February 2019 Meeting Recap

We had such a great meeting with incredible inspiration.

We hosted Sara Trail, head of the Social Justice Sewing Academy. Through a series of hands-on workshops in schools, prisons and community centers across the country, SJSA empowers youth to use textile art as a vehicle for personal transformation and community cohesion and become agents of social change. Sara showed us the work that is being created in her workshops and her energy inspired us.

Also, we were excited to announce that Chawne Kimber is coming to give two workshops and a trunk show for our guild.
