President’s Letter - April 2017
How would you describe your sewing studio? I was asked that question to introduce myself at a recent workshop. As the ladies in the room answered that question, there were many different answers. My answer was that there are many works in progress in my sewing studio. I wanted to say that it is a work in progress, but I couldn’t with the wording of the sentence I had to use. My sewing space is in the middle of change because of a visit from grandchildren. I had moved my sewing things to make room for their visit. Few of us have dedicated space for our sewing. My favorite place to sew at home is on my dining room table. Most of what I accomplish is at retreats, sew days or in sewing groups. I work full time as many of you do, so planning a time for sewing works best for me. My sewing studio is in fact my storage area of supplies and my WIPs. Yes, there are a few of them. Last meeting I showed two of my completed ones and I am hopeful there will be more. Betty Maxwell
We are located in Wellsboro, PA, but our members come from far and near to attend meetings and workshops.
Our guild is committed to quilting, with monthly meetings that include a program, two open sewing settings, workshops, outreach projects, and a National Speaker each year. The bi-annual exhibit, held at the Gmeiner Art & Culture Center, in Wellsboro PA, has always been a beautiful addition to the art exhibits at the gallery. Although the guild is relatively new, established in 1998, it has grown rapidly to include 140 members.
