New members who sign up with the local guild get their membership half price (normal fee is $40, you will be charge $20 if you choose to sign up).
The last meeting of the year was Dec. 1 -- the holiday tea I posted about. The ASG group meets once a month.
January 19--videos (most likely about beading)--They are about beading to prepare for the Feb. program.
Feb 9-- there will be a beading program --two guests-- Linda Brontzck willl do a workshop/provide kits for making jewelry with beads (she has had many award winning items at the State Fair) and the other guest, Heather Harthoph (spelling?) will talk about beading fabric, show some of her garments--trunk show There is a fee -- $15 for
nonmembers, $10 for members.
March 8-- Fran Hyde-- New Hartford- Feminine Touch Fabrics. She has an amazing shop in New Hartford. Apparently she gets bolt ends and stuff from NY -- kinda like EOS. She carries some lovely knits and lycra from what the boardmembers tell me. She will be bringing some of her store and also doing either a trunk show or some kind of talk--I'm not sure.
Ther is some kind trip in the works with Rochester guild to the Cleveland Sewing Extravaganza.
April 10-- there is a sewing and quilting show in Wooster, MA--and regional conference -- a group will be going, you can volunteer to man the table and get comp''d the show entrance fee and one class. I think there is going to be some carpool organization for transportation to this.
There was talk of some planning to go the Needle Craft Convention in Connecticut.
End of May--first part of June-- sewing retreat to Stella Maris in Skaneateles, $195 fee, limited to 30 people. Shopping in pajamas at Patchworks Plus. Kitsy D'Meer (excuse my spelling) enters frequently in the Hoffman challenge-- I think she will do a trunk show. March 1, 2008 is the deadline for registering for members. They typically open it up after guild members have had a chance to register to other guilds and interested people.
They will have small class/workshops if you want. Many people bring their UFO's to finish, it is usually a very productive time. I like that there will be many people to ask ideas of and to help with any
June 14-- 8:30 am fabric sale--this is a big deal, they plan to advertise heavily, this is a fun time.
July 26-- Ladies Day Out to Fieldstone House.
Also -- in July 11-12-- the ASG National Conference in Chicago

Hey, I am a young sewer in Syracuse and have finally determined that sewing is such a solitary pursuit I need to push my boundaries and interact with people in my community. And have someone to go fabric shopping with.
Your posting here was from 2007 and I was wondering what was going on currently and if you were still actively part of this group.
Thanks, Contact me,

In May the ASG is featuring a retreat at Stella Maris in Skaneateles.
In June they are having a fabric/sewing item rummage sale.
In July they typically do a "Ladies Day Out" but we just did something like that a couple of weeks ago.
There are also neighborhood groups that meet-- One is in Clay on Rt 31 that meets the first Monday of the month, 7-9 at the Clay Senior Center
The other one meets at Manilus Library on Saturday mornings the second or 3rd week of the month, I'm not sure of the next meeting on that one.
There is also a group that meets in Cazenovia and one in Cortland.
I also encourage your to check out Peterson Sewing School. Barbara Peterson runs it and they have some good classes that might pique your interest more than some of the Guild activities. She is located at the corner of Euclid and Westcott Sts. in the Church building (not ECHO).

They are offering some beginner sewing classes at the Hobby Lobby on Rt 31. I just checked the site and it seems those classes started 3/12.
