April 15th - State Fair Bootcamp
Panel Discussion and Show & Tell
A panel of members with years of experience will share with us their knowledge and offer us some tips for submitting garments for State Fair judging. If you've ever considered showing your sewing at the Fair, don't miss out on this discussion. We'll also have a Show & Tell of your winter and early spring sewing projects. We'd especially love to see what you've made with free table or fabric sale finds!
