Sew Me St. Louis 2015

Sew Me St. Louis logo
On October 24th and 25th, approximately 45 of our members gathered to sew, laugh and play together.  As you can see from the photos; which were uploaded to Instagram using the #sewmestl, it was a blast.

Things started quietly; but then kicked into high gear thanks to our wonderful Workshop Teachers...Heather, Jan and Kristy.

There was of course lots of other sewing going on in the main ballroom...

Saying Thank You isn't enough considering how generous the following companies were; but they all wanted to be a part of our retreat in some way and we could not be more humbled by their donations.  

We encourage you to send them a shout-out on social media, drop them an email, and of course consider shopping with them during this holiday season.   

There are of course others to Thank...including our Officers for ensuring things went smoothly, as well as Carolyn and Tess from our Events Committee who took the reigns and collected all of the donations, and the handful of members (you know who you are) who donated items and/or volunteered their time.  

We certainly plan on doing this again next October, so stay tuned for info coming in the first quarter of 2016.
