If you sew, and if you live in southern California, you should think about joining ASGLA. It is a great group of people (mostly women but there are some men in there somewhere - we welcome anyone!) who love to sew, quilt, craft, whateva!
The American Sewing Guild has been around for quite awhile. (www.asg.org). We have a local offshoot of it in the LA and Ventura County areas...www.asgla.org. Go to the website and see if it is something you would like to look into. It's a great group of people who just love to sew (or whatever)!
Come join us!
