You have noticed by now that we have changed the name of our sewing group. In 2011 we were known as Silver Spring Sewing Sisters. In 2012 we are now known as SILVER SPRING SEWING SOCIETY.
Over the course of the year many more men have become interested in our sewing group and we have expanded beyond sewing to include crafting, refashioning and thrifting. We are an all-inclusive group and are taking our skills and sewing adventures to the next level in 2012.
After dropping “sisters” from our title one of our members, Xtine, suggested we used “Society” to maintain the S.S.S.S. acronym. I thought this was a fabulous idea. In the coming year we hope to establish ourselves as a American Sewing Guild Neighborhood Group and maybe one day soon we will have our own brick and mortar. Fingers crossed and saying a little prayer for bigger and better things in 2012.
Be sure to check back every now and again for our upcoming sewing classes. This year we are offering more beginning sewing classes and more “make it and take it” classes. Right now we are in the middle of our Tote Bag making series. Join us for Tote Bag Making with a Zipper on Sunday March 4th. We are also happy to begin offering Saturday classes and more field trips.
Sew much fun coming with Silver Spring Sewing Society!
