February 2019 - Super Show and Tell
We've had time to shovel out, so let's get back to our previously planned Super Show and Tell!
Super Show and Tell is an entire meeting dedicated to sharing our members' projects. Gather up all of those finished masterpieces - quilts, bags, garments, costumes, and everything in between. If you sewed it, you can show it!
We love to soak in the creativity and enjoy hearing the stories behind the fabric. Who is it for? What were the challenges? What did you learn to do differently next time? Does the fabric have a special significance? If you used a pattern, be sure to share the pattern name and number with us.
To enhance your Show and/or Tell, we are adding a digital option this year - send in a reference photo, the "before" to your shared "after", or a snap of the item in use. Maybe the item was already gifted to its intended recipient or is too cumbersome to haul in... it can still be shared!
So many ways to submit your pics:
- Send photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
- Dropbox with email@example.com
- Share on Google photos with firstname.lastname@example.org,
Or, arrive early (30 mins please, if you can!) and bring those photos to the meeting:
- as old fashioned print-outs (overhead projector available)
- on a standard USB flash drive
- on an SD card, right out of your digital camera
And Next Month...

January 2019 - Annual Charity Sew
MASG members frequently donate their sewing skills on an individual basis, all year round. But every January, we pick a charity and come together for a sew-a-thon. This year, we will be making making tote bags and pot holders for DAIS. There are two sessions planned - one during the daytime, another in the evening. You and a guest are welcome to come to either session, no sign-up required. Stay for as much of the session(s) as you are able. We welcome sewists of all ambitions and abilities! There's always a job to be done!
