December 2020: Our Holiday Social!

Our next meeting on Tuesday December 8, 7 pm via Zoom is a relaxed Holiday Social for SGG members -- plus anyone who just wants to check out the Guild and see what we're like! We'll be gathering to socialize and chat about our sewing...maybe even have a couple of party games...

Everyone is welcome: if you have a friend who'd like to visit us, all are welcome to attend. If you're not a paid up member yet, come to this meeting to see how we do things, and decide if $15 for 6 more meetings in the first half of 2021 is a good deal!

Don't forget to bring any Sew & Tell to share -- and relax with your fave beverage & snack while you're at it -- recipes welcome

To be sure to get the Zoom link when it's ready, join our Facebook page -- paid up members will also get an email with the link to remind them. 

Hope to see you all there!

November Sewing Challenge for January Reveal

After our November meeting with Her Honour Elizabeth Dowdeswell we were all impressed with the quality of her fabric choices and complex pattern selection. 

 And so we set a challenge to SGG members to make something worthy of a Lieutenant Governor's wardrobe -- with a show & tell date of January to give us time to make something elaborate
So if you have a jacket or a coat or a suit you'd like to try out, make it for our January meeting and be ready to show off your amazing work!

As always the parameters are fairly open -- make something that you feel represents the more formal style, or work wear, needed in a position like the Lieutenant Governor's, maybe inspired by her go-to of a neutral dress with an eye-catching structured jacket or drapier kimono-style topper. Make what you like and tell us why you chose it.
