President’s Message – FALL 2019

It’s been a long, hot summer, but fall is just around the corner. September is National Sewing Month. Isn’t it amazing that a whole month is dedicated to our passion — sewing? We will be displaying our creations at two of the libraries in Leon County and the Gadsden County library during September. If you have something special that you made or a sewing item, please contact Nancy Faulkner to include it in the library displays.

We have done a whole lotta 4-H sewing camps this year. Thank all of you who helped to teach and to assemble the kits that we used. This was our first year at Liberty County, and the campers and sewing machines were great. It is always a pleasure to have campers who are eager to learn and sewing machines that actually work well.

We have added six new members: Pam Kugler, Rose Mintern, Allison Leo, Linda Meyer, Ginger Robertson and Sandy Robinson. Welcome them to our sisterhood. We still need more members, so keep on beating the bushes for ladies or gents who want to share their love of sewing with ASG. New members will become our future officers and committee chairs. Donna Dye is taking a deserved rest as our Community Service Chairperson, so begin thinking about volunteering as a replacement for her.

ASG has done so much community service this year, that it is time for us to sew for ourselves. This fall we will be doing a lot of great sewing projects for Sew It Seams and Ladies in Stitches, aka Beginners’ Group. Sew It Seams will be making scissor holders, casserole carriers, and sweatshirt jackets. Donna Dye and Robin Wolfe shared some of their awesome jackets at the last Just Sew meeting. The jackets will be done in the October and November meetings. It will be a chance for us to get creative.

Ladies in Stitches will be making towel holders with a buttonhole, casserole carriers, and Christmas napkins and placemats. Additionally, some of our members wanted to make an apron so, we will also be making an apron at the August meeting. I’m looking forward to cooler weather and lots of sewing. Happy Sewing!
