May                                                         2020


On the Road . . .


What have you been sewing? We have all made masks for family and friends. Did you ever think our sewing & stashes would make such a powerful impact in our communities? What other projects have you stitched up?


Starting May 13th join me for SCHMETZ SWIM, that's an anagram that my colleague & writer for SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW, Rita Farro, made up for See What I Made. On Wednesday's during the month of May & June, I'll be showing my finished UFO's (unfinished objects from 20 years ago), fashions & quilts I've made since Stay-At-Home orders went into place. Plus, I'll be chatting with sewing friends and giving away SCHMETZ needles and other great goodies. Mark your calendars now. Further details will be posted on FB.
