Third Thursday Demo - May 18
How do you organize your sewing area?

We're doing something special for our May Third Thursday Demo (next week), and it involves you! We will be discussing and showing how we organize our sewing areas and fabric stashes. Bring your best ideas to share and gather new ones from others. Please take photos of your organization techniques and your sewing area and email them to us no later than Saturday, May 13 at 6 p.m. We'll put together a slide show. When you send photos, please put your full name in the subject line of the email. BONUS . . . take a before and after photo of your sewing room - cleaning and organizing between the two photos - and you'll receive an extra door prize ticket on Demo Day.
