Saturday “Tea” (Sat, NOV 18)

Posted by on 1-01-17 in Events | Comments Off

Annual Meeting & Tea Sew-cial

Date: Sat, Nov 18, 2017
Time: 11:00am – 2:00pm (doors open early)
Location: Masonic Lodge, 40 W 1st Street, 2nd Floor, Reno, NV

There are two nearby locations to park: the Cal-Neva parking garage (free) and the Parking Gallery, W 1st and Sierra Streets ($1.50 when stamped). Be sure to bring your parking ticket to the meeting for validation.

This is a potluck, so bring some finger food to share (appetizer, dessert, whatever) and a 1 yd ‘wonder’ fabric to trade.

In brief, we’ll have a drag & brag, fabric exchange, bingo game for prizes and food! Participants will be bringing finger food to share and a brown bag stapled closed with fabric for the exchange/challenge. We’ll also have a bingo game for give-aways. And in anticipation of our February meeting, several of us will fashion our “quick vest/capes” that you might want to try your hand at making at that meeting. The real reason we hold this Annual Meeting is to vote in our 3 CAB positions: President, Secretary, Treasurer. IF you can’t make the meeting/tea, please print and fill out The Ballot (it’s a link to the file) and mail it in so your vote is counted at the meeting and please mark on the envelope as “ATTN: Ballot” so we wait until the meeting to open & count your vote.

Bring a secured brown bag of “wonder” fabric (minimum 1 yard of fabric you may be wondering why/when it was purchased) to exchange. A number will be assigned and all you have to do is pick another brown bag (you could opt to leave it unopened and it will remain that way until the garage sale) in the exchange (no swaps, no steals, unless brokered by individuals!). And, yes, there is a challenge associated with this fabric you receive – just use your imagination and at the April meeting (after Camp Sew & Sew) we’ll see your creation and participants will cast their vote so we can determine 1-2-3 places as to use of the “wonder” fabric received (yes, $$ prizes for those top creations). See what others make of your wonder fabric!

Camp Sew & Sew – 2018

Posted by on 1-01-17 in Events, Uncategorized | Comments Off

Camp Sew & Sew at Zephyr Cove

LOCATION: Zephyr Cove Presbyterian Conference Center
DATE:  April 2-6 (Mon-Fri)

Join us at our annual sewing retreat. We’ll again have that beautiful room, Inspiration Point, that looks out over the lake with huge windows, so join us for some fun and finish your various projects. The final price will reflect the extra day of sewing – but all felt that we all too often ran out of time and wanted the extra day. HERE is the application form. Fees increase after March 1, 2018 (from $425 to $450 for members for 5 days, 4 night stay with meals).

As before, you’re welcome to come Sunday afternoon to help set up the tables in the sewing room and spend that first night – we share a bed and room to keep costs down (e.g. 1 room to fit 6). Or just come Sunday, help set up the workspaces and your own and skip the night stay.
