On Saturday afternoon the lovely Amy of Sew Well hosted a fun meet-and-greet at her house for Seamstress Erin, who recently left the San Francisco sewing and blogging scene and joined us way-cool Seattle-ites. Thanks Amy, for your hospitality, and the chance to meet some new Seattle sewists!
And that got me to thinking……
…about community. Specifically, about the sewing community.
Do you have a sewing community? Is it exclusively a virtual, online community, or do you meet in person as well? Do you associate only with people of a similar sewing ability? How many people from other countries do you “know” or communicate with? What do you like best about your community? What would make it better?
My first “real” sewing community was the American Sewing Guild, and I am blessed with so many wonderful friends in our Seattle chapter. I have really only been active in the online sewing world the past 3 or 4 years, but I LOVE all my online pals just as much as my ASG sisters. And it is especially cool to chat with sewists in countries other than the U.S. Some things are just the same, and some things are unique to each locale.
Alright, your turn! I’d love to hear about your sewing community. Do tell!
