The theme of the ASG National Conference was “Magic.” The “Magic” of dreams, creative spirit, sewing for the pure joy of it, and stretching our boundaries! For me, I came, I saw, and I collected “Magic.” The classes were inspiring! The Vendors were garment-based! Patterns were fitted and plans have been made to create! Garments are ready to be sewn. Yes, it was a success!
Plus, I met wonderful people from all over. I met Board Members from National! I heard wonderful things that are yet to come for us from National! I learned that Tallahassee is not alone in trying to build membership. It is a challenge most of the Chapters have in common. It is one we have been working on and will continue to work on accomplishing.
We are coming up on our busy time of the year. Finishing projects for the holidays. Gifts to be made. I know I am dreaming of finishing them. If they haven’t been made by now, they most likely will not be made. But with the Conference “Magic” still upon me, I just may be wrong! Ask me at the Sewing Social how many I have finished! I may surprise both of us!
Life is good! I am fortunate to live in an area with so much beauty. It makes creating easy. All I have to do is look out my window and see flowers, butterflies and beautiful live oaks. The “Magic” is just outside our windows! All we have to do is enjoy it!
Looking forward to sewing with you soon — Robin
