October Meeting: Capsule Wardrobe Planning with Samantha Schmidt


Our next guild meeting is via Zoom, on Tues Oct 12 at 7 pm. All welcome! The Zoom link will be shared closer to the date. 

What will be doing, you ask? We will be learning master tips for creating a Capsule Wardrobe with our Canadian climate in mind! Samantha Schmidt from the blog is an experienced capsule maker and will be sharing ideas on how to make this concept work for you -- based in Ottawa, she focuses on how to be practical about capsules and still have all the all-weather clothing you need. 

Hope you will join us and be ready to learn some tips for organizing your sewing queue to meet your needs. We will start at 7 so will have a waiting room & let you in then. See log in info below.

September Season Kickoff: Meetup in the Park!

We are happy to announce that the SGG is back for another season! 

Our first meeting will be next Sunday, Sept. 12, 2-4 pm -- in person! We are hosting a meetup next to the Bridge to Nowhere, in Confederation Park.  Please feel free to drop by anytime you can in that time; we will catch up with one another, share our summer makes and fall sewing plans, and brainstorm ideas for the Guild this year. 

There are a few benches and picnic tables in the space but please bring your own lawnchair and/or beverage to be comfy. Wear one of your recent makes and snap a photo in the gardens or at the Instagrammable bridge 🙂

Seasonal Update: SGG 2021-2022

 Update on the SGG in our 2021-2022 Season:

With feedback from members, we have decided to hold an outdoor meetup for our September launch (next Sunday, Sept 12, 2-4, Confederation Park -- see following post!)

We will continue our Oct, Nov & Dec meetings via Zoom.

We will reassess the situation and decide if we will meet in-person starting in January.

Because of this, we have also decided that there will be NO membership fee required for the Fall 2021 session. If we return to in-person meetings there will be a reduced fee at that time.

If you have always wanted to check out the SGG Zoom meetings, now is the time! If you have friends interested in the Guild, please share this info with them.
