Date: Thurs, Apr 19, 2018

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm (8-ish)

We will have the ‘wonder’ fabric challenge results to judge, along with the “vest in an hour”. Since only a few of us attended the Feb meeting, we thought we’d do it again – this time with Verla’s pattern on hand and we welcome all who want to sew this up in the meeting.

No-sew Weaving Workshop

Location: Masonic Lodge, 40 W 1st St, Reno

Date: Sat, Jun 30, 2018

Time: 9am – 1pm

Shorter workshop that will focus on weaving various patterns (easiest to start with tumbling blocks, then try the others which DO make you think about over/under which strips to make the design). There will also be a setup to show you the pin-weaving technique differs along with some novelty yarns to work with (if you want to explore before workshop ends).

Please register by June 24 (end of the Reno Quilt Show), so we can be sure to have enough kits made (padded work surface).

HERE is the registration form – cost will be $35/members and $45/non-members.

Las Vegas, NV | July 11-15, 2018

 

Since it’s in our “backyard” we’re thinking of making it a group outing – details will evolve as we hear from those interested (charter a bus, convoy of cars, or fly and meet at the hotel).

The ASG annual Conference is a once-a-year opportunity for sewing enthusiasts to gather to celebrate all things sewing, quilting and embroidery.

  • Shopping: The vendor-packed Exhibit Hall is full of both large and small sewing and quilting businesses selling fabric, notions, patterns, sewing furniture, machines, threads, projects, DVD’s, books and more.
  • Education: The conference also has daily educational opportunities in the form of workshops, seminars and lectures. Classes are tailored to every sewing interest from couture sewing to stash management, from fitting and alterations to surface design and embellishment, from hand sewing to serger sewing, as well as every level of sewing skill
  • Fellowship: Tours, get-togethers, lunches, the annual Fashion Show and more!
