- January - New Year sewing resolutions: what sewing goals do you have for the coming year? Do you hope to learn a new technique, get rid of some UFOs, or something more ambitious?
- February - Creative design touches: ideas for ways to embellish an item, whether a garment, quilt, bag, or home dec item. This may lead to a more extensive exploration of a technique in a later program.
- March - Free-motion sewing
- April - Fabric/Notions Swap: bring along stuff you'd like to "re-home", whether fabric, yarns, notions, sewing books, etc. Take home something new (to you) in its place.
- May - sewing knits with or without a serger; favorite T-shirt patterns
- June - annual sewing room tour
- July - zipper workshop, focusing on lapped and invisible zippers
- August - vacation time - no meeting
- September - Stained glass quilt techniques
- October - prepare for Make A Difference Day
- November - open for additional program; planning for following year
- December - Dinner
http://www.schohariechamber.com/pdf/quilt.pdf .Peggy N. shared some information about the Creativ Festival (and that's not a typo - it is spelled without the 'e') in Toronto where she took several classes. One class was about fly-front zipper insertion, and Peggy brought along the samples made in the class, which created a reference library of all the separate steps of sewing the zipper. We ended the meeting with some lovely Show-and-Tells, pictured below.
