to 12:45 Lunch and Third Annual Pincushion Swap – bring a pin cushion you have made for a fun pin cushion swap. Pin cushions can be any style  including, but not limited to the tomato, the strawberry, patchwork pillows, mason jar pincushion, photo frame pin cushions, etc. Have fun!
